MSc Development Economics

Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham

Emerging and developing economies are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with on the global arena. Formal and technical analysis of these economies is an essential part of continuing Third World development. Specialised courses in development theory, development policy and econometrics will hone your analytic, technical and research skills as you prepare for your career in the industry.

The MSc in Development Economics is one of the Department’s newer taught MSc programmes and reflects our growing strength in both theoretical and applied policy areas, particularly as they relate to developing countries.

Why study this course

Studying on one of the Department’s MSc programmes will provide you with an excellent set of specialist and transferable skills. You will be given an advanced training in core areas of economics that are widely used in economics-based professions and, depending on which degree programme you are studying on, you will also receive specialist training in areas relevant to your programme and take options in other areas that interest you.

Another aim within the Department of Economics is to provide students with the necessary skills to succeed when they leave Birmingham. To this end, we believe that students and staff work together to ensure students receive the best intellectual training possible and that they develop personal skills which are transferable to the job market.

At the end of your year studying with us, you will be equipped with the skills you will need to embark on a career in economics or finance, or to enter another profession, requiring the valuable transferable skills and insights obtained from an economics-related Masters degree. We also hope that some of you will want to stay in the department to study for a research degree.

Entry requirements

A good Honours degree (2:1 or higher) or equivalent in Economics or a related discipline. You are expected to have received a good training in economics, to at least intermediate level, and to have a basic knowledge of calculus and statistics.

We accept a range of qualifications from different countries.
