Summary

**We aspire to help you develop your knowledge and understanding of core economic theories and principles, in order to apply these to policy making and resource allocation scenarios. If you aspire to develop a career in economics, business, government, finance or media and the voluntary sector, our course will help prepare you for a wide variety of careers that require advanced economic analytical skills.**

* This conversion course is ideal if you’ve not previously studied economics but want to develop the knowledge and skills required to pursue a career in business and finance.

* The course covers the fundamentals of how economies operate around the world, and enables you to make sense of the numbers behind the markets.

* You’ll have the opportunity to practice live share dealing in our Trading Room with Bloomberg Market Concepts.

* You’ll have the opportunity to develop your analytical skills through the study of econometrics and deepen your understanding of the global economy

The course provides an additional 6-month professional practice placement opportunity at the end of the course. This allows students with limited experience to put the skills and techniques developed throughout the Master’s degree into practice. This option would be of particular interest to international students.
