Course content

The aim of this taught Masters is to provide you with an integrated and rigorous programme of training in quantitative techniques and economic analysis which will equip you with the skills sought after in any applied career track involving analytical work.

The programme is delivered by the Economics and Mathematics departments and provides core and optional courses which give an excellent foundation in economics-based quantitative skills. Core courses include Econometrics, Microeconomics, Statistics for Economics and Research Methods. Optional courses include Inference, Topics in Applied Statistics, Evaluation Economics, Financial Econometrics, Microeconometrics and Applied Probability.

The relatively small size of the postgraduate community within Economics means you will benefit from a strong sense of group-identity and enjoy close contact with the academic staff of the department who produce world-leading research. The joint nature of the programme means you will also benefit from exposure to staff, peers and teaching methods from the Mathematics Department. The course director serves as your personal advisor up until the spring and you will then be assigned a personal dissertation supervisor.
