Program Description:

The Economics MSc at City is designed for students wanting to follow a pure Economics Masters degree, rather than a specialised course. You can choose modules from fields including health economics, financial economics, economic regulation and competition, and development economics, as you build your own 'tailor-made' degree. The course also serves as a stepping stone to an Economics PhD. You will be taught by a highly-research active team of academic staff, with many staff appearing at conferences or writing articles in their areas of expertise. Course director Professor Neelam Jain has researched and taught at North American universities including the University of Minnesota, Northern Illinois University and the University of Virginia. You will benefit from City's London location and our proximity to, and connections with, the City of London. We are minutes away from the Square Mile - London's world-famous financial district - and the headquarters of financial and professional institutions. You take seven taught modules (four core modules and three electives) and a dissertation. Course Structure Core modules Microeconomics Macroeconomics Econometrics Game Theory Elective modules Choose three from the following (with no more than two in any field): Financial economics International money and finance Topics in corporate finance Topics in mathematical finance Financial regulation Financial derivatives Numerical methods for financial economic analysis Economics of financial markets Economics of asset pricing Health economics Welfare economics Economics of healthcare Economic regulation and competition Economics of regulation Economics of competition Development economics Development Economics


On completing this MSc you will have a range of employment possibilities, to some extent determined by the electives you choose. For example, if you choose two financial economics electives, one from health economics and the fourth from economic regulation and competition, you may work in the financial industry as a consultant, or in the health industry as a financial analyst, or in any industry that requires a financial or industry analyst. 92 per cent of City's 2009 Economics graduates were in employment or further study 6 months after graduation.
