The MSc International Economics Finance and Development programme focuses on two specific areas, in addition to providing a thorough understanding of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics.
The first area examines the relationship between international trade and international finance and business. The second area centres on financial frictions faced by developing and emerging economies.
You will also cover stabilisation, adjustment and economic liberalisation, and study the principal sources of external finance for developing countries.
Those wishing to work in research and/or policy-making in international organisations and think-tanks focused on development issues will find this programme particularly relevant.
This programme is studied full-time over one academic year. It consists of eight taught modules and a dissertation.
