    Presentación

    This programme is offered either full and part time basis

    The MSc Development Economics is taught by a team of internationally-respected development economists with a vast amount of experience in the field. Specifically, the use of experimental and behavioural economics puts this group in the forefront of innovative development research internationally. In addition to the global recognition with publication in top academic journals, their research was recognised as internationally excellent in the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).

    The programme applies rigorous economic analyses to real-world problems, like poverty and underdevelopment, to identify effective policies. International development organisations and agencies (for example, the World Bank, IMF, DFID, Oxfam, Action Aid, WIDER) increasingly recognise that the study of economic development in a world that is experiencing rapid globalisation requires an approach that is analytically rigorous and, at the same time, problem- and policy-oriented.
