Masters programmes in Economics
Postgraduate teaching is an important element of the work of the Department of Economics, which not only runs its own programmes but also contributes to other Masters degrees such as the full-time MBA and the MSc in Management.
The Economics Department offers two specialist Masters programmes, with a strong economics focus, and one cross-disciplinary programme ran in conjuction with the departments of Accounting and Finance, Management Science and Mathematics and Statistics.
This MSc is designed for students who have already studied economics and who wish to deepen their knowledge of the subject. It can lead to careers in government, consulting and banking, or to further study at PhD level.
The Graduate Diploma in Economics is a one-year full-time conversion course providing a rigorous training in economics for graduates who do not have an economics background at undergraduate level.
The MSc in Money, Banking and Finance provides students with the skills and knowledge needed for careers in financial institutions and asset markets as well as in the finance departments of industrial firms.
An MRes (Master os Research) variant of the MSc in Money, Banking and Finance is also available.
The MSc in Quantitative Finance draws on the research and teaching expertise of four departments at Lancaster University (Accounting and Finance, Economics, Management Science, and Maths and Statistics) in order to provide a diverse portfolio of financial and quantitative courses. Students will acquire advanced analytical, problem-solving and technical skills relevant for careers in a range of financial institutions and specialist departments in large corporations.
If you feel that you are not qualified for one of our Masters programmes, you may wish to consider our Graduate Diploma in Economics.
