The COVID pandemic has restructured the economy in many countries which affects the labour market and unemployment. In addition, current events such as Brexit and the regional trade agreements such as the CPTPP pose some questions of how globalization would evolve in the future. On our Economics MSc you will have the opportunity to discuss and propose solutions to these emerging problems through modern economics theories, analytical skills and data analytics.

During the course you will build strong transferable skills in relevant quantitative methods and statistical techniques. It allows you to develop the subject specific skills of quantification, evaluation and design to an advanced level and is supported by modules that provide you with an understanding of how to handle and organise data in a comprehensive way.

Employers value the transferable skills of well evidenced empirical analysis and economists that are numerate and able to communicate economic ideas in reports and public audits, as required in many professions that economists join.

Economics MSc at DMU responds to employer and student demands and the need for students to enhance their degree skills, for a very competitive employment market. The current state of the world economy has seen the subject of Economics being brought onto the centre stage of policy analysis and as such, graduates should be in a position to contribute to that analysis.
