Course content

The MSc Behavioural Economics and Finance combines the intellectual rigour of a standard MSc in Economics with the insights stemming from the intersection of economics, social psychology and cognition.

This programme provides the quantitative training of standard microeconomics, with a thorough grounding in the research methodology behind experimental economics, whether applied to laboratory studies, or to field experiments. It also provides the statistical training required to analyse and interpret data from experiments.

The specialised courses in individual choice, behavioural economics and experimental courses will take students from the standard models that underpin behavioural sciences to the current developments in the field, whether applied to labour economics, behavioural finance or behavioural public finance, as well as policy applications, including the analysis of tax compliance by the HM Treasury or savings decisions by workers in the United States.
