Course summary

This course focuses on international economics, while providing a solid basis in the use of analytic and quantitative methods in examining economic issues.

The International Economics MSc is influenced by the work of the Nottingham Centre for Research on Globalisation and Economic Policy (GEP), which is one of the leading European research groups studying the causes and consequences of globalisation. Its academics have advised the Treasury, the World Bank and the World Trade Organization.

Our research-led approach to teaching guarantees an exciting and challenging experience, providing the skills you need to progress as a professional economist or academic researcher.

This course is designed to provide research training at the level required to progress to a PhD programme. Through specialised modules in international macroeconomics and international trade theory, you will be taught to apply and develop your analytic and quantitative skills developed in the core courses, and to take further options in areas that will strengthen those skills for examining international economic issues.

At the end of the course, you will be able to read and understand current and classic research papers in the field of international economics. You will have received one-to-one guidance to enable you to complete your first research project on a topic that might include international trade, foreign direct investment or migration.
