The MSc Economics and Finance at the University of Bath is aimed at those who are interested in specialising in finance within an economics programme. It is a one-year, full-time programme (or two years part-time) which prepares graduates to meet the requirements for well-qualified economists in the financial sector.
It’s a distinctive, internationally attractive, high-quality programme comprised of units delivered by the Department of Economics, the School of Management and the Department of Mathematics, all three being internationally reputed, highly rated and research-led.
Students are given advanced training in the analysis of financial economic problems and policy, and the mathematical, statistical and econometric skills acquired will enable students to carry out quantitative analyses of financial and economic problems.
To apply, a first degree in economics is preferable, although many applicants are graduates in other areas with strong quantitative skills such as mathematics or business.
