Entry requirements

For admission to the Masters programme applicants should possess a good honours degree from a recognised higher education institution, with a minimum 2:2 classification in ecoomics or a social sciences discipline. Students whose qualifications in economics are deemed to be below the standard required for admission into a Masters scheme - perhaps because their first degree was in a different subject - may be offered admission to the Graduate Diploma programme.

Course content

The MSc International Business Economics degree will enable economics graduates to develop their knowledge and understanding of international business (transnational production, finance, etc), and graduates of business related disciplines to gain greater depth in their understanding of the broader economic context of the international economy.

The degree programme will develop your skills in statistical analysis, and also provides the opportunity for investigation into the motivation, financial practices, and consequences of international business. This qualification should be particularly attractive to employers who are seeking to recruit graduates with analytical and business awareness skills in an international context.

This is one of our Applied Training Programmes and is designed to provide training in new and vocationally attractive skills in Economics. It is appropriate for graduates in Economics who wish to develop specialist expertise without committing to the full research-led training Academic and Professional programme. It is also appropriate for those with a limited Economics background but with an undergraduate degree or equivalent experience in the applied area. These courses should appeal to students who wish to pursue a career in the areas of finance, management, international business, international relations and the mass media.
