Course content

The Masters in Economics MSc course at City is designed for postgraduate students wanting to follow a pure Economics Masters degree, rather than a specialised course. You can choose modules from fields including health economics, financial economics, economic regulation and competition, and development economics, as you build your own 'tailor-made' degree. The postgraduate Economics course also serves as a stepping stone to an Economics PhD.

You will be taught by a highly-research active team of academic staff, with many staff appearing at conferences or writing articles in their areas of expertise. The Economics Masters course director Professor Neelam Jain has researched and taught at North American universities including the University of Minnesota, Northern Illinois University and the University of Virginia.
