Focus on the quantitative side of economics, applying advanced mathematical techniques to real-world situations. In the first year of this degree programme you’ll build a foundation in microeconomics, macroeconomics and quantitative analysis, and in pure and applied mathematics, probability and statistics. The second year focuses on statistical methods and modelling and econometrics, alongside further studies in economics. In the final year you choose from an exceptionally wide range of modules across both disciplines, steering your studies to match your interests or career goals. Cover previous topics in more depth, or branch out in a new direction. Options range from quantitative methods in economics and finance to corporate strategy and management of technology. Mathematical modules could see you studying chaos, actuarial mathematics or cryptography. Joint teaching from the School of Mathematical Sciences and the School of Economics and Finance means you’ll learn from experts across both fields, and benefit from the support of two academic schools.
