Masters degrees in Macroeconomics focus on broad measurements of economic trends and performance, studying the function and effect of interest rates, GDP (gross domestic product) and taxation. They train students to model these effectively and to assess their wider impact.
Most programmes are offered as taught MSc degrees, but research programmes and shorter Postgraduate Certificates and Diplomas are also offered.
These courses assess crucial indicators of economic performance, and this means tackling some of the most important issues addressed by Economics as a discipline: from countries’ overall economic development to the prediction of potential financial crises.
As such your Masters will equip you to work in a number of significant roles for Governments, policy makers and global organisations such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Of course, the impact of Macroeconomics filters down into other areas – by its very nature. This means that your qualification will equip you for a range of careers in which a Masters in Economics is useful.
Macroeconomics is also a highly productive field for further postgraduate research at PhD level.
