This specialist Master’s programme examines in depth critical issues in international business economics, together with the complexities of, and challenges facing, today’s world markets.

We focus on practical economic analysis, policy formulation and market efficiency in a real-world context, designed to bring you up-to-speed with challenges facing modern businesses through guest speakers (subject to availabilty), industry visits, case studies and internship opportunities*. Emphasis is given to developing quantitative skills to evaluate outcomes of economic policies and interventions, making evidence-based decisions.

Our experienced teaching staff aim to share their professional or research expertise, with current staff members having worked as economists for large companies, run national training courses or published in leading journals, including the International Journal of Economics and Business Research. You can also benefit from industry-standard facilities, including our Trading Floor, which is equipped with 42 dual-screen Bloomberg terminals. Please note that this is subject to availability and staff are subject to change.
