Applied Econometrics MSc: Course features

What this course offers you

If you choose to study this course, here are some of the things you can expect from the course and how it will benefit you.

  • This course is designed for those who wish to pursue a career or further study in which the application of statistical methods, particularly econometric methods, plays a large role. Examples of the application focus could include:
    • market research;
    • evidenced-based planning and policy advice; or
    • financial modelling and forecasting.
  • Econometrics is distinguished from statistical analysis more generally by its use of economic concepts and theories as a basis for empirical investigation. The approach taken in this course is to emphasise:
    • the application potential of a broad range of econometric techniques; and
    • effective communication of empirical results, rather than the statistical theory upon which econometric methods depend.
  • Teaching staff are research-active, which keeps your learning cutting-edge. (Read more in the Research section.)
  • The taught modules aim to prepare you for the job market. Alongside your academic studies, you gain skills in:
    • problem solving and organisation;
    • data collation, review and synopsis;
    • communication (oral, written and electronic);
    • time management;
    • computing; and
    • co-operation and teamwork.
  • We offer a part-time option to help you fit your studies around other commitments.
