Programme overview

This programme aims to take graduate students with only a limited knowledge of economics, management and/or finance and provide them with an understanding of the key concepts and contemporary issues in the field.

You will read and assess the current literature in the main areas of economics, management and finance and form independent, informed judgements about it. You will then plan and embark on a programme of independent research (under appropriate supervision), undertaking a thorough literature review in a prescribed topic area or analysing economic, management or financial data and relating the results to theory.

The School of Economics, Finance and Management aims to provide excellence in teaching and learning within a stimulating research environment.

I chose Bristol because of its outstanding academic reputation. It's reassuring to be taught by people who truly love their subject - their passion becomes contagious.
