Highlights

  • In the 2014 UK Research Excellence Framework exercise, the School was ranked joint tenth in the UK and second in Scotland on the basis of the quality of its research publications, with over 80% of the research publications being classified as internationally excellent or world-leading.
  • Small group teaching allows a high level of student-teacher interaction, encouraging a warm and friendly learning environment.
  • The programme focus is to provide a self-contained, rigorous but relevant learning experience that prepares you either to start employment at a senior level in a wide variety of economics or finance-related activities, or to pursue further research. 
  • Advanced training in essential elements of an Economics Masters degree (macroeconomics or microeconomics) is combined with essential training in finance (investment analysis, corporate finance), supplemented by a wide variety of applications.
  • The programme aims to prepare students for jobs at a senior level in a wide range of areas: economics, finance, commerce, insurance, academia, diplomatic service and banking.

Teaching format

The programme consists of traditional lectures, as well as tutorials, seminars and computer lab work in small groups. Courses are assessed both continuously and with end-of-semester exams. 

You will also complete a 15,000-word dissertation in an area of your choice on a topic relevant and appropriate to the MSc. 

Every MSc student is assigned an adviser at the beginning of the year. Your adviser will provide you with individual guidance on module choice and academic conduct.
