Course content

The MSc Economics is for you if you want to acquire advanced skills to set you apart in your chosen career, be that as a business analyst, somebody working for global institutions such as the World Bank, the UN, the OECD or NGOs or in government departments in a range of countries. Those skills will also enable you to make a career in market or country analysis.

Course content

The course has a strong applied focus and provides you with advanced training in the core areas of economics, while also exploring other economic approaches and enabling you to specialise according to your interests. The course is comprised of three compulsory modules: Advanced Microeconomics, Advanced Macroeconomics and Econometrics; as well as a choice of elective modules in popular areas including: Alternative Economic Perspectives, International Economics, Political Economy of Development, Investment Analysis, and International Banking and Financial Markets.

A further module, Dissertation and Research Methods, supports the completion of a dissertation and is designed to give you the necessary research and project management skills to undertake both your dissertation and the kinds of economic analysis which are likely be required by a range of employers.

The course culminates in the submission of a sustained piece of independent economic research which will be supported by an academic supervisor.
