Program Description:

These programmes are based in the Department of Economics and offer the following benefits: Study in one of the largest economics departments in the world, renowned for its research and contributions to the development of the subject area. Our former students are employed as economists in a wide range of national and international organisations in government, international institutions, business and finance. These MSc programmes are designed to meet the needs of those who wish to take a more mathematical approach to economics. They have proved popular with mathematicians, statisticians, physical scientists and engineers converting to economics, as well as to graduate economists. The structure of the programmes is flexible, and allows you to specialise to some extent in either econometrics or economic theory, or a mixture of the two. The level of the material covered is perhaps higher than for any other master's degree internationally in this area, and the programmes have a long standing international reputation, listing numerous distinguished economists and econometricians among their graduates. You should have a strong background in economic theory, econometrics, statistics and mathematics at a high level in your first degree. If you do not have the full range of subject background required, you may apply to take the MSc over two years; please see the section below on the two-year route.
