The Institute of International Monetary Research is very pleased to announce the new MSc programme in Money, Banking and Central Bankingoffered by the University of Buckingham from September 2017. The MSc programme is unique in that it offers specialised teaching in banking and financial markets and central banking. Our MSc 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.

We would like to invite you to attend the launch of the new MSc in Money, Banking and Central Banking hosted by the IEA. Dr Juan Castaneda, co-director of the MSc programme, will be introducing two of the teaching staff of the programme, 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 or call Gail Grimston on 01280 827524.
