Description

Develop sought-after skills in quantitative economics and business, on this innovative, cross-disciplinary master’s.

As businesses seek to innovate and develop in the 21st century, there is a growing need for economists with broader knowledge and skills, who can effectively input into new products and policies.

This is borne out in The UK Government’s ‘Industrial Strategy – Building a Britain fit for the future, which calls for a new type of university graduate and manager: one who can operate successfully at the interface of economics, business, mathematics and computer science.

Bringing together extensive expertise from across the Departments of Economics, Computer Science and Mathematical Sciences, and the School of Management, this MSc sets out to educate and prepare economically literate scientists, and scientifically confident economists, for the future.
