University of Exeter


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. The MSc Economics is the most general of our programmes and offers the greatest flexibility. It gives you the opportunity to acquire professional training in mainstream economics, including analytical techniques as well as subject-specific knowledge. We also provide the opportunity for you to specialise in two specific areas of economics and for these specialisms to be reflected in your degree title. Our MSc Economics and Econometrics and MSc Behavioural Economics and Finance give you the opportunity to focus on two areas in which the Department of Economics has considerable expertise and experience. The double degree option enables you to gain a second Masters qualification by studying for a year with one of our prestigious partner universities. Specific to this programme is a Double Degree opportunity with Fudan University School of Economics.
