Course content

Our MSc Economics and Business Strategy programme will enable you to apply the tools of economics and strategy to influence business performance and to develop strategic thinking and decision-making in a competitive business environment.

The programme will equip you with the skills of a professional business economist, for careers in business, government, regulation, international organisations and for higher awards by research.

Taught by experienced researchers and practitioners, students will use the insights of economic theory to address real-world problems. The strong emphasis on applying theoretical and quantitative skills to real world situations – as well as a focus on developing critical thinking skills – will enable you to work effectively both in industry and government.

Students will be able to further sharpen their practical skills by completing a research project that allows them to apply their knowledge to a strategy and policy related issue.
