The MSc Economics offers students rigorous training in economic theory and the analytical methods needed to answer the pressing economic questions facing the world.

With a strong emphasis on technical skills, the programme teaches students how to model economic issues, conduct rigorous empirical analyses, and discuss their work with diverse audiences.

The modules in this programme cover a wide range of fields within economics, allowing students to study many of the current issues facing the world economy. These include Brexit and rising trade barriers, money and banking, economic inequality, global climate change, and health and social care.


Programme Overview

The MSc Economics is embedded in the rapidly growing Economics group at the Management School. An important feature of our programme is the course modules are taught by world-class researchers who have published in the leading academic journals on the very topics they teach. Many of our faculty also maintain close relationships with businesses, governments, and non-profit organisations, connecting their research to real-world impact.

The MSc Economics is an excellent opportunity for students who wish to pursue a career requiring a sophisticated understanding of the economy and acquired state-of-the-art analytical skills, such as in global industry, banking and finance, or government organisations. It is also well suited for students who wish to continue a professional research career, for instance working within international organisations or research institutes.
