The Kent School of Economics offers both taught and research postgraduate degrees, covering all aspects of the subject.
We are dedicated to excellence in both teaching and research, demonstrated by results in the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 and recent student surveys. All academic staff are active in research, and teaching and learning are informed by the School’s thriving research culture and strong cosmopolitan academic community.
This programme is designed to provide an education in advanced finance theory and econometric methods. The compulsory modules build on your existing knowledge, understanding and skills, so you develop a deeper understanding of econometric and financial theories, quantitative and research methods, and policy applications. Teaching and learning skills are carefully integrated into the structure of the modules and degree programme.
Our teaching is informed by the research and scholarship of teaching staff, and is aimed at motivating you to achieve your full potential. All MSc students take a module in Research Methods, which provides practical skills and knowledge for MSc-level research. Students have widely differing backgrounds in mathematics, so the first week of all our Master’s programmes is given over to compulsory intensive teaching in mathematics.
