Course content

The University of Liverpool Management School is one of an elite group of institutions worldwide to be AACSB-Accredited.

MSc Economics offers advanced and rigorous training in modern Economics and Econometrics. It places much emphasis on advanced theories and techniques, as well as their applications in addressing current economic and financial issues.

The MSc Economics is particularly suited for those students who intend to continue their studies on to PhD level, within the fields of Economics or Financial Economics, potentially pursuing a career in academia. It is also an excellent opportunity for students who may wish to pursue a professional research career, for instance working within international organisations or research institutes. Graduates will also be ready for a career in industry after having developed sophisticated understanding of the economy and acquired state-of-the-art analytical skills.

The programme provides students with the option of two pathways: the ‘Economics Pathway’ and the ‘Financial Economics Pathway’. Under each pathway, modules have been introduced to provide students with advanced training in economics or financial economics.

Recent dissertation titles have included: `Money Growth and Inflation: Evidence from the UK’, ‘An Examination of the Strength of US Dollar’, ‘Aumann Structures and Agreeing to Disagree’ and ‘The Theory of Values in Cooperative Games’.
