Master of Science in Economics - Máster en Economía
Policy-makers in government and decision-makers in industry are increasingly looking to behavioural economics for insights into decision-making behaviour.
You will have already studied economics, and with this MSc you will take on a specialist, research-training course in this field – blending economic and psychological modelling, complemented by controlled experiments inside and outside the laboratory.
UEA pioneered behavioural and experimental economics in the UK and remains a leading centre in the use of experiments in economics. You will be in the best place to benefit from interaction with researchers in the Centre for Behavioural and Experimental Social Science (CBESS), and get the opportunity to learn to conduct experiments in our state-of-the-art Laboratory for Economic and Decision Research (LEDR).
This Master’s is ideal if you aim to work as a professional economist in government, industry, international agencies or other similar organisations.
