About Economic Geography
Masters degrees in Economic Geography offer advanced study of the location, distribution and spatial organisation of economic activities across the world.
Related subjects include Political Geography and Urban Geography. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Human Geography.
Courses in this area of Human Geography equip you with the skills to develop and implement effective strategies and policy recommendations to make cities and regions more economically viable and sustainable.
Training covers legislation and practices across a range of regional labour markets, including the recruitment and training of employees, relations with suppliers, and innovation policies administered by local governments.
Economic development is a central theme on most courses, training you in current practise such as the planning of industrial zones, the upgrading of city centres, and the attraction of new firms and investments to different regions.
Traditional careers include roles as a consultant or advisor, writing strategic plans for the sustainable development of regions and cities, or helping foreign firms and investors to find a suitable location to undertake business in other countries.
