The launch of the new MSc in Money, Banking and Central Banking will take place at the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) in London on Monday 13 March. Dr Juan Castaneda, co-director of the MSc, will introduce Professors Tim Congdon and Geoffrey Wood, who will be discussing the major topics covered in the programme: such as policies aimed at achieving price stability and financial stability, as well as the current debates on alternative central banks’ strategies and the effects of tighter bank regulation in a post-crisis era.
If you wish to attend, please RSVP to email@example.com or call Gail Grimston on +44 (0)1280 827524.
The MSc is unique in that it offers specialised teaching in banking and financial markets and central banking and emphasises the importance of high-quality monetary and banking analysis in order to be able to assess which policies are compatible with steady output growth and long-term financial stability.
A particular concern of the MSc programme in Money, Banking and Central Banking will be the changes in banking and financial markets during and since the Global Financial Crisis. The role of money and banking in macroeconomic instability has been largely disregarded in recent decades; and the 2007-09 crisis was a powerful reminder that “money matters”, even if the relationship between money and the economy remains controversial.
This programme aims to produce graduates with the knowledge and skills required for a career in business and finance. It will be of particular value to those who want to work in the banking industry, including central banking.
