Based in one of the top economics schools in the UK, this particular programme combines an advanced understanding of core economics principles with a focus on international trade, finance and the market frictions affecting developing economies.
The MSc International Economics, Finance and Development programme focuses on two specific areas, in addition to providing a thorough understanding of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics.
The first area develops expertise in the fields of international trade and international finance, with particular emphasis on their role in economic development. The second area centres on financial frictions faced by developing and emerging economies.
You will also cover stabilisation policy, adjustment and economic liberalisation, and study the principal sources of external finance for developing countries.
Those wishing to work in research and/or policy-making in international organisations and think-tanks focused on development issues will find this programme particularly relevant.
