About the Concentration
The Global Financial Institutions Concentration combines academic courses, research and fieldwork to provide a rigorous study of global financial markets. Students will acquire in-depth knowledge of the structure and operation of U.S. and world financial institutions.
Through a sequence of six courses, two internships and a workshop to develop appropriate computer skills, the GFX would specifically equip students with knowledge of the workings of financial institutions such as the IMF, the World Bank, Central banks around the world, and private financial institutions as well as related financial regulations. Students could normally complete the requirements of GFX in three years.
The concentration will admit a maximum of 15 students each year, starting in their sophomore year.
