The M.Sc. in Economic Policy Studies (EPS) programme is a two-year part-time postgraduate programme designed to provide graduates with the skills to apply economic perspectives and approaches to the study of policy issues. There is an in-take of new students every second year; accordingly the next student in-take will be for the academic year commencing September 2014. Staff from the Department of Economics, as well as where appropriate other staff from both within and outside the College, lecture on the programme. The programme's aim is to provide participants with a greater understanding of the economic policy process and the ability to engage confidently in evidence-based economic policy making. It enables graduates to contribute effectively to the processes of economic policy formulation, change and implementation, using various concepts and methods in social science analyses. Policy making in any field requires a range of skills and analytical approaches; while this programme focuses on economic policy and on the economic analysis of other policies, the political economy context, both domestically and internationally, is also explored.

During the two years, students will undertake a number of modules over three ten-week terms and spend the remainder of the second year working on their dissertations. The first teaching term takes place from late September to December and the second from January to April of Year 1. Students undertake four modules in Year 1 as follows: data analysis, modelling and research methods; understanding markets; Irish economic policy issues and context; macroeconomic concepts and issues. The third teaching term takes place form late September to December of Year 2 and in this time students undertake two specialised modules from three possible options; namely economic evaluation, competition and regulation and money and banking. The remainder of Year 2 is focused on completion of the dissertation.

Overview

The MSc Economic and Financial Risk Analysis was launched in response to the changing economic and financial environment. It is designed to provide students with the fundamental concepts and the necessary tools required by the financial sector. Focusing on Financial Risk Analysis, Derivatives, Investments and Econometrics, this programme provides students with the quantitative skills needed by employers and thus opens up a diverse set of career opportunities both within and outside the financial sector. The emphasis is on ‘education’ with graduates encouraged to think for themselves and become proficient in problem solving.

Course Structure

The first year is an intensive and extensive introduction to the world of Economics and Finance. The aim is that by the year-end, students will be at the same level as a graduate of a BA/BBS/BSc graduate in Economics and/or Finance. Students will cover the basic concepts, empirical methods and applications in Investments, Derivatives, International Finance and Econometrics as well as choosing field courses of interest from a range of optional modules.

The second year builds upon this and is structured to be stimulating and challenging. Students take core modules in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics and Financial Economics. Students can also take specialised field modules that may include Financial Risk Analysis, Advanced Derivatives, Empirical Finance, International Finance, Corporate Finance and Market Microstructure. The programme also requires students to undertake a research thesis or a three-month Work Placement during the summer term.

Duration: 2 years Full-Time
