MSc in Finance & Economics, Manchester Business School - KR

Programme overview

The aim of the programme is to provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to take up specialist positions in government, the "city" and industry, or to pursue a research and/or academic career via a PhD in Finance and Economics.

The programme enables you to develop a critical appreciation of both financial and economic theories and the interconnections between the two disciplines. There is considerable emphasis on empirical research methods and you will carry out a significant piece of empirical research to complete your degree.

The programme provides training for a research degree and general training for those who wish to take up specialist positions in banking, government and industry or those who wish to subsequently pursue a research career (eg financial analyst, economist) or an academic career (eg university lecturer) via a PhD in Finance and Economics.

The programme conforms to the present ESRC guidelines for Masters degrees and has ESRC recognition as a postgraduate training year in preparation for undertaking a PhD.

The course teaching is shared by the Manchester Business School and the School of Economics, and delivered through lectures, case studies, seminars and group project-based work.


To gain a place on the MSc Finance and Economics programme you must have top ranking academic results. We are looking for a first class or high upper second class honours degree (overall average 65%+), or the overseas equivalent. We take into account your grade average, position in class, references and the standing of the institution where you are studying or have already attained your qualification when we assess your academic record. We particularly welcome applications from excellent candidates studying at institutions of high ranking and repute.

You need to have studied or be studying a degree in economics, finance or maths. This programme teaches a very high level of economics and advanced econometrics. It is therefore essential that you have taken or are studying a significant number of economics courses and importantly a high level of econometrics, and macroeconomics or microeconomics in the FINAL year of your degree and have excellent results in these subjects. If your degree transcript does not include a list of your final year courses please make sure you provide this information in addition to submitting your transcript, as we are unable to make a decision without this information.

Instead of Saying Goodbye (Ost. Bi),

It's Raining,

It's Raining (Live),

Running Away from the Sun,

Sad Tango,


Free Way,

I do,

Memory in My Hand,

Handshake (Ost. Bi) ,

Move On,

I'm Coming,

My Love (Ost. Sangdoo, Let's go to school),

In My Bed,

With U (Ost Cyborg),

With You (Live)
