Economics and Finance MSc




What will I learn?

Well-trained, numerate professionals are in high demand in the financial services sector. Our MSc Economics and Finance will provide you with the capability to apply modern macroeconomic, microeconomic and econometric methods in order to assess and shape organisational, government and financial policy.

The programme is ideal if you are interested in a career in banking, finance government (central banking, treasury, etc), international organisations, business, management consultancy and economic consultancy.

You will be taught by academic experts in economics and finance at a top 10 UK business school (ranked in the top 15 in the UK for Economics in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021). You will explore economic theory and policy, the actions of governments, firms, households and intermediaries in national and global money, and bond and foreign exchange markets.

You will examine both the microeconomic impacts for firms and the macroeconomic implications for the global economy, and will develop advanced theoretical and quantitative skills – highly sought after by employers in financial services and government – as well as transferable skills that will be of value in a range of other business and policy sectors.

In addition, there is the opportunity to sharpen your practical skills by completing a research project that allows you to apply your knowledge of economics and finance.
