The programme consists of a set of core and elective modules, culminating in a practice- based business project or a research-based dissertation.

Core and elective modules

You’ll study six modules that provide a foundation of essential knowledge and understanding.

Core modules

  • Public Economics

Based on your prior knowledge and experience you will be streamed to study one of the following module pairings:

  • Econometrics I and Econometrics II
  • Econometrics I and Microeconometrics
  • Econometric Methods and Microeconometrics
  • Econometric Methods and Financial Modelling and Business Forecasting

You will then choose two elective modules. The list of modules may vary from year to year, but has typically included Behavioural Finance and Economics, Econometrics, Experimental Economics and Finance, International Finance, Labour Economics, Money and Banking.

Dissertation/Business Project or Placement

In the third term you will complete a 12,000 word dissertation which may be undertaken as a consultancy project within an organisation, during a placement or with one of our international partner institutions. Supervised by a faculty member with relevant experience, you’ll investigate in greater detail a subject that you’ve already studied as part of your programme.

This is an opportunity for you to develop your business insight and present your analysis and ideas in a scholarly and professional manner; combine critical discrimination and a sense of proportion in evaluating evidence and the opinions of others.
