Essex’s MSc Economics with Data Analytics is suitable for students who want to learn and analyse pressing economic problems using advanced data analytic techniques. The Department of Economics and the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering have created a joint course that allows students to develop the economic and computational tools to not just isolate problems but also develop sophisticated evidence-based answers. On this course, students will learn the essentials of economics, so they can build a grounding to analyse economic problems, students will then build on this knowledge with programming skills. Essex combines these two approaches in a series of applications that allow them to access and process big data using advanced econometrics and also apply computational techniques to questions of financial economics and macroeconomics. Topics covered in this course include: Computational Models for Microeconomics and Finance; Computational Macroeconomics and Policy Design; Microeconometrics; Applications of Data Analysis.
