Applicants should normally hold a minimum of a Bachelors degree (a UK 2.2) in economics or an equivalent qualification. Applicants without a Bachelors degree in economics should normally hold a 2:1 or equivalent qualification.
Each applicant is assessed on their own merit. Applicants who have a joint degree in economics and a related discipline, or who have had a wide involvement in the field of their desired specialisation will be considered, as may graduates in engineering, mathematics and science.

Our MSc Business Economics and Finance programme will give you a thorough education in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics combined with an understanding of two particular specialty areas.
Firstly, modules in Economics of the Firm and Human Resource Economics examine the importance of business issues in the study of economics, and modern developments in personnel economics.
The second area of specialisation focuses on a combination of the theory of finance and financial econometrics.
The former will give you a thorough grounding in modern finance theory, while the latter is directed towards the principal econometric techniques that are applied to financial data.
