Course summary

Economies across the world are changing at a rapid rate. This course will teach you the methods used for analysing economic data and equip you with the mathematical and statistical skills to advise businesses on economic policies, predict patterns of behaviour and reduce the risks involved in financial decision making.

By combining the study of economics with the mathematical and statistically focused area of econometrics, you will learn about current issues in modern-day economic forecasting and analysis whilst developing the analytical, problem-solving and quantitative skills to understand and interpret economic indicators.

Assessment

Assessment varies from module to module and includes a combination of exams, written essays and project work.
