Economics for Business Intelligence and Systems MSc

What will I learn?

Develop sought-after skills in quantitative economics and business, on this innovative, cross-disciplinary master’s.

As businesses seek to innovate and develop in the 21st century, there is a growing need for economists with broader knowledge and skills, who can effectively input into new products and policies.

This is borne out in The UK Government’s ‘Industrial Strategy – Building a Britain fit for the future, which calls for a new type of university graduate and manager: one who can operate successfully at the interface of economics, business, mathematics and computer science.

Bringing together extensive expertise from across the Departments of Economics, Computer Science and Mathematical Sciences, and the School of Management, this MSc sets out to educate and prepare economically literate scientists, and scientifically confident economists, for the future.

The course has a strong quantitative focus, while also covering other relevant areas such as computer programming, software development and econometrics. You will learn to apply economic and mathematical units and programs to real-business problems, while building a compelling set of skills in areas such as data analysis, data mining, software applications and statistics.

The cross-disciplinary nature of the course makes it noticeably different from other economics master’s course. You will be taught by subject specialists in each field, allowing you to study each topic in greater depth. Developed with close input from well-known employers, and the relevant departments from across the University in combination, the course offers a coherent, and mutually-complementary, mix of technical and soft skills.

The units culminate in a special Practice Track project in the summer, where you will apply what you have learnt to a consultancy project with one of our partner employers during a week-long residential. This may be an intense online residential or held at a specific location. Further details will be available nearer the time.

You will benefit from our well-established business connections across a variety of sectors, both in the UK and overseas.

This course is particularly relevant if you are seeking to build both quantitative and commercial expertise, and have studied a STEM subject at undergraduate level.

Graduate prospects

Your strong disciplinary grounding in both quantitative economics and business will make you sought after across multiple industries and sectors.

Your skills will be particularly relevant to technology companies, consultancy firms, and finance and banking organisations, but also applicable to other business sectors, government and academia.

You could go on to work as a data analyst, credit analyst, financial analyst, economist or business analyst.

You could also progress your studies to doctoral level.
