This programme comprises 10 months of full-time study. You will attend an initial course known as Introductory Course in Mathematics and Statistics (before the main teaching programme starts) in late August 2019. This course includes reviews concepts in optimization, fixed point theory, dynamic programming and optimal control, and in probability and statistics, amongst other topics.
You will take three compulsory courses, an elective course and an extended essay linked to the elective course during the main teaching programme.
Please note: ten-month master's programmes are not compliant with the Bologna process, which may affect the extent to which they are 'recognised'. For more information, see Bologna process.
Focuses on core models of growth and business cycle fluctuations, drawing on developments at the frontiers of research.
Focuses on classical theories of choice, general equilibrium, game theory, information economics as well as their applications from industrial organization to political economy. The relationship to new developments in behavioural economics and other fields will also be discussed.
Or (with permission)
Gives more emphasis to mathematical methods following a proof-based approach, and provides a firmer grounding in classical microeconomic theory while also discussing recent developments in economic theory.
Presents modern, technical tools for empirical analysis in economics, for cross section, time series and panel data; focusing on the properties of different estimation models as well as illustrating the use of these techniques in practical problems.
Courses to the value of one unit from a range of options
You can find the most up-to-date list of optional courses in the Programme Regulations section of the current School Calendar.
You must note however that while care has been taken to ensure that this information is up to date and correct, a change of circumstances since publication may cause the School to change, suspend or withdraw a course or programme of study, or change the fees that apply to it. The School will always notify the affected parties as early as practicably possible and propose any viable and relevant alternative options. Note that that the School will neither be liable for information that after publication becomes inaccurate or irrelevant, nor for changing, suspending or withdrawing a course or programme of study due to events outside of its control, which includes but is not limited to a lack of demand for a course or programme of study, industrial action, fire, flood or other environmental or physical damage to premises.
You must also note that places are limited on some courses and/or subject to specific entry requirements. The School cannot therefore guarantee you a place. Please note that changes to programmes and courses can sometimes occur after you have accepted your offer of a place. These changes are normally made in light of developments in the discipline or path-breaking research, or on the basis of student feedback. Changes can take the form of altered course content, teaching formats or assessment modes. Any such changes are intended to enhance the student learning experience. You should visit the School’s Calendar, or contact the relevant academic department, for information on the availability and/or content of courses and programmes of study. Certain substantive changes will be listed on the updated graduate course and programme information page.
