The Economics from University College London (UCL) aims to provide students with a sound and worthwhile education in modern economics and econometrics, developing important transferable skills of problem-definition, analysis, and self-motivation.
Students will learn to use the formal tools that are necessary to understand and conduct cutting-edge research in both theoretical and applied economics.
Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, and practical and problem classes. The MSc degree is awarded on the basis of written, final examination papers and the research dissertation.
According to the Destination of Leavers of Higher Education Surveys, recent graduates go on to a variety of roles including those in the civil service (eg, HM Treasury), central banks (eg, Bank of England and European Central Bank), research (eg, Institute of Fiscal Studies), consultancy (eg, Accenture, KPMG, PWC, Frontier Economics and Charles River Associates), and the financial sector. Many of our students also continue with their studies, entering PhD programmes at world-renowned institutions including UCL, LSE, and Cambridge.
The UCL Economics MSc is a passport to a career in major national and international institutions that demand a deeper, more rigorous analytical reasoning in economics. In these roles, MSc graduates draw on a theoretical grounding and wealth of practical analytical tools to formulate relevant questions in economics and produce high-quality economic analysis valued by employers and prestigious PhD programmes.
Students benefit from the international reputations of the programme’s academic staff and the academic excellence and international perspectives of their fellow MSc students.
Major employers invite UCL MSc graduates to apply for roles.
