Our MSc Economics and Finance programme will provide you with the capability to apply modern macroeconomic, microeconomic and econometric methods in order to assess and shape organisational, government and financial policy.

Taught by academic experts in economics and finance, you will learn how to apply modern macroeconomic, microeconomic and econometric methods in order to assess and shape organisational, government and financial policy.
