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.
- After completing your MSc Economics with Data Analytics at the University of Essex with us, you may wish to extend your knowledge with a research degree –many Essex graduates decide to stay here for further study.
- Alternatively, you may choose to initiate your professional career. Our course will prepare you for employment; recent surveys have shown that higher degree graduates are more likely to obtain jobs at professional or managerial level. Our recent Master’s level Economics and CSEE graduates have gone on to work for a range of high-profile organisations like The Bank of England and the International Monetary Fund.
