Study type Taught


MSc Economics and Finance at Lincoln aims to provide students with a thorough grounding in many of the key concepts, modelling approaches, and research methods deployed in current mainstream economics thinking, which also have important applications within finance.

Intended for graduates in economics-related subject areas who are looking for an advanced programme to enhance their career or explore further research opportunities, the course aims to fuse quantitative methods and advanced economic theory with relevant finance topics.

The course can provide students with the opportunity to analyse the current dynamic environment within the context of appropriate contemporary theory and research. With appropriate levels of sophistication, they can develop the tools and frameworks to analyse issues. Through this process, students can acquire skills that will better enable them to explore and analyse new issues as they emerge.

The aim is to prepare graduates for a career as an economist in fields such as the investment banking industry, international or government organisations, and research roles. By featuring strong research and enquiry skills, it also aims to help those wanting to progress to a PhD.
