Econometrics is used in every area of economics, from business and finance to macro- and micro-economics. It focuses on using quantitive analysis to aid economic and management decision-making. Do you want to pursue an academic career, or to have a professional career in research within economic organisations or businesses? Then applying for the two-year master’s programme in Economic and Financial Research with a track in Econometrics will give you the edge. You’ll learn to use techniques from statistics, mathematics and computer science to solve complex problems for governments, financial institutions, logistics companies and other organisations. You'll combine these techniques with research methods and practical research experience.
