Transition into public finance leadership with your high-level understanding of the use of fiscal policy in the economy.
- Degree specialisation designed to prepare finance professionals for leadership roles in public finance
- Examine principles and conceptual benchmarks of public finance policy
- Understand the interaction between taxes, spending and the budget
If you want to strengthen your leadership capacity in the field of public finance, this degree specialisation is for you. Central to the program is the question of financing government, with a focus on how the interaction of taxes and expenditure impacts all levels of decision making in national and global economies.
Through your examination of the policies, institutions and regulatory structures for raising public finance, and managing public expenditures, you will gain clarity on public finance policy benchmarks. These include efficiency, equity and redistribution, administration and compliance, and the politics of policymaking.
By understanding the core features of the budget and of fiscal institutions in the executive and legislature, as well as the role of the judiciary, you’ll be ready to critically engage in reform debates about taxes and expenditures, economic disruption, management of the budget in times of austerity, and the use of fiscal policy in the economy.
