About This Course Our MSc Finance and Economics is part of our Academic and Professional Programme – designed for people who want to pursue a professional career in finance or economics or move into PhD study. It’s ideal for you if you’ve studied economics before and are looking to specialise further – through intensive, research-led training in advanced economics with a particular specialty in finance. You should already have a good undergraduate degree (equivalent to a 2:1 or a 1st) with a substantial component of economics, or a graduate diploma in economics. You'll build your expertise with core compulsory taught modules in microeconomic theory and financial econometrics, along with a range of optional modules.

Your dissertation – which you'll write towards the end of your year with us – gives you the freedom to choose your own topic from within the area of finance and economics. Throughout your dissertation, you'll benefit from supervision and support from a member of the School of Economics. We offer specialised structural support to help you negotiate your Master’s course. This includes compulsory, intensive pre-sessional training before the start of teaching on your course modules. This training incorporates the techniques of calculus and matrix algebra and an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you'll use in your MSc programme.
