The Graduate Diploma is a conversion course designed for students who wish to move into Economics (or Finance) and who have both a good degree in another subject and appropriate mathematical skills. This program would be ideal for someone who wanted to do a MSc in Economics and needed some undergraduate-level study as preparation (many of our students have gone on to do Masters degrees or PhDs at Bristol or elsewhere), but can also be used as a stand-alone qualification for those who want an introduction to quantitative economics.
The program is a "crash course": students take second-year core undergraduate units (and one third-year optional unit) and are expected to have done some preparation of first-year level material in their own time before arriving at Bristol.
We offer a range of MSc programmes, each with distinctive characteristics. The programmes have different 'mixes' of economics, econometrics, accounting, finance and management. We suggest that you read this page carefully before investigating the programmes that interest you.
Seeking an effective alternative to the MBA? The University of Bristol offers a part-time Masters programme for busy professionals who want to improve their ability to deal with the complexities and challenges facing organisations today.
This very practical Masters degree will give participants a thorough grounding in leading high performing teams, managing change and developing robust strategic direction. The programme has been designed with the current recession in mind to deliver a return on investment from day one.
