In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules.

The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Professionals who have studied economics and administration comprehend both the larger economic picture and smaller, individualized trends. It is an interdisciplinary field in which specialists are trained to consider and analyze many components in both the public and private section and make recommendations based on current and potential conditions.
