Following a similar structure to our Economics BA/BSc, this course also includes modules in econometrics, providing a rigorous analysis of mathematical and statistical methods. It will equip you with the analytical and discursive skills of a well-trained economist with a focus on advanced econometric analysis. You can apply to spend part of your second year at the University’s campuses in China and Malaysia or in locations such as Australia, Canada and Japan. The School of Economics is a recognised global leader in its field. It is situated on the beautiful University Park Campus in the Sir Clive Granger Building, which is named after the 2003 Nobel Prize winner for economic science, who spent more than 20 years studying and working at the University.
Your first year will focus on economic theory and maths/statistics, and explore current economic questions of cultural, political and social importance. You will also take core modules in mathematical economics and econometrics. Our dedicated careers module includes guidance on preparing your CV, interview techniques and applying for internships. In your second year, you will focus on econometric theory, establishing a thorough knowledge of the matrix algebra of the general linear regression model and the statistical properties of time series data, models and forecasts. Your final year will build on topics covered in previous years, also providing a detailed treatment of the models and techniques used in the analysis of time series, panel and cross section data (many of which were pioneered by alumnus Sir Clive Granger).
