Course content

The MSc in Applied Economics and Financial Economics equips students with a robust knowledge of the techniques used to analyse financial and monetary issues and the ability to apply them.

The programme allows students to study core courses in micro and macroeconomics as a foundation for two compulsory monetary and financial modules which are central to this masters degree. In addition, there are a range of options including finance, financial econometrics, behavioural finance, advanced macroeconomics and international macroeconomics.

Theoretical knowledge is underpinned with training in the collection, use, presentation and interpretation of economic data, including time-series, cross-section, financial econometrics and panel data. To complement this, students learn how to use econometric software packages to assist with data analysis, and acquire the skills to collect and construct new data sources.
