Study type Taught

Summary

The primary purpose of this course is to try and equip you with the practical experience, skills and knowledge to apply advanced economics principles and mathematics to support decision making – at a global, national or individual firm level.

Upon successful completion, this ability to practice effective decision making should support you as you progress into your chosen future career, either as an economist or in related roles and sectors.

We adopt a holistic approach, exploring the synergies between economic theory, management practice, international business and finance.

Throughout your studies, you will have the opportunity to encounter real-life scenarios. You will also have the opportunity to learn how to use managerial economics tools to solve actual economic problems – from determining optimal pricing strategies to evaluating mergers and take-overs, among others.

Course content is regularly reviewed and updated to reflect new developments in economics, the world economy and the needs of private and public sectors. For example, we have recently examined the topic of why corporate CEO pay is so high.

Through our current links with external organisations, including regulatory bodies and public sector institutions, as well as major firms, we aim to provide relevant guest lectures for our students, with previous attendees coming from firms such as PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and the Government Economic Service (subject to availability).

This course can be offered on a part-time basis, with study over two years. Whilst we would like to give you all the information about our part-time offering here, it is tailored for each course each year depending on the number of part-time applicants. Therefore, the part-time teaching arrangements vary. You can make an enquiry about part-time study using our online forms, for UK and for EU/International students.
