Course content

This course allows you to study economics at an in-depth postgraduate level. You will study a sequence of economics modules that is widely recognised as standard graduate training. It will provide you with the foundations for either a career as an economist or to prepare for PhD study.

The course will provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate your acquired skills by applying them to a research topic of your choice. You will gain a strong command of analytical techniques, computing and research methods for problem-solving, and develop your critical analysis of economic theories and debates. The course will equip you with advanced research and communication skills, both written and oral.

To help you develop the skills that leading employers ask for, and let you see how traders work, we have 12 Bloomberg terminals in the University Library.

This MSc is designed for students who have a strong background in economics. It is available as a one year full-time, or two years part-time campus-based course.
