Economics and Investment Banking (MSc)

Course Description

Course description

Our MSc Economics degrees build on your undergraduate knowledge, providing you with the theoretical understanding and practical skills to progress your career in a challenging and rewarding role. Throughout, you will learn from a wide range of business, management and social perspectives.

In your first semester you will work with the latest economic theories and the methods of analysis based on them, including the use of quantitative data. You will use these methods to contribute to resolving challenging issues in today's global business and management environment.

In your second semester, we will give you the opportunity to deepen this core knowledge of Economics or take specialist modules in Investment Banking.

Finally, in your third semester, you will choose one of our major experience projects, applying your skills in a real-world setting, conducting a piece of independent research or gaining an international perspective by working overseas.

Work placement

You can choose to add a year's work placement, making your master's a two-year course. It's a great way to put your learning into practice and gain valuable real-world experience to boost your career.

We have extensive links with corporate partners who can offer placements, so we can help you find something perfect. If you undertake a placement, you must take up the Business Research Project in Semester Three.

Study and support

Teaching and learning methods are centred around interactive workshops which are highly participative in nature and will employ case studies, discussions, business simulations and group activities.

Interactivity is key to our teaching and we are committed to providing courses that adopt teaching methods that are appropriate to the student cohort and the specific modules.

We ensure that support and guidance is in place, especially during the early stages of the course and assessment periods, to help you become comfortable with operating in a student-centred learning environment.

Assessment methods

A range of assessment methods are used across the course, the choice of which reflects the needs and demands of the different types of module. Some modules will assess the ability to work collaboratively in a team and others will assess individual capability. Types of assessment will range from examinations to group presentations including essays, reports, financial analyses, literature reviews and research-based projects.

The interactive nature of the taught sessions offers opportunities to gain feedback on your performance before being formally assessed and increasing use is made of eLearning to further support the feedback process.


All our courses begin with a comprehensive development programme that will help you prepare for your studies and develop key academic and transferable skills. A key feature is a short residential team-building course, normally in the Peak District.

You will also have opportunities to meet members of the teaching team and other postgraduate students, receive detailed programme information, and gain valuable support and guidance from the library, careers service, international office and Student Support Services.
