Course content

Do you want a high flying, well paid economics career in government, business or finance? Do you have excellent critical thinking and analytical skills and are you a good communicator?

Economics plays an important role in the business world providing an understanding of the motives and actions of customers, suppliers, competitors, employers and financiers. It’s also crucial for informing the strategic and operational decision making of managers and directors. On this degree, you’ll acquire transferrable skills that will make you highly sought after by employers across the public and private sectors, and accelerate you into a high earning career.

Your MSc Economics programme at Swansea University is designed for graduates in economics related subject areas who are looking for an advanced programme to enhance their career or explore further research opportunities.

You will develop the skills and expertise required of the professional economist, whilst developing your ability to understand and conduct innovative research in both theoretical and applied situations.

The sophisticated and multi-faceted transferable skills you’ll acquire on this course will open doors or provide stepping-stones to a wide variety of other less specialist career paths in commerce, industry and academia.
