Course summary

At Essex we push the frontiers of accepted wisdom, critically examining the decisions of individuals, the strategies of firms, and the policies of governments to understand and challenge the standard paradigms of economics. On this course, you build a thorough understanding of the key areas of economics, oriented towards the economics of financial markets.

So, if you want to specialise in financial economics, your first degree isn’t in economics, or your previous economics training doesn’t suit our MSc courses, our MA Financial Economics may be for you.

There's always something fascinating going on in our department, from regular lively debates with prestigious speakers in seminars, workshops and conferences to cutting-edge papers being published in leading journals, including American Economic Review, Econometrica, and Review of Economic Studies.
