Master of Science
The M. Sc. in Economics is designed for students who have a general interest in Economics. You have a good Bachelor?s degree in Economics or any related field? You want to deepen your understanding of Economics without necessarily focusing on either International Economics or Finance? Then this is the program for you.
A broad range of field courses and electives gives you all the necessary flexibility to develop your individual academic profile. The courses available include International Economics, Game Theory and Industrial Organization, Innovation and Growth, Monetary Macroeconomics, Economic History, Microeconometrics, Theory and Empirical Analysis of Financial Markets and Financial Institutions. Graduates of this program will have acquired advanced, up-to-date knowledge in several areas of Economics and will be able to apply their knowledge in attractive professional careers, both in government institutions and in the private sector.
We place great emphasis on active student involvement. Attending a Master seminar, you will earn credits by writing a research paper on a topical issue of Economics, Econometrics or Finance, and by presenting your paper in class. Most importantly, you will write a Master thesis on a topic agreed upon between yourself and your thesis supervisor.
Working on your thesis under the dedicated supervision of a faculty member will allow you, with due effort, to move up to the frontier of academic research. In doing so, you will acquire methodological skills and expertise that greatly enhance your career perspectives, including a possible continuation of your education in an excellent Ph. D. program.
Double Degree Options
This program can be completed as a double degree with the University of Adelaide or the University of Nottingham.
