Overview

The advanced and technically rigorous nature of the programme also serves as an excellent foundation for PhD programmes and other research-focused roles.

The one-year route is for students with a strong undergraduate degree in economics and a solid quantitative background, while the two-year route is designed for students who have a sound quantitative background but lack the necessary knowledge in quantitative techniques for the one-year route.

The Economics programme from London School of Economics and Political Science concentrates on the core elements of economic theory, macroeconomics and econometrics. The extensive use of mathematics is intended as a tool in order to facilitate analysis, with the primary objective of the programme being the provision of a formal training in - and in-depth understanding of - core economic models and methods.
