The new MSc in Economics and Finance has been designed to develop postgraduate students who are equipped academically to succeed in an increasingly complicated and challenging global workplace. When you graduate, you will leave as a professional economist, who is equipped for an academic career, but who crucially is also ready to use economic thinking in the world outside academia. Well qualified economists are in demand in government, industry and, obviously commerce.

The professional world our successful graduates are aiming to enter are seeking students that are able to conduct useful research, think critically about that research and apply to complex problems – this ,inter alia, necessitates effective use of modern ICT and the ability to utilise knowledge effectively. Particularly within this field graduates will be expected to show excellent quantitative skills. These students will be assumed to process effective two-way communication skills and be comfortable and effective in self-managed and team environments.
