    Course Summary

    The University of Essex’s International Economics degree program is an excellent way to develop a highly marketable expertise in international economic relations, from both the theoretical and applied perspectives.

    This one year MSc degree will show you how to critically integrate theory and real world data, producing a relevant, reliable analysis of any issue regarding international economics. You might turn this into a fruitful career in international business or finance, in the public sector, or in any role that deals intimately with international trade and / or global development.

    You will study trade theory in a variety of settings and markets, trade policies such as quotas and tariffs, the effects of preferential trade agreements, Macroeconomic adjustments to integrated capital markets and how game theory and strategic planning interact to form the international economic playing field. Better still, you’ll study in a department which has more than 90% of its research output ranked as Internationally Excellent or World Leading by the REF as of 2014.

Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    In your third term, you will also undertake an extensive dissertation with the guidance of the academic staff. You will have the full support of your professors in this, many of whom have contributed to academic journals such as the Review of Economic Studies, Econometrica and American Economic Review.
