Presentación

This programme is offered either full and part time basis.
Explore the complexity of economic development with an approach that’s both analytically rigorous and problem and policy oriented.

On this MSc you’ll learn to apply rigorous economic analyses to real-world problems like poverty and underdevelopment to identify effective policies. Importantly, you’ll integrate methods, research findings and new insights from behavioural and experimental economics. While taught by specialised development economists, the MSc is housed in the multi/interdisciplinary School of International Development. This gives you the chance to take two taught modules from a choice taught by political scientists, anthropologists, specialists on natural resource, gender, and education – making this course a fascinating and rewarding choice.
