Under The Academic Guidance Of London School Of Economics And Political Science, this degree offers you the opportunity to combine in-depth studies in economics and finance. It provides you with the analytical tools from the fields of mathematics,statistics, economics and econometrics together with institutional knowledge required to work as a financial economist.
This degree has been designed to provide the economic reasoning, quantitative skills, and institutional knowledge required by financial economists to solve practical problems arising in finance. These skills should make graduates highly suited for further studies as well as for a career in investment banking or in financial markets.

Russell Square International College presents the opportunity to pursue some of the most sought-after undergraduate courses in the world, laying the foundation for academic and professional success alike. Since the strength of the college is small, it has a high teacher-to-student ratio, which helps students stand-out in such challenging courses.
My main attraction in pursuing a degree from University of London (UOL) was the name 'LSE' that was involved with it. For an economics lover like myself, this course gives a comprehensive understanding of economics and all its branches.
After my days at RSIC, I came to the UK. RSIC's UOL course enabled me to get a scholarship to pursue my Masters in the UK. Currently, I am working at 4C Associates, a consulting firm in London, UK. RSIC has helped to mould me in many ways, and it prepares me to step into the real world. The capabilities I've developed over the course of my degree are exactly what employees are looking for in a graduate.
