In September 2007, ICEF launched a MSc Programme in Financial Economics in partnership with the LSE, with the support of several Russian and international corporate donors. Its aim is to train top-level international experts in Economics and Finance.
The programme offers a high-calibre theoretical and practical education in Financial Economics. Its curriculum is a unique blend of core courses in Micro- and Macroeconomics, Econometrics, Asset Pricing and Corporate Finance, together with applied courses in various fields of Economics and Finance.
MSc graduates go on to start their careers as professional economists or analysts at financial institutions (such as HSBC, Morgan Stanley, Barclays Capital and Credit Suisse) and non-financial companies (for example, Rosatom, Microsoft and Renault), or continue their studies at the doctoral level in top universities like the LSE.
