Global finance faces some major shifts driven by the fintech revolution, Brexit and Eurozone debt. While central banks and the finance industry grapple with the opportunities and challenges these pose, some are asking whether the finance industry needs to rediscover its core purpose to increase productivity and deliver greater value for the consumer in the coming years. 


Knowledge of how our financial institutions are built and why they behave the way they do is essential to achieving this aim. With that insight, business leaders and governments can strengthen their financial institutions and avoid a repeat of the industry crisis caused by the global economic downturn in 2008. 


Our faculty produce cutting-edge analysis on the finance industry’s hottest topics. As academic leaders in global finance and economics, they also provide insight into how key players can strengthen the sector.
