Our MSc in Economics will appeal to you if you have a strong background in the subject and wish to gain advanced and rigorous training in modern economics, as preparation for a career as a professional economist or analyst.
You will receive advanced teaching in the core areas of macroeconomic and microeconomic theory, econometrics and research methods, and you’ll also be able to choose from a wide portfolio of optional modules. An 8,000-word dissertation provides an opportunity to explore your own interests across these fields of study. You will be automatically enrolled on a pre-sessional Mathematics and Statistics programme to equip you in advance with the methodological skills you’ll need to succeed.
By the end of the course you will be able to read and understand research papers and articles in academic journals, to build theoretical models, to initiate empirical research and to evaluate its findings. Our postgraduates regularly progress to senior careers in banking, finance, public policy and academic research.
