Course content

Master your understanding of advanced economic skills and techniques on our MSc Economics to inform decision-making by all stakeholders including private businesses and policy-makers. Lead in the design and delivery of improved economic outcomes which address societal, policy-maker and private business needs whilst realising the quantitative skills required to create effective solutions to the economic challenges you will encounter in your career.

Our Economics MSc programme allows you to develop high-level knowledge and skills around the monetary rationale of economic interactions. It is designed to increase your confidence in applied economic theory and applied research techniques so you can advance as a talented economist who is capable of succeeding in a fluctuating global environment.

As an economist you will be presented with diverse economic quandaries and must respond to the different economic drivers and behaviours of everyone from individuals and households to international organisations and governments to achieve positive economic outcomes.

Employability is embedded into our programme with opportunities to engage with local employers through our consultancy and placement projects and develop relationships with professional bodies such as the Government Economic Service via guest lectures and research projects.

As a graduate of this programme your quantitative skills and scenario analysis will be coveted by government departments, devolved administrations, local authorities and private businesses. You will graduate as a highly employable individual who has developed skills including advanced econometric modelling and quantitative cost benefit analysis. Plus, these skills are further enriched through the programme's optional modules and the choice of dissertation, consultancy and placement project modules which deliver high quality employability skills.
