Why this programme?
Econometricians use their mathematical and statistical expertise to sift through mountains of economic data in order to find trends. This ability has an enormous number of applications for business, government and research throughout the world, including:
- making companies run smoothly
- increasing profit sustainably
- predicting financial trends
- understanding how people’s behaviour affects the market
- dealing with wider economic issues and crises
All of these practical applications make Economics and Operations Research a booming field with huge prospects for graduates. The School of Business and Economics not only helps you become a well-trained econometrician, but we also immerse you in an interpersonal, intercultural and international setting that gives you an extra edge in an increasingly globalised world.
