Masters degrees in Economic Policy allow postgraduates to specialise in the impact of economic analysis and the decisions based upon it by governments and other organisations. Courses combine economic theory with a practical focus.
Most programmes award taught MSc degrees, but research qualifications and shorter Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma courses are available.
Postgraduate courses in Economic Policy may be ideal for Economics graduates looking for a more applied approach to their subject.
You’ll be able to develop an advanced understanding of economic theory, but will also have the chance to explore the uses of economic insight and the difference it can make to people and organisations.
Possible careers include work in governance and public policy, helping people and politicians understand and utilise economic insights. Other opportunities may exist with businesses, charities or other organisations with an interest in decision making informed by economics.
A Masters in Economic Policy also offers excellent preparation for further PhD research in related topics.
