Taught by a world-class faculty, our two masters programmes give a thorough knowledge of cutting-edge techniques in theoretical and applied economics. The 3 month dissertation allows these skills to be applied to a project of the student’s choice. Recent graduates have gone on to PhDs, research institutes and careers across the public and private sectors.
The Economics MSc at UCL will equip the professional economist with the powerful tools required to understand the rapidly changing, complex and uncertain modern world economy.
