This programme is designed to provide training in economic theory, applied economics and quantitative methods of relevance to developing and transitional economies. The programme is especially appropriate for those seeking to practice as development economists whether in government, the private sector, multilateral organisations or NGOs. In addition to studying four compulsory course units, students may specialise in particular areas of the subject via four optional course units and a dissertation. The theory course units provide a thorough training in both contemporary macro- and micro-development theory. Applied and optional course units offer students an opportunity to understand development problems and policy prescriptions within both global and national economic contexts. The quantitative course units, which include an applied development project, enable students to test theories through the use of data sets and provide training in standard econometrics techniques and up-to-date econometrics software packages. Students will also undertake independent research between June and September in the form of an approved dissertation.
