About

The MSc International Economics, Finance and Development at the University of Surrey is based in one of the top economics schools in the UK. 

Overview

Why choose this course

The global world of business is significantly influenced and affected by international developments in the economic and financial markets.

 The course will provide you with an advanced understanding of core economics principles, looking closely at international trade, finance and the market frictions affecting developing economies.

What you will study

In addition to providing a thorough understanding of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics, the MSc International Economics, Finance and Development at the University of Surrey focuses on two specific areas.

The first area develops expertise in the fields of international trade and international finance, with particular emphasis on the role these have in economic development. The second focuses on financial frictions faced by developing and emerging economies.

You will also cover stabilisation policy, adjustment and economic liberalisation, and study the principal sources of external finance for developing countries.
