Finance and Economics (Research) MA

Course Description

Course Overview

Our Finance and Economics (Research) MA is designed to provide you with the essential skills, as well as an advanced knowledge and understanding of economics and finance, to proceed to doctoral research. It forms part of the 1+3 (Master's plus PhD) scheme under the North East Doctoral Training Centre.

Through the course you will develop: thorough understanding of social science theory, approaches and research methods; understanding of research methods specific to finance and/or economics; knowledge of advanced scholarship and practice in areas within finance/economics as well as a broader awareness of cutting edge research across the social sciences; skills in data collection and analysis; specialist analytical and problem solving skills.

The research training provided will also be valuable for many non-academic careers in research institutions or other knowledge-intensive environments.

Throughout the academic year, the School holds a number of events on campus to which all students are invited. Events are topical, and provide great opportunities for you to network with national and multinational organisations, alumni and peers.
