International Economics and Finance

This programme promotes a distinct approach to considering relevant problems and issues in international economics and finance, and to proactively devise and undertake coherent research problems, by applying appropriate analytical techniques. Students have the benefit of learning from a diverse and varied teaching team, who have both academic and industry based experience, and are involved in an array of research and consultancy activities across the public, private and voluntary sectors. MSc International Economics & Finance is aimed particularly, though not exclusively, at students who have previously studied elements of economics and finance within their undergraduate degree, but are looking to broaden their perspective from the purely domestic to the international arena.
