Course Summary

Our MSc International Economics, Finance and Development is based in one of the top economics schools in the UK. The course will provide you with an advanced understanding of core economics principles, looking closely at international trade, finance and the market frictions affecting developing economies. Our MSc International Economics, Finance and Development focuses on two specific areas, in addition to providing a thorough understanding of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. The first area develops expertise in the fields of international trade and international finance, with particular emphasis on the role these have in economic development. The second area focuses on financial frictions faced by developing and emerging economies. You will also cover stabilisation policy, adjustment and economic liberalisation, and study the principal sources of external finance for developing countries. If you want to work in research and or policy-making in international organisations and think-tanks focused on development issues, you will find this course particularly relevant.
