ECOM137 - China and Global Financial Markets

Credits: 15

Module Convenor: Dr Yu Zheng

China's financial markets and institutions operate in ways that differ significantly from those in other major economies such as the US and Euro-area. Despite the importance of the Chinese economy, these unique features of its financial industry are not covered in standard finance courses - thus this module aims to fill that gap. This course is aimed at providing the students with an understanding of i) How financial markets and institutions operate in China, ii) How China interacts with global financial markets.
