The MA economics course is designed to meet the growing demand for those students who seek an applied economics degree that combines a solid training in microeconomic and macroeconomic principles with quantitative methods and research informed applied economics units. This course is clearly different from the existing MSc Economics courses at Manchester because of its focus on mainstream but less theoretical units that need to be completed.
Students on the MA economics will take compulsory courses in both Microeconomics and Macroeconomics; they will further advance their quantitative skills and techniques in the core courses in Introduction to Econometrics, Mathematical Methods in Economic Analysis and Further Econometrics; and, as part of their MA research project, they will focus on applied and/or policy-oriented research of economic data as relevant to policy makers and economics professionals. The programme is focused on students interested in a career straight after the MA and not on those students interested in postgraduate research, as the latter group will find our MSc Economics more appropriate.
