About the MSc programmes

The MSc Econometrics and Mathematical Economics is a technically rigorous programme designed to meet the needs of those who have a strong quantitative background wishing to study economics. It is aimed at mathematicians, statisticians, physical scientists and engineers, as well as graduate economists.

The programme begins with a compulsory introductory course designed to provide you with the essential foundations in macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics. This will prepare you for the advanced level of the core teaching programme.

You will then take courses in Advanced Microeconomics, Advanced Macroeconomics and Econometric Analysis, in addition to a fourth elective course. Options are diverse, and include courses as varied as International Economics, Monetary Economics, Corporate Finance, Asset Markets, Portfolio Management and Stochastic Processes.

This programme will be ideal if you would like to pursue a career as an economist or econometrician, in a variety of industries. Many graduates also choose to proceed to PhD study.

The technical level of the material covered is perhaps higher than for any other master's degree in the area, and the programme has a long-standing international reputation, with many distinguished economists and econometricians among its graduates.
