Course content

Why study the Master of Development Economics?

This program is strongly differentiated from typical development-related programs in that it has a strong emphasis on quantitative techniques in econometrics, benefit/cost analysis and operations research. It is also unique in offering students training in how to model the economy as a complex, evolving system, which is highly appropriate in understanding economic development. Graduates will have training in economic modelling and statistical techniques, in addition to the key analytical frameworks in the field of economic development. Given the strong quantitative emphasis of the program, care has been taken to offer a range of electives of a less quantitative nature, including courses offered by four other Schools. The elective list is extensive enough to allow study in fields such as: health; environment; innovation and competition policy; international economics and politics; quantitative techniques for project appraisals.
