City, University of London
The Department of Economics is particularly proud of its reputation, both nationally and internationally and we have a long tradition of providing postgraduate courses with strong professional orientation. We have grown considerably over the last twenty years, from a small number of staff mainly undertaking service teaching to its current status as a medium-sized department undertaking a full range of research, teaching and consultancy activities. The School of Social Sciences has made a considerable investment in recent years into Economics at City. This includes an increase in academic staff, enabling existing and new staff to spend more time on research, and funding for postdoctoral research fellows and PhD student bursaries. We have a wide-ranging but focused research programme, with an emphasis on rigorous economic and econometric modelling, but also a concern for practical applications in both private and public sectors. Much of our research involves collaboration, within the department and University more widely, and with outside bodies, for example NERA and the King's Fund.
Econometrics: Stationary Time-Series Models and Models with Trend; Multivariate Time Series Models; VAR, Cointegration; Structural VARs; and Bayesian Econometrics and DSGE Estimation. Macroeconomics: Parameter and Model Uncertainty: Competing Monetary Models; Macroeconomics and Medium Run; The classical economic growth problem: phase diagrams, comparative dynamics; Open and closed economy representative agent models with money in the utility function, the maximum principle; Brock's representative agent model: optimality in intertemporal optimization problems; The overlapping generations model of fiat money: exchange rate indeterminacy; and Dynamic programming, Markov equilibria. Microeconomics: Individual Decision Making and General Equilibrium; Demand, Production, Choice under Uncertainty; Equilibrium and its Basic Welfare Properties; and Game Theory.
Students can study both full and part-taught programmes; full-time students will be expected to take three taught modules in their first year, in at least two of Advanced Macroeconomics, Advanced Microeconomics, and Econometrics, with a possible choice of one module from the Cass Business School MRes programme. Progression to the second year will be conditional on passing these modules. Part-time students will be expected to pass these three modules during their first two year.
