Course content

Our MSc Economics of International Finance and Trade is part of our Applied Training Programme, which is designed to provide key skills in economics. It’s ideal if you’re a graduate without an economics background, wishing to develop the analytical skills of an economist. It’s also suitable if you're an economics graduate wishing to develop specialist expertise in this area without committing to full research training.

Throughout the course you'll develop a range of transferable skills, including data analysis (especially financial data), as well as investigating the motivation, financial practices, and the consequences of international trade.

You will take compulsory modules in Economic Concepts, Financial Econometrics, International Trade, and International Finance. As this programme has a particular focus on the international economy, there are modules specifically designed to give you expert knowledge in this area. These include International Trade, which introduces models of international trade explaining patterns in global flows of goods, and International Finance, which examines finance from both an investor’s and corporate perspective.

Towards the end of your 12 months with us, you'll write a dissertation on an area of the discipline that supports your own interests and future goals. Throughout the dissertation process, you'll have support and supervision from a member of the School of Economics.

We also offer additional support to help you get the most from your Master’s. This includes an optional, intensive pre-sessional course in the fortnight before your programme begins in September. This course includes an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you will use in your MSc programme. While not compulsory, we strongly recommend you take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
