The MSc Management and Economics programme is a specialist multidisciplinary degree located in the Department of Management, and taught in conjunction with the Department of Economics.
The degree is aimed at students with a strong analytical background who wish to combine economics at the Masters level with analytical courses in the management area. The programme is built around a central core course entitled "Firms and Markets" which uses graduate level microeconomics with a focus on understanding firm's market strategies. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of this course in both developing analytical skills and in showing how these analytical skills can be deployed in practical strategic settings. Building on this foundation, graduates will be well equipped to go either to PhD level study or to employment opportunities in industry, finance and consulting.
