You will gain the fundamental tools of a professional economist and undergo rigorous training on the MSc Economics.
This course is designed to equip you with the fundamental tools of a professional economist, giving you the ability to assess a wide range of theoretical, empirical or policy economic issues.
Your training incorporates interactive learning, for example in the application of software to research in the core areas of economics. The course gives you the option for specialisation in classes that are relatively small in size to allow for active interaction. You also have the opportunity of doing a project with an external organisation.
Your studies take you, in a systematic way, from micro-principles of economic behaviour to macro-outcomes of national and global importance, combining methodological, theoretical and applied issues of prime relevance to the study and practice of economics and economic policy.
Specialise by choosing from a range of optional modules, such as in international business, the economics of development, the economics of financial markets, advanced macroeconomics and finance, and the economics of public policy.
