This Employability-focused Applied Economics MSc will provide you with a robust theoretical and practical preparation to address those questions and to be ready for the challenges of the future.
Aimed both at those who have studied economics and want to develop their knowledge in practical application, and those who haven’t and wish to do a conversion course, the content of this course is business-relevant and informed by the very latest research in the field.
You will explore the principles and theories of Macroeconomics, Microeconomics and Econometrics, gaining a detailed understanding of the contemporary knowledge in these areas with a focus on the application to real world problems. A key feature of our MSc Applied Economics programme is the integration of a finance module which will enable you to develop specialist skills necessary to pursue a career in economics and allied areas.
Modules such as Econometric Modelling and Applied Research Methods will help you to formulate, test and apply formal economic models to real-world data. Elements of the programme have been designed to provide opportunities for you to develop as a professional economist and analyst, and to acquire transferable intellectual and personal skills.
