The programme provides training in advanced economic theory and econometric methods and allows you to specialise or take options in subjects reflecting the School�s main areas of research expertise. The programme prepares you for work as a professional economist in the private and public sector, or for a career in research. Our teaching is informed by the research and scholarship of teaching staff, and is aimed at motivating students to achieve their full potential. All MSc students take a module in Research Methods, which provides practical skills and knowledge for MSc-level research. Students have widely differing backgrounds in mathematics, so the first week of all our Master�s programmes is given over to compulsory intensive teaching in mathematics.
