Course content

Birmingham Business School has been delivering management education in Singapore since 1994, when its MBA programme was originally launched. The MSc Economics programme extends these activities in Singapore and is delivered in conjunction with our partners, the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM).

A deep understanding of economics is key to our continuing function as a global economy to establish successful trade, monetary and welfare policies across nations. The Master of Science (MSc) (Economics) degree provides an advanced training in core areas of economics that are widely used in economics-based professions.

You will receive specialist training in areas of relevance and take options in other areas of your interest to meet the growing demands for economics to address and solve real-world problems. This degree will give you a clear understanding and application of economics theory and techniques to modern businesses in emerging and developing countries.
