Presentación

The Public Economic Management and Finance (PEMF) specialism works from the macro down to sectoral and firm level in order to build the confidence of students as economists. The approach is practical and introduces theories as appropriate to solve practical problems. Students analyse practical cases, using real data as far as possible to provide excellent experience and develop required skills in public economic and finance management.

The programme includes development of understanding of the role of the state in managing the economy and public finances; managing monetary, exchange rate, fiscal, trade and environmental policy; budgeting, fiscal decentralisation and working with the private sector; and, designing, planning, financing and evaluating projects.
