Welcome from Dr Raul Crespo
Dr Raul Crespo
MSc Economics, Accounting and Finance
I would like to introduce myself, my name is Raul Crespo and I am the Programme Director for the MSc in Economics, Accounting and Finance. I am delighted that you have been made an offer of postgraduate study at the University of Bristol this year!
I have overall responsibility for your programme’s content and delivery – whilst you are a student here, I will be able to help and advise you on the academic side of your studies.
I am a Teaching Fellow in the Economics Department at Bristol University, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in the United Kingdom. My research interest lies in the areas of short-run economic fluctuations and economic growth. I have a particular interest in empirical studies for developing countries. Most of my work has focused on the study of the Venezuelan economy. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Bristol in 2003, an MSc in Economics and Econometrics from Bristol in 1998, an MA in Economics from Notre Dame University in 1992, and a BS in Economics from Universidad Central de Venezuela in 1988.
You will also be able to find out more about our MSc in Economics, Accounting and Finance programme by visiting the link provided.
Your first day will be on Monday 18 September 2017 and you should make sure you have arrived in Bristol before this compulsory start date as registration takes place on the same day. At registration you will receive your first week’s timetable – make sure you are available as you can expect a variety of activities to take place.
I am really looking forward to welcoming you but if you have any questions or queries in the meantime, the Graduate Studies Admissions Team will be more than happy to help you.
In particular, if, for any reason, you anticipate having difficulty reaching any of the conditions of your offer, then please get in touch as soon as possible – we realise this can be a stressful time and the Admissions Team are there to support and advise you as much as possible.
