Economics also focuses on contemporary issues such as the globalisation of world markets, international monetary systems, privatisation of industry and the management of the economy which include case studies, presentations, group work and projects as well as the more formal lectures with tutorial support.
Typical graduates go on to work in such areas as investment banking, financial services, money markets, commercial banking, journalism, economic analysis, policy analysis, public/private sector economic research units or continue in academia to research further topics of interest to them. Given the continuing central importance of the Financial Services Sector to the Irish Economy, there is clear demand for high quality graduates with numeracy, analytic and practical skills in Economics and Finance.
The modules on this programme offered by Dublin Institute Of Technology have been carefully chosen to expose you, the prospective student, to a wide range of cutting edge knowledge in the area of economics and finance while giving you a solid grounding in the fundamentals of economic thought that you will be able to apply to new events in the economy both in Ireland and internationally for many years to come. This is complemented by a focus on financial services understanding not only the internal issues within an organisation but also the external pressures and opportunities that firms deal with on a regular basis.
The programme deliberately has a strong core in both Economics and Finance demonstrating the inter linkages between the topics and how economic thought has shaped the discipline of Finance while current financial market behaviour provides food for thought for economic theory. The programme allows you to develop your own interests in the final year through the availability of a wide range of options and also the opportunity to work on an interesting real research issue. A range of experienced and dedicated resources are available to you as you make these important choices. This degree programme develops analytical abilities and financial knowledge as well as key skills and competencies in team working, independent research and critical analysis by use of a variety of learning approaches which include case studies, presentations, group work and projects as well as the more formal lectures with tutorial support.
