This programme provides a solid foundation in economics together with advanced teaching in Econometric subjects, led by Professor James Davidson, a leading academic in the subject.



Our MSc Economics programmes are intended to deepen your knowledge and understanding of economics as an academic discipline. Each programme draws upon the internationally rated research undertaken within the department and the experience of our academics in developing economic policy at organisations such as the Bank of England, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the United Nations.

A central objective of all of the programmes is to provide you with insight into the latest thinking in economics. You will attend a series of research seminars, during which you can discuss and present current research papers. You can also participate in the departmental seminars, which attract external academics and provide you with the opportunity to gain insight into current research in economics and econometrics.

This programme mirrors the general MSc Economics programme, but contains an additional core module in Advanced Econometrics. Whilst this module is available elsewhere, it is only compulsory in the MSc Economics and Econometrics.

The programme provides a solid foundation in economics, together with advanced training in econometrics, and is ideal for anyone wanting a career involving econometrics or economics research.
