The Course

The (MSc) International Business Economics is designed for students that have a background in business and management studies. The aim is to provide an opportunity to expand knowledge of the international business environment using economic analysis in a practical way. As such, the programme looks to provide a grounding in aspects of quantitative methods, business economics, the international business environment, the multinational enterprise and the international macro financial environment.

The combination of international business and applied economics on this programme is designed to provides an overview of the international world of business and a solid foundation for a career in a variety of organisations operating internationally, or as an applied/business economist. This programme is designed for those without a strong Economics or Econometrics background and is both quantitative and research orientated in nature.
