Course summary

This degree, aimed at ambitious and mathematically capable students, provides a thorough grounding in economic theory, along with the technical tools, mathematics and statistics to assist in mastering the theory. Our highly regarded department offers a stimulating learning environment in central London, close to one of the world's largest financial centres.

Your learning

The cornerstone of each module is a lecture series. Through demonstration classes and small-group work you will learn how to put economic models together, how to analyse data, how to undertake quantitative analysis, and, potentially, formulate your own model to address a new problem. In the later parts of the programme, there is an increased emphasis on collaborative work and group presentations.

Assessment

Your progress is monitored throughout the year on a module-by-module basis, which will provide feedback aimed at improving your understanding and technique. You will be assessed by year-end written examinations and other forms of term-time assessment including, for example, multiple-choice quizzes, in-course essays and research project work.

Careers

Many useful skills can be gained through the study of economics, for example: finding solutions to real-world problems, data analytics skills, mathematical skills and an enhanced understanding of contemporary political and economic events. About one-third of our graduates move directly into graduate study, including MScs in Economics, MBA programmes and conversion courses in computing and law. Students have also proceeded to doctoral programmes including those in major US economics departments such as Columbia, Yale and Chicago.

Graduates enter employment in a range of sectors including policy-making, management and banking.
