This course is ideal if you would like to pursue a career in which the application of econometric methods plays a major role – such as market research, evidence-based planning and policy advice, or financial modelling and forecasting – or if you would like to enter a PhD programme. It focuses on the application potential of a broad range of econometric techniques and the effective communication of empirical results, rather than the statistical theory upon which econometric methods depend.
What will you study?
You will study core econometric concepts and methods alongside modules that focus on different application contexts, such as time-series analysis, microeconometrics, financial econometrics, macroeconometric modelling and business forecasting. You will also develop your computing and communication skills. You will then write a dissertation to show evidence of your knowledge, skills and abilities to undertake complex, self-managed tasks with tight deadlines.
Please note that this is an indicative list of modules and is not intended as a definitive list.
- Econometrics - Econometrics Dissertation - Macroeconomic Modelling and Forecasting - Topics in Applied Econometrics - Time-Series and Financial Forecasting Methods
To include: essays, small research reports, practical exercises, formal examinations, and final dissertation.
We expect students to have a second class degree or above, or equivalent, in economics or another area where quantitative methods or economics have been studied to an appropriate standard. Students with extensive relevant professional experience will also be considered.
