About This Course The Graduate Diploma in Economics is taken over 10 months, full-time. As well as being a qualification in its own right, it provides a sound basis for progression to further postgraduate study. Students who successfully secure a good pass on our Graduate Diploma, subject to the appropriate choice of options, are guaranteed a place on our MSc degree programme. The Diploma consists of a combination of undergraduate-level taught modules. There are compulsory modules in intermediate microeconomics, intermediate macroeconomics and econometrics. In addition to these, you’ll choose options from a range of modules covering areas including corporate finance, behavioural economics, global trade, strategy, mathematical economics, econometrics and programming. The options give you the opportunity to study areas that interest you at a more advanced level. By way of additional support, the School of Economics runs an intensive course in Mathematics and Statistics for Economists in the fortnight before the degree starts in September. This incorporates the techniques of calculus, statistical analysis and statistical computing. While not compulsory, it is strongly recommended that students attend this course.
