MSc International Finance and Economics

Department of Economics, Faculty of Social Sciences

Train to be a professional economist to understand and apply powerful economics techniques that make a real difference to the outside world.

I chose my degree because I’m really interested in macroeconomics and finance. After the global banking crisis of 2008, I wanted to learn about the consequences for our globalised world but also how to avoid such a crisis from happening again. My degree helped me to understand these aspects of economics and become a better economist.
