The Department of Economics and the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the  University of Essex  have created a joint Economics with Data Analytics course that allows you to develop the economic and computational tools to not just isolate problems but also develop sophisticated evidence-based answers.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn the essentials of economics, so you can build a grounding to analyse economic problems, you will then build on this knowledge with programming skills. We combine these two approaches in a series of applications that allow you to access and process big data using advanced econometrics and also apply computational techniques to questions of financial economics and macroeconomics.
