MSc Economics & Statistical Analysis is a postgraduate conversion programme in Economics and related mathematical and statistical methods and techniques that is designed primarily for graduates in other disciplines. This makes it distinct from most taught masters programmes in Economics as these are designed for Economics graduates.
Once in employment many graduates in more general subject areas find that they lack appropriate analytical and mathematical/statistical skills that would enhance their career progression. This course provides an integrated study of Economics and Statistics. Additionally, the programme has been designed in such a way to allow graduates in either Economics or Statistics to develop expertise in their missing discipline and acquire a postgraduate qualification.
