Course Summary

The MSc International Business Economics is part of our Applied Training Programme, which is designed to provide key skills in economics. It’s ideal if you’re a graduate without an economics background, yet wish to develop the analytical skills of an economist. It’s also suitable if you’re an economics graduate and wish to develop specialist expertise in this area without committing to full research training.

You will gain a firm foundation in your subject through compulsory taught modules in Economic Concepts, Econometrics, International Trade, and Multinational Firms. Alongside this, you will choose from a wide range of optional modules on topics such as finance, financial mathematics, environmental economics, and media economics. Towards the end of your 12 months with us you will write a dissertation, which will be supervised by a member of the School of Economics.

We also offer additional support to help you get the most from your Master’s. This includes an optional, intensive pre-sessional course in the fortnight before your programme begins in September. This courseincorporates an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you will use in your MSc programme. While not compulsory, we strongly recommend you take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
