Here’s what our Graduates say:
“I enjoyed the flexibility that we are given in choosing units to study. Options are available not only from the Department of Economics but also the School of Management. I chose finance-related units for my first semester, and then more economics-based units in the second one, which provided me insight into the rationale behind the development and growth of various countries, as well as problems such as efficiency and social inequality. The flexible combination allowed me to choose what I wanted to learn.
What would I say to someone considering studying the programme here? If you are determined to do an MSc degree and you believe that utility curves are interesting, or exchange rate mechanism is a lot of fun, or Econometrics is not boring, then this programme is your thing!”
