Economics

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

Economics and administration is a hybrid field in which professionals are trained in both macro and micro economics. Analysis of history and understanding economic principles, along with knowledge of finance, public policy and business topics arm experts in making short and long term recommendations.

 

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.
