Course summary

If you are looking to study and analyse pressing economic problems using advanced data analytic techniques, the MSc Economics with Data Analytics is for you. The Department of Economics and the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering have created a joint course that allows you to develop the economic and computational tools to not just isolate problems but also develop sophisticated evidence-based answers.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn the essentials of economics, so you can build a grounding to analyse economic problems, you will then build on this knowledge with programming skills. We combine these two approaches in a series of applications that allow you to access and process big data using advanced econometrics and apply computational techniques to questions of financial economics and macroeconomics.

Our MSc Economics with Data Analytics allows you to build a theoretical understanding of how to approach economic problems, together with computational skills, with the opportunity of applying these research skills in applications by studying topics such as:

  • Computational Models for Microeconomics and Finance
  • Computational Macroeconomics and Policy Design
  • Micro econometrics
  • Applications of Data Analysis

Your future

After completing your master’s with us, you may wish to extend your knowledge with a research degree –many Essex graduates decide to stay here for further study.

Alternatively, you may choose to initiate your professional career. Our course will prepare 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 and CSEE graduates have gone on to work for a range of high-profile organisations like The Bank of England and the International Monetary Fund.
