Course summary

In the coming years we will see major changes in the world of work. One of these changes will be a huge increase in demand for data scientists. This MSc will prepare you for a career as a data scientist so that you can help meet this change in demand.

In this MSc, there is a focus on particular types of application: data science techniques are combined with the area of Behavioural Economics, in which the School of Economics at UEA has a world-class reputation.

Having completed this MSc, your Employability prospects will be strong. Policy-makers in government are increasingly turning to behavioural economics for insights into decision-making behaviour, insights that inform our understanding of how individuals, groups and markets operate. Private Sector organisations specialising in Behavioural Economics research are also a growing phenomenon.

You could also take your skills into banking and finance, healthcare, regulation, human resources or executive management. You could also progress to PhD study.

ABOUT

Our MSc Behavioural Economics and Data Science is part of our Applied Training Programme – designed to provide key skills in economics. It is ideal if your undergraduate training was in a subject other than economics, and you now wish to develop analytical skills as an economist. This degree may be particularly useful for those with a maths or science background who wish to make their skills more marketable in the rapidly changing jobs market.

This course incorporates the mathematical techniques necessary for Economic Analysis, and also an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you will use in your MSc programme. While not compulsory, we strongly recommend you take advantage of this opportunity.?
