Economics for Business and Policy PG Cert, PG Dip, MSc University of Stirling


Course info


This new Masters course is different to others: it places great emphasis on applying economic thinking to real world business and policy challenges. Our course is suitable for anyone with a drive to succeed in economics, even if you’ve had no previous training in this area.

You'll explore interactions between international institutions, governments and households, and develop an appreciation of the insights that economic analysis can bring to business and policy. Our course also cultivates your skills in decision making and analysis, while enhancing your critical thinking abilities in evaluating business performance, management styles and statistics, as well as public, social and macroeconomic policies and their effect on businesses and households.

We prepare you for the workplace, as through this course you'll gain practical experience by working with organisations across the business landscape, such as Wood Mackenzie and Scottish Power, through to Zero Waste Scotland and the Institute for Fiscal Studies. You’ll get to delve into the markets and environments these organisations work in through a mix of site visits and guest lectures. There’s also the opportunity to undertake a summer consultancy project with external clients. This allows you to integrate the knowledge and skills from your master’s degree to solve a real business challenge.
