About the MSc programmes

This MSc Economics programme is intended to equip you with the main tools of the professional economist, whether you intend to work in government, central banking, international organisations or private sector firms such as economic consultancies.

The advanced and technically rigorous nature of the programme also serves as an excellent foundation for PhD programmes and other research-focused roles.

The one-year route is for students with a strong undergraduate degree in economics and a solid quantitative background, while the two-year route is designed for students who have a sound quantitative background but lack the necessary knowledge in quantitative techniques for the one-year route.

The degree concentrates on the core elements of economic theory and econometrics. The extensive use of mathematics is intended as a tool in order to facilitate analysis, with the primary objective of the programme being the provision of a formal training in, and in-depth understanding of, core economic models.

This programme is offered by the Department of Economics, which has expertise across the spectrum of mainstream economics. It has a long-standing commitment to remaining at the cutting edge of developments in the field, which has ensured its lasting impact on the discipline as whole. Almost every major intellectual development within Economics over the past fifty years has had input from members of the department, which counts ten Nobel Prize winners among its current and former staff and students.
