Course Summary

Overview

The MSc Economics offers students rigorous training in economic theory and analytical methods to answer pressing socio-economic questions. It places much emphasis on using the appropriate theoretical framework for interpreting various current economic and financial issues. These include the economic impact of rising US trade tariffs, Brexit, shocks in exchange rates, China as an economic power, reducing poverty, and the rise in the global market power of firms.

Programme Overview

The MSc Economics is an excellent opportunity for students who pursue a career in global industry, banks or government organisations after having developed a sophisticated understanding of the economy and acquired state-of-the-art analytical skills. It is also well suited for students who wish to continue a professional research career, for instance working within international organisations or research institutes.

Career prospects

Graduates will gain a sound theoretical grounding in the area of Economics and will have developed a range of analytical and personal skills. The aim of this programme is to enable students to pursue a research-oriented career in the financial industry, international organisations, central banks, academia and research institutions.

Modules

This module aims to provide an opportunity to understand and appreciate the fundamental aspects of decision making in an uncertain environment, allowing for the possible synchronic or diachronic incidence of risk. Individual risk linked behaviour will be linked to symmetric and asymmetric imperfect information scenarios. In this context individual or circumscribed group behaviour may be related to an aggregate and institutional context.
