Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

As businesses seek to innovate and develop in the 21st century, there is a growing need for economists with broader knowledge and skills, who can effectively input into new products and policies.

This is borne out in The UK Government’s ‘Industrial Strategy – Building a Britain fit for the future', which calls for a new type of university graduate and manager: one who can operate successfully at the interface of economics, business, mathematics and computer science.

Drawing on the extensive expertise from across the Departments of Economics, Computer Science and Mathematical Sciences, and the School of Management, this MSc sets out to educate and prepare economically literate scientists, and scientifically confident economists, for the future.

The Economics for Business Intelligence and Systems  course from University of Bath  has a strong quantitative focus, while also covering other relevant areas such as computer programming, software development and econometrics. You will learn to apply economic and mathematical units and programs to real-business problems, while building a compelling set of skills in areas such as data analysis, data mining, software applications and statistics.
