About this course

This integrated Masters degree will help you develop an in-depth understanding of economic theory and give you the conceptual, analytical and research skills to become a professional economist. You'll learn from from experts whose research has influenced international policy, and use facilities such as our Bloomberg Trading Suite and behavioural economics laboratory.

You'll gain a specialist knowledge of:

  • microeconomics (the behaviour of individuals and businesses)

  • macroeconomics (the behaviour of the economy as a whole)

  • econometrics (applying mathematical and statistical models to economic systems)

You'll also have the freedom to shape your studies by choosing optional modules to suit your interests or career plans. You could choose international banking, risk management or public economics, for example.

You'll study in lectures and small classes. Our facilities include the behavioural economics laboratory and the Bloomberg Trading Suite - a realistic trading room environment with the most detailed financial data available.

You'll graduate with practical transferable skills essential to a successful career or continued learning.
