As with all our Economics programmes, our Business Economics and Finance MSc will give you a thorough education in the microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. This programme combines that understanding with two particular specialty areas. Firstly, modules in the Economics of the Firm and Human Resource Economics are concerned with the importance of business issues in the study of economics and modern developments in personnel economics. The second area of specialisation focuses on the theory of finance and financial econometrics. The former will give you a thorough grounding in modern finance theory, while the latter is directed towards the principal econometric techniques that have been applied to financial data. This programme provides you with knowledge and skills that are of immediate value in the job market, whilst also providing an excellent base from which to undertake further research. Research skills are honed as part of the programme and you will have the opportunity to use these skills to carry out a dissertation under individual supervision by an academic within the School of Economics.
