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.
Months of entry
The MSc International Economics Finance and Development programme focuses on two specific areas, in addition to providing a thorough understanding of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics.
The first area examines the relationship between international trade and international finance and business. The second area centres on financial frictions faced by developing and emerging economies.
You will also cover stabilisation, adjustment and economic liberalisation, and study the principal sources of external finance for developing countries.
Those wishing to work in research and/or policy-making in international organisations and think-tanks focused on development issues will find this programme particularly relevant.
