The Graduate Diploma in Economics provides a core training in Economics for those who do not already have an extensive recent economics background. The course is offered over 10 months, full-time.
Graduates of the programme who successfully secure a good pass may progress to Master's level study on either our Applied Training Programme or our Academic and Professional Programme.
The Applied Training Programme should appeal to students who wish to pursue a career in the areas of finance, management, international business, international relations and the mass media.
The Academic and Professional Programme is designed to provide intensive research-led training in advanced economic theory, econometrics and research methods. This route is suitable for those who aim to gain employment as professional economists in government, financial institutions, business, commerce, industry, international agencies and other similar organisations.
