Degree: MSc in Economics and Business Administration
ECTS credits: 120
Duration: two years

The programme will give you the skills to analyse markets and industries and the economic challenges facing private business, public institutions and the development in countries and regions. It will provide you with important perspectives for understanding an increasingly globalised economy.

Understanding economic mechanisms is vital for the success of business and the design of public policy and this master’s programme offers a thorough and comprehensive education in economic theory and econometrics. You will be equipped to analyse core economic questions such as: What are the effects of the financial crisis? Why are some mergers not profitable? Is taxing wealth a good idea? How fast should oil resources be exploited?

You will learn what motivates and drives decisions for individuals, companies, competitors and authorities - and what determines prices, returns and economic conditions.

SPECIALIST AREAS

The programme provides students with basic analytical skills in macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics.

Macroeconomics: covers areas such as business cycles, inflation and economic growth in a national and global perspective, including monetary and fiscal policy. Microeconomics: focuses on consumer behaviour and strategic interaction between companies in markets with imperfect competition and on how information and uncertainty affect decision-making. Econometrics: applies statistical methods to economic data in order to analyse economic themes with a focus on regression analysis and extensive use of practical lab exercises.

The programme also offers also a range of courses that allow you to focus on subject areas you find particularly interesting, such as:
Behavioural Economics
Industrial Economics
Development Economics
Labour Economics
Resource and Environmental Economics

Research Distinction
In addition we offer methodological courses at advanced level for students who want to elaborate their analytical skills. The advanced courses will qualify for a master's with "Research Distinction". Students who are planning to pursue a PhD are encouraged to select at least two advanced courses.

If your first degree isn’t in economics, or your economics training doesn’t provide sufficient experience for our MSc courses, MA Economics may be for you.

At Essex we push the frontiers of accepted wisdom, critically examining the decisions of individuals, the strategies of firms, and the policies of governments to understand and challenge the standard paradigms of economics. On this course, you build a thorough understanding of the key areas of economics through studying these topics:
-Strategic behaviour, public choice, fiscal and monetary policy, theories of growth
-Modern theory and methods with application to policy
-Formal economic arguments, and the role of equilibrium
-Econometric methods

We teach you the essentials of micro- and macroeconomics and econometric methods. You also have the option to explore a set of selected topics in economics to hone your skills, such as Management Economics and Market Analysis, International Trade and Financial Economics.

For your dissertation, you apply these skills to create an original piece of research. If you need it, we support you in maths through pre-sessional and co-curricular support. If you’d like to develop your knowledge further at Essex, we offer a range of other advanced courses inside and outside economics that complement this course.

We are top 5 in the UK for research, with over 90% of our research rated as “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”. Much of this world-class research is related to policy, and we have research strengths in a number of areas.

The quality of our work is reflected in our stream of publications in high-profile academic journals, including American Economic Review, Econometrica, and Review of Economic Studies.

Professional accreditation

The MSc and MA in Banking and Finance degree courses at Bangor offer you a unique opportunity to study advanced theory and practice relating to financial services, and to develop an appreciation of the causes and significance of current developments in this vitally important and dynamic sector of the economy.

Issues you will tackle as part of your MA/MSc Banking and Finance degree programme include:

What determines the structure, performance and efficiency of banking and financial markets?
Why do banks and financial intermediaries exist?
What are the main theories of the banking firm?
How relevant are financial intermediaries in a world of increasing securitization and with the evolution of virtual banking?
How do banks optimally allocate capital?
Does bank regulation increase or decrease risks?
How do we measure the risks undertaken by banks?
Can regulators reduce the likelihood of systemic (system-wide) risk?
What are the relationships between risk and return governing investment in company shares and other derivative instruments?

How do banks manage their business so as to maintain customer relationships, improve operational efficiency and add shareholder value?

With these needs in mind, the MSc and MA Banking and Finance programmes at Bangor are designed to develop participants' existing skills through a scheme of specialist advanced study. An important objective is to provide participants with relevant analytical training, so that they are familiar with the latest theoretical and practical developments relating to banking, finance and capital markets. These programmes provide a coherent theoretical framework for the various subject areas, but the emphasis throughout is on advanced practical application of financial techniques in a real-world setting.

The MSc degree may be more suitable for applicants with some previous background in mathematics, statistics or econometrics, while the MA degree is more suitable for applicants who prefer to adopt a predominantly non-quantitative approach to their studies. However, both degrees include a compulsory module in Research Methods, which includes coverage of both quantitative and non-quantitative research techniques.
