  • The MSc Business Economics and Finance degree has been developed based on collaboration with practitioners who advised on the skills that are most valued in employment. The course is delivered by academics who are at the forefront of their research area, regularly interacting with policymakers and businesses to advise them on key decision making matters.  It is an appropriate next step for those with a foundation knowledge of economics.

    This course will provide you with further knowledge of economics and finance subjects and develop your familiarity with key theories that aid in understanding real world issues. In addition it will equip you with a wide of range of practical skills that are highly demanded by employers.

    The course includes the key components of economics, finance and quantitative methods.

    The finance modules will help you to develop an understanding of the workings of financial markets, investments, corporate finance and their constituents. The economics modules will develop your understanding of how the economy and business organisations function and how these areas are influenced by policymakers. By jointly studying the finance and economics modules, you will be able to develop an understanding of how financial markets and investment decisions are affected by changing economic and institutional environments. 

    The quantitative methods modules will equip you with a practical, analytical and statistical understanding of the tools that can be used for solving financial and economic problems. You will have access to advanced statistical and econometric software packages to enable you to analyse financial and economic data. The combination of these technical and analytical skills complemented with an understanding of economics and finance will enable you to make effective recommendations about policy and investment problems. A consistent message we get from employers is that these skills are vital for a successful career.

    Practical development will be embedded within the modules and assessments throughout the course. For example, you will be exposed to data handling, conducting analytical research, group work and report writing.
