About MSci Economics with Innovation

The innovators of the 21st century will bring together arts, science, engineering, humanities and enterprise to deliver innovative products, services and ways of living. They will be team players with skills and qualities that enable them to work across specialisms and cultures.

This course combines in-depth subject specialism in economics with interdisciplinary breadth, creative teamwork and entrepreneurial skills. Alongside your economics studies, you will apply your subject knowledge by translating ideas into plans for digital and creative enterprises, both social and commercial.

Our School of Economics pioneers the innovative ‘core econ’ approach to teaching economics, which seeks to reconnect the study of economics with our experience of real life. This exciting, technically rigorous course puts emphasis on statistical analysis and is informed by the school’s research which achieved 100 per cent 4* ‘world-leading’ rating for research impact (REF 2014). You will become skilled in understanding economic concepts and applying formal models and econometrics tools to test behavioural predictions using real-world data.

As part of the School of Economics you will also have access to the Professional Liaison Network through which you can participate in mentoring schemes with professional economists, while the Inside Track lecture series gives you an insight into a range of relevant sectors.

You will come together with students from other innovation disciplines, such as computer science and geography, to learn and apply design and systems thinking to digital and creative ideas. You will work in transdisciplinary teams to put these ideas into practice, ultimately creating new ventures together.

Please note, the admissions statement for this course will be available online in summer 2019.
