The Master’s degree in Industrial Economics at the University of East Anglia is a research-training course, where you will combine specialist components of theoretical, empirical and policy analysis in the study of industrial organisation.
This degree is part of our Academic and Professional Programme – designed for people who want to pursue careers as professional economists within government and industry or move into PhD study.
It’s ideal for you if you’ve already studied economics and are looking for intensive research-led training in advanced economic theory, econometrics and research methods, with a specialism in industrial organisation. You should have a good undergraduate degree (equivalent to a 2:1 or a 1st) with a substantial component of economics, or a graduate diploma in economics.
In addition to conducting your own research, you will complete taught modules in Industrial Organisation, Economic Theory and Econometrics. Towards the end of your 12 months with us you will write a dissertation. You are free to choose your own dissertation topic from within the area of competition economics and policy, and you will be supervised by a member of the School of Economics.
Throughout your studies you will be able to interact with leading academics in the field. You will also have the opportunity to engage with research conducted by the Centre for Competition Policy (or CCP). The Centre, based at UEA, works at the forefront of policy debates in competition economics at international level, and has senior advisory links with the UK and European Competition Commissions.
We also offer additional support to help you get the most out of your Master’s degree. This includes an optional, intensive pre-sessional course in the fortnight before your programme begins in September. This course incorporates the techniques of calculus and matrix algebra and an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you will use in your MSc programme. While not compulsory, we strongly recommend you take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
