The programme is designed for those intending to pursue careers as economists within financial institutions or governmental agencies in developing countries, as well as those already in professional posts who wish to expand and update their knowledge. The needs of such economists tend to be twofold: an advanced understanding of the debates in macroeconomic theory and policy from an international perspective; and a detailed knowledge of finance and monetary policy in a developing country context.
Entry requirements for postgraduate taught programmes are a 2.1 Honours degree or non-UK equivalent qualification (for example, GPA 3.0 or above) in economics or in a relevant subject containing a significant amount of economics (at least four credit-bearing courses in economics).
Those who do not have such a background but would like to pursue further studies in the area of banking/finance are advised to apply for the MSc International Banking and Finance or the MSc International Finance and Economic Policy, depending on their interests.
