Gain a strong grounding in advanced economics. Take your knowledge a step further by applying it to the field that most interests you.

Our MSc Applied Economics and MSc Applied Economics with Banking and Financial Markets provide rigorous training in all the main aspects of economics. We are one of the only universities in the UK offering this level of specialisation on this type of master's.

    Starting with a comprehensive refresher in essential maths and economics skills, you will go on to receive advanced training in the analysis of problems in applied microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics and strategic decision-making.

    Most importantly, you will then have the opportunity to tailor the course to the area of business or policy you are most interested in, giving you additional expertise and a head start when seeking work in that field.

    You will develop your knowledge of quantitative methods beyond undergraduate level and gain the mathematical, statistical and econometric skills to carry out quantitative analyses of applied economics problems.

    You will consolidate your research skills further during the dissertation, which you will work on over the summer under the supervision of one of our experienced lecturers. The research training you receive will prepare you well for going into research positions in a government or commercial context.

    By the end of the course you will be able to:

    • analyse and interpret economic data and critically evaluate existing research
    • apply economic concepts to specific economic and policy questions, focusing in particular on the area of business or policy that most interests you
    • design and undertake independent research projects

    Learning and teaching

    Our teaching staff are active researchers and regularly publish in the top economics journals. You'll benefit from their economic expertise.

    Graduate prospects

    This course is ideal preparation for careers within government or industry that require a thorough knowledge of economics.

    We expect graduates of the MSc Applied Economics with Banking and Financial Markets to be particularly suited to jobs in banks and other financial institutions.

    We recently hosted a webinar on our postgraduate Economics courses, covering course content and structure, graduate prospects and admissions information. A recording of this webinar can be accessed here.
