A Practical History of Financial Markets is designed, written and taught by leading investment practitioners: Andrew Smithers, Stephen Wright, John Greenwood OBE, Peter Warburton, Herman Brodie and Russell Napier. These teachers deliver the course in an intensive two-day session (usually Thursday to Friday).

For 2015 we have added a half day to accommodate guest lectures by Jon Compton and Edward Chancellor and a lecture by Russell Napier on the global outlook seen through the prism of financial history.

The course is supported by a 700-page textbook and a website containing self-test questions, teachers’ feedback and additional materials. Utilising the textbook and the website, students can opt to take the course via distance learning.

The course is eligible for 21 Professional Development credits as granted by the CFA Institute. It also forms one unit of the Edinburgh Business School MBA programme.

Launched in 2004, the course is owned and operated by Didasko – The Financial Education Company, a Scottish charity founded for the promotion of financial education.
