Econometrics - MSc


Course Description

-Are you looking for a simple way to convert your quantitative undergraduate degree into econometrics, taking classes in statistics, mathematics and at the Alliance Manchester Business School?
-Are you keen to train in modern econometrics and pursue a career as a professional econometrician?
-Do you have your sights set on further studies in econometrics at MRes or PhD level and exposure to research-led econometric theory and methods?

This course provides advanced instruction and rigorous training in econometric theories and the relevant methods of empirical research.

Although similar to the MSc in Economics and Econometrics, this course differs in that macroeconomic and microeconomic theory are not compulsory course units, but units in time-series econometrics and micro-econometrics are compulsory.

By the end of the programme, you should be able to understand and apply the basic principles behind the theory of econometrics, and apply these techniques to real data using packages such as Stata and PC Give, and employ more advanced computational tools using Gauss.

Teaching and learning

Part-time students complete the full-time programme over two years. There are NO evening or weekend course units available on the part-time programme.

You must first check the schedule of the compulsory modules and then select your optional modules to suit your requirements.

Coursework and assessment

The Master of Econometrics is awarded by the University on the recommendation of the Board of the School of Social Sciences, Graduate Office. The degree may be awarded with Pass, Merit or Distinction.

Students who fail a Master's degree may be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma if they satisfy the appropriate conventions. Once a diploma has been awarded in these circumstances, a student cannot re-enrol on a Master's degree.

In Econometrics, there are three standard methods of assessment: (i) written examination only; (ii) written examination, with a weight of two thirds, plus an essay or project, with a weight of one third; (iii) project. Examinations are usually 2 hours in length.

Career opportunities

Former students have found employment as economists for the Bank of England, large financial institutions, banks, etc. Others have proceeded to a PhD and followed a career in academia.
