Course summary

This two-year programme provides rigorous mathematical training in modern economics. It will equip you with a thorough understanding of the research tools and techniques, both theoretical and empirical, required for the analysis of economics.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • This MRes is distinctive in its two-year programme structure and will provide you with comprehensive foundational training in economics. It is modelled on the established tradition of US universities providing thorough PhD preparation.
  • It is ideally suited if you have a quantitative background, but limited exposure to economic ideas, or if you have a background in economics and are interested in developing this knowledge in line with the current standards of economics research.
  • It includes extensive training in qualitative research methods of mathematics, statistics and econometrics, as well as the mathematical treatment of the core areas of economics.
  • Our staff members are research-active economists, who publish regularly in leading professional journals such as Econometrica, Theoretical Economics, the Economic Journal, and the Review of Economic Dynamics.
  • You will have the opportunity to join the Economics Group, which is a vibrant postgraduate research community that runs a series of seminars dedicated to different subjects within economics. The group also hosts workshops and conferences, and attracts international research visitors of world-leading quality.

CAREER PROSPECTS

This programme provides you with thorough preparation for PhD research, and completion at a sufficiently high level guarantees admission into the Glasgow Economics PhD programme. You will also be extremely well-positioned to be accepted for PhD study in other universities. Upon completion of the programme you will be equipped to pursue careers in academia, government, industry or consulting. We have a dedicated careers and employability team who provide 1-2-1 support and advice, group workshops, employer events on campus and networking opportunities throughout the year to help you with your career prospects.
