Course Summary

On this course, you'll develop your expertise in the fields of finance and economics by taking on intensive research-led training in advanced economic theory, econometrics and research methods, combined with a particular focus on finance.

Alongside core modules in economic theory and financial econometrics, you'll have the opportunity to choose from a range of optional modules, giving you the chance to tailor the course to your own interests and goals.

This MSc is ideal for you if you’d like to work as a professional economist in government, financial institutions, business, commerce, international agencies and other similar organisations. It's also suitable if you’re thinking of going on to a PhD.

Our MSc Finance and Economics is part of our Academic and Professional Programme – designed for people who want to pursue a professional career within finance or economics or move into PhD study.

It’s ideal for you if you’ve studied economics before and are looking to specialise further – through intensive, research-led training in advanced economics with a particular specialty in finance. You should already have a good undergraduate degree (equivalent to a 2:1 or a 1st) with a substantial component of economics, or a graduate diploma in economics.

You'll build your expertise with core compulsory taught modules in microeconomic theory and financial econometrics, along with a range of optional modules. Along with your dissertation, this is an area where you can tailor the course to meet your own personal interests and aspirations.

Your dissertation – which you'll write towards the end of your year with us – gives you the freedom to choose your own topic from within the area of finance and economics. Throughout your dissertation, you'll benefit from supervision and support from a member of the School of Economics.

We offer specialised structural support to help you negotiate your masters course. This includes compulsory, intensive pre-sessional training before the start of teaching on your course modules. This training incorporates the techniques of calculus and matrix algebra and an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you'll use in your MSc programme.
