Overview

The BSc Economics and Finance programme will provide you with a real competitive edge as you gain knowledge of both economic and financial theories and an understanding of the relationship between the mechanisms driving economic systems and the workings of capital markets.

You will develop the intellectual, analytical, and modelling skills needed to solve problems in economics, finance and a wide range of related areas. You will also learn to use the analytical tools required to appreciate and critically analyse economic and financial policy issues and real-world problems.

The interdisciplinary path will prepare you for specialist courses such as financial economics and financial econometrics. This programme will also provide a basic knowledge of accounting, which is invaluable for understanding how enterprises work.

Why should I study Economics and Finance at XJTLU?

By studying on this course, you can expect to:

  • understand financial transactions in a broader economic context, as financial markets emerge as the next step in the development of the Chinese economy;
  • take advantage of XJTLU's partnerships with important players in international financial markets as well as a Thomson Reuters Financial Lab that you can access on site for research and practice;
  • be well-prepared to sit the CFA Institute Investment Foundations Program exam at a discounted registration fee when you successfully complete the only module in China accepted into the CFA Institute Investment Foundations Programme.
  • get on the fast-track to a career in the financial sector or in the professional services industry; and
  • earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a globally recognised degree from the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities.

Modules

  • Year One

    UK degrees are three years long whereas in China they are four, therefore we do accept students with certain qualifications directly into Year Two, which is the start of the main academic programme. Most students, however, enter into Year One, which provides you with a range of interesting modules, language classes and core skills for your degree.

  • Year Two

  • Year Three

  • Year Four

This programme is based in real life - for example the professors always help us to understand and apply economic and financial theories to industry trends and issues. Even the assessments use real financial data!
