Course summary

Course Overview

The world needs people who can address global challenges by analysing problems and finding solutions. This intellectually demanding and stimulating Masters programme equips you with the tools to achieve this, and pursue an analytic career in Economics or rake the next step towards a PhD.

It is designed for those who have already studied Economics and wish to deepen their knowledge. You will join a select group of talented students, and our tailored learning experience allows you to tap into the wealth of expertise available in one of the UK’s largest faculties. This includes intensive support from a supervisor closely aligned to your dissertation’s subject matter.

We have an outstanding international research reputation in game theory, industrial organisation, econometrics, applied microeconomics, empirical macroeconomics, labour economics, and the economics of education. You will be invited to special guest lectures, research events, our weekly seminar series, and our annual workshops and conferences on subjects such as game theory and macroeconomics.

Our three-block programme is made up of compulsory modules, your dissertation and optional modules which play to your strengths. Unlike some other Masters programmes, we will teach you how to research, read critically, write academically and present your results.

You will develop rigorous training in economic theory and methods, which are extremely marketable. Our graduates often secure successful positions in consulting companies, research centres, government departments, international agencies, or in the financial sector.

The programme is also excellent preparation for a PhD. We can support you by helping secure scholarships and with writing your research proposal.
