The Department of Economics is one of the leading departments in the UK and has a very high international reputation.
Strengths in many fields
The Department has particular strengths in the fields of economic theory and econometrics, international trade, money and banking, and economic growth and development.
Training and skills
An aim within the Department of Economics is to provide students with the necessary skills to succeed when they leave Birmingham. We believe that students and staff work together to ensure students receive the best intellectual training possible and that they develop personal skills which are transferable to the job market.
A career in Economics
At the end of your year studying with us, you will be equipped with the skills you will need to embark on a career in economics or finance, or to enter another profession, requiring the valuable transferable skills and insights obtained from an economics-related Masters degree.
We also hope that some of you will want to stay in the department to study for a research degree.
