MSc in Economics


Course Description

Aims of the programme

The programme is intended for students who wish to acquire graduate-level skills in economic analysis and relevant quantitative techniques. It is designed for students who are embarked on, or intending to embark upon, careers in research agencies, consultancy firms, economic advisory services of governments, banks or international agencies, or as university teachers or researchers.
The programme provides a sound training in best practice methods of mainstream economics, combined with the opportunities of studying optional areas in depth, and of gradual transition to research.

Special Features

*High quality: Over the last 30 years the programme has constantly received the highest accreditation from the Economic and Social Research Council.
*Emphasis on problem-solving and practice in both economic theory, applied economics and econometrics. This provides a structured and phased transition from coursework to independent research.
*Opportunity to study areas of application at the frontiers of economics such as experimental economics, regulatory policy, industrial organisation, intertemporal and international macroeconomics, financial markets, and labour economics.
