Course content

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

MSc Economics places much emphasis on the area of mathematics and has been designed particularly 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. The programme is also an excellent opportunity for students who may wish to pursue a more professional mode of career development, for instance working within international organisations or research institutes.

The majority of current students have first-class undergraduate degrees in Economics, Finance or Mathematics from Russell Group universities. The programme also attracts students from other internationally renowned universities.

The programme provides students with the option of two pathways: the ‘Financial Economics Pathway’ and the ‘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: ‘A Theoretical Exposition of the Relationship Between Fuel Taxation and Speed Limits: Lessons for UK Motorways’ and ‘Money Growth and Inflation: Evidence from the UK’.
