New course to fill gap in financial sector

An innovative new course is set to help solve the shortage of advanced economists in the financial sector. The new postgraduate programme will appeal to professional economists and ambitious graduates in both local and international markets.

The MSc in Economics & Finance, at the University of Bath, is a result of collaboration between the Departments of Economics & International Development, Mathematical Sciences and the School of Management.

John Cullis, Director of Studies, said: “There is a growing need for people working in the financial sector, here and abroad, to have advanced skills in economics.

“This exciting new programme, which combines the considerable research and teaching expertise of three of our leading departments, will appeal to a broad range of professionals, working in finance, business and the public sector, and recent graduates.

“Students will gain a competitive edge through developing new practical and theoretical skills, and receive an internationally-recognised advanced qualification.”

The programme provides training in the quantitative analysis of financial economic problems, a knowledge of modern economic and finance theory, plus research training in economics and finance giving students the option of continuing on to doctoral work.

The MSc in Economics & Finance will be launched in October 2006 at the University of Bath. The programme is full-time for a year. For further information see
