  • Course description
    Globalisation has increased the demand for economics graduates who are able to apply economic analysis and quantitative skills creatively to business and policy issues. We aim to enable our graduates to respond to this demand by acquiring specialized and marketable skills in three areas: economics of business decisions and strategies; economics of financial markets; and quantitative data analysis.

    Solid training in theory and method is combined with stimulating exposure to economic and financial data sources as well as interesting case studies.
