About

The MSc Business Economics at University College Cork is an integrated course applying economics to the business environment. Designed in consultation with leaders from the business community and public sector organisations, this unique course equips you with the key skills for career development in the ever-changing business world. 

Overview

The MSc Business Economics course is unique to University College Cork, incorporating both taught courses and action research, and using economic theory and analysis explicitly applied to business. 

Learning outcomes

Through the focused taught courses and conducting your own research, you learn how to explain and apply core theories, empirical methods and a range of analytical tools that are relevant and transferable to a range of fundamental business issues. The use of workshops, discussion groups, visiting speakers and lectures guide student learning and allow you to explore fundamental business issues.

This is a research-orientated course, which is both theoretically grounded and evidence-based. The focus is on analysing, understanding and explaining business performance in a competitive environment.

A portfolio of skills required to support business analysis and managerial decision-making is developed, including communication skills (written and oral), analytical and evaluation skills and team-working skills. Our market research has indicated that such skills are very highly rated by employers.
