Our MSc Economics centres on advanced level economics and econometrics, engaging with cutting-edge research within the discipline. It offers you unrivalled coverage of the competing perspectives in economics, including heterodox perspectives.
You will gain unique insight into the pressing economic issues of our times, from the microeconomics of firms and markets to the macroeconomics of the global economy. On successful completion of this Masters, you will have advanced theoretical and quantitative skills, highly sought after by employers.
This course is designed for students with some prior knowledge of economics and is recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). You may be able to achieve ESRC funding for the course if you have already negotiated a PhD place - please visit our PhD pages for more information: http://business.leeds.ac.uk/phd/
Former economics students have gone on to highly successful careers as government advisors, think-tank researchers and quantitative analysts. Your qualification will also be valued by large businesses and organisations.
The MSc Economics is also an excellent foundation for further postgraduate research and study.
