Course summary

Why choose this course?

This MA focuses on the problems of economic development in the changing context of the international economic relationship. It will also provide a thorough grounding in macroeconomic and microeconomic analysis, in applied econometrics, in a range of approaches for dealing with economic policy issues, and in the long-term historical and conceptual context of contemporary debates in economics. Lectures are supplemented by seminars, giving an opportunity for regular feedback and discussion. The course aims to develop your skills in a direction that matches what many employers expect when hiring economists.

What you will study

You will study core aspects of macro- and microeconomic theory, applied econometrics and economic policy. You will also gain in-depth knowledge of the theory and contemporary issues surrounding international trade, and of the problems that developing countries confront in dealing with the international economic environment. Such problems include trade and development, the effect of foreign direct investment (FDI) on development, and the significance of technology transfer. The degree culminates in your dissertation, in which you will have the opportunity to carry out in-depth research into a contemporary issue dealing with developing countries, international trade and FDI. You will work with a member of the Economics department who specialises in and pursues research in this area.

Teaching and assessment

Assessment typically comprises exams (eg test or exam), practical (eg presentations, performance) and coursework (eg essays, reports, self-assessment, portfolios, dissertation).

After you graduate

This Development and International Economics MA can lead to a range of career opportunities in the public and private sectors. These can include national and international government agencies and non-governmental organisations, as well as commercial organisations in sectors ranging from the City of London to trading and manufacturing businesses of all sizes.
