Course Summary

Overview

Our MSc Economics programmes are intended to deepen your knowledge and understanding of economics as an academic discipline. Our programmes are designed to be flexible so that you will get the most intellectual return, whether you studied economics as the principal focus of your undergraduate degree, or if economics were a minor part of a quantitatively-focussed degree.

If you want to progress into a career involving Econometrics or Economics research this is the programme for you. Whilst sharing core modules with the MSc Economics, you will be given a strong foundation in Econometrics topics as you will be taught at a more advanced level on these modules.

In addition to core modules you have a wide range of options to choose from to specialise your degree further and tailor it towards your chosen field, be that investment banking, policy-making or further study.

A central objective of all of the programmes is to provide you with insight into the latest thinking in economics. You will be able to attend a series of research seminars, during which you can discuss and present current research papers. You can also participate in the departmental seminar series, which attracts leading academics from universities across the world and provides you with the opportunity to gain insight into current research in economics and econometrics.

Assessment

Modules are assessed through a mixture of group work, coursework, project work and examinations; the weighting of each of these components will vary according to the academic requirements of the module.

Careers

Our Masters programmes are designed to prepare you for a successful career, wherever in the world you plan to work. Employers expect advanced communication and technical skills, team-working and independent research, project-management and the very latest specialist knowledge from their postgraduate recruits.

Our MSc in Economics and Econometrics enables you to develop the research, analytic, economic and econometric skills and subject expertise that will make you a valuable asset from the start of your career.

This is also an excellent programme from which to launch an academic career by later pursuing your own PhD research topic in economics.
