City University London

Course Introduction

The course is designed for postgraduate students wanting to follow a pure Economics Masters degree, rather than a specialised course. You can choose modules from fields including health economics, financial economics, economic regulation and competition, and development economics, as you build your own 'tailor'made' degree. The postgraduate Economics course also serves as a stepping stone to an Economics PhD.

Optional modules: macroeconomics; history of economic thought; economics of regulation and competition; health economics; development economics; the economics of micro'finance; financial derivatives; asset pricing; corporate finance; topics in corporate finance.
