From start-ups to multinationals, the MSc Business Economics course is about applying economics to business – and London is the ideal place to do it.

Who is it for?

The MSc Business Economics / International Business Economics is for students who want to apply economics to real-world issues. From transfer pricing, to the complexity of financial markets and the pros and cons of EU membership, you will need to be strong at statistics and quantitative methods to get to grips with the material that makes up the core modules. The MSc is designed to give you the tools to apply your knowledge, so we expect you to be downloading the free FT app and getting on top of current issues from the second you start.

Objectives

On the MSc Business Economics / International Business Economics you won’t be deriving equations. Instead, we use them to apply economics to current business issues.

The programme has been designed to equip students with a wealth of resources combining data banks from City’s Cass Business School and School of Arts and Social Sciences. This means you have access to everything from Datastream, Bloomberg and Bankscope, to Morning Star and Orbis.

MSc Business Economics / International Business Economics maximises City’s central London location. With high-profile guest lecturers such as Jim O’Neill, former Chief Economist from Goldman Sachs, you gain insight straight from the City studying in the heart of "the world's biggest financial centre" (Economist, 2012.)

Teaching and learning

The course is taught through a series of lectures (which are also available as online resources), seminars, student presentations and interactive group work. Computer laboratory teaching gives you practical experience using software packages to develop statistical and econometric skills that are formatively assessed by computer-based exercises.

You also undertake a research project or economics literature survey on a subject that is of interest to you. This must cover a current topic that is within the remit of Business Economics or International Business Economics.

Assessment

You are assessed by coursework and examination. Your overall degree result is based on your performance in the taught modules and the dissertation.

Modules

The core content is covered in the first term, making this a programme with a lot of choice. There is an economics and econometrics focus, but you also can study topics including the economics of micro-finance, e-commerce, asset pricing and the history of economic thought.

If you choose to study MSc International Business Economics you will need to study the International Business Economics elective in the second term, and your research project has to cover more than one country. So, for example, you could not focus on a single-country subject such as privatisation in the UK. For a detailed module breakdown, see the website: http://www.city.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/business-economics-international-business-economics/2017

Career prospects

When it comes to employer recognition, City is well established. City has become synonymous with quality and the Government Economic Service regularly recruits postgraduate students from this programme. There is also a range of career service events across the School of Arts and Social Sciences and Cass Business School, which you can attend throughout the programme.

-Undertake empirical investigations in development economics, using appropriate quantitative methods.

Academic facilities

You will benefit from City's London location, and our proximity to the centres of decision-making in development economics. (We are six tube stops away from the Department for International Development, for example.).

Teaching and learning

The Development Economics MSc course is designed to be flexible in the range of teaching methods used. You learn through a mixture of lecturing, discussions, analysis of case studies, student presentations and particularly for the quantitative elements of the course, interactive computer-based exercises. You are encouraged to participate actively in the classes.

The taught modules usually run for a term and have three hours of teaching each week. This time may include workshops and tutorials as well as lectures.

Outside your timetabled hours you have access to City’s library and computing facilities for independent study. Your independent study will include reading recommended books and papers, and “reading around” the field to develop a deeper understanding.

In your third term we organise for experts from outside City to come in and present current research on both methodological and applied topics.

For the dissertation or literature survey, each student is allocated a supervisor, who will guide you in your research and writing for this module. We also offer pre-sessional induction courses covering topics such as probability, microeconomics and the Stata software.

Assessment

For each taught module in the Department of Economics, you are assessed through a combination of coursework and one final examination. For most modules the coursework contributes 30% of the overall mark and the examination contributes 70%. The nature of the coursework which the lecturer assigns varies according to the module, for example essays, presentations or computer-based data analysis and calculations. Modules taught in the Department of International Politics are usually assessed solely by coursework.

Overall assessment is based on your performance in the taught modules and a dissertation or literature survey. Students require 180 credits to pass the MSc. The weighting of each module within the overall mark is determined by the credit value assigned to that module.

The 21st century calls for graduates with an interdisciplinary training and problem-solving competence in the fields of ecology, energy, resources etc. Read more
The 21st century calls for graduates with an interdisciplinary training and problem-solving competence in the fields of ecology, energy, resources etc. Process engineering, for example, with such fields as environmental- and energy engineering, is now seen as one of the key disciplines. It deals with the engineering required for a wide range of processes and the transformation of materials, in which raw materials are converted in a series of unit operations into salable intermediate and final products.

One focus of training within the discipline relates to the development and application of various environmental and energy technologies. Both environmental- and energy engineering are classified as green technologies, which have developed at an above-average rate in the last few years. That is due to growing social awareness for sustainability and the finite nature of our resources on the one hand and legal constraints on the other. The latter in particular call for innovative processes and technologies in response to today’s challenges. The Master program in Environmental, Process & Energy Engineering is designed to communicate the knowledge, methodology and problem-solving competence needed to tackle a very wide range of engineering problems in the above mentioned fields. With its commitment to bridge-building between the academic and the business worlds, Management Center Innsbruck also provides essential teaching in the increasingly important horizontal disciplines of law and economics, and the skills needed for today’s labor market.

Major Energy Engineering

In the light of dwindling energy resources and volatile energy prices, energy engineering has become an integral economic factor with enormous potential for growth, especially in such fields as energy generation from non-fossil primary energy sources, energy distribution and energy savings. MCI graduates with a specialization in Energy Engineering typically deal with a wide variety of processes, from conventional power plant engineering to the conversion of energy carriers and their various precursors, and decentral energy supply systems. The major in Energy Engineering caters for these market requirements by communicating the relevant knowledge and skills with a combination of in-depth teaching and practical applicability.

Given their interdisciplinary training and the program’s strong practical orientation, graduates are particularly well qualified to work as engineers at the interface with business and management with special reference to the following areas:

Energy trading, energy management & natural resources
Renewable energies
Glass industry
Oil industry
Consulting engineers, consulting & engineering
Paper and paper products
Chemicals
Gas and heating supply industries

The HKUST MSc / Postgraduate Diploma in Environmental Engineering and Management programs are designed for those who wish to strengthen their environmental engineering knowledge and to well-prepare themselves for advanced engineering practices with management responsibilities.

The programs not only offer advanced environmental engineering and management courses beyond undergraduate-level for part-time and full-time students but also enable students to take several electives from other related programs.

Program Objectives

In Hong Kong, as in other densely-populated cities, environmental issues such as the deterioration of air and water quality, and increased constraints on solid waste management, have posed great challenges to environmental engineers.

In recent years, rapid technological advances as well as the availability of more and more well-trained personnel in the environmental engineering field have led to a stronger demand for advanced studies at the PG level in environmental engineering. The former factor means more people in the field now feel the need to keep themselves updated on the latest technologies available for solving environmental issues. The latter factor means environmental engineers now feel greater pressure to enhance their professional competency and qualification in order to stay competitive and remain occupationally mobile.

With the above background, the Postgraduate Diploma (PGD) and Master of Science (MSc) programs in Environmental Engineering and Management are meant to meet the needs of practicing engineers who may be engaged in the design, commissioning and management of environmental facilities and infrastructure systems.

Jointly offered by the Departments of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, the programs are designed for those who wish to strengthen their environmental engineering and management knowledge and to well-prepare themselves for advanced engineering practices with management responsibilities. The programs not only offer advanced environmental engineering and management courses beyond undergraduate-level for part-time and full-time students but also enable students to take several electives from other related programs.
