Economic Analysis

The School of Economics has created the Master of Economic Analysis to take our graduate students to the frontier of economic research and analysis, whether they aspire to positions of intellectual leadership such as a professional economist in government or the private sector, or to doctoral studies at leading research universities around in the world.

Training will cover:

  • advanced tools of economic modeling, and how to apply these models to understand and analyse real-world phenomena from public policy and law, to financial markets and firm strategy, to household choices about education, health, savings and consumption.
  • the art and science of working with data using the most sophisticated tools of econometrics, increasingly essential in a world awash with “Big Data” on every topic imaginable.
  • the application of economic modeling and econometrics to produce a piece of original research in the form of a research thesis. Students receive individual supervision in writing their thesis from one of our experts in the relevant field of research.
