Accelerate your career
The MSc Economics and Management provides a route for acceleration into high-level positions, for example in top consulting or investment banking firms, or careers in academia.
The programme is designed with potential employers in mind, and gives excellent preparation for employment opportunities in business, consulting or finance.
Previous students have secured positions at top employers (see some examples below), and a number of our students have also directly entered PhD programmes upon completion of the degree.
