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 issues of business strategy and market structure.

So, if you want to specialise in management economics, your first degree isn’t in economics, or your previous economics training doesn’t suit our MSc courses, our MA Management 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.

Your future

After completing your masters, you may wish to extend your knowledge with a research degree – many Essex graduates decide to stay here for further study. Alternatively, our course also prepares you for employment; recent surveys have shown that higher degree graduates are more likely to obtain jobs at professional or managerial level. Our recent master’s level Economics graduates have gone on to work for a range of high-profile organisations like the Bank of England and the International Monetary Fund.
