MSc Econometrics / Overview
Year of entry: 2017
- Degree awarded
- 12 months full-time, 24 months part-time.
- Entry requirements
UK 2:1 Hons degree (or overseas equivalent) in economics/econometrics/agricultural economics or a related subject for direct MSc entry.
Applicants with a UK 2:2 (or overseas equivalent) in economics/econometrics/agricultural economics or a related subject may be considered for entry onto the MA Economics.
In addition to the normal supporting documents, applicants for the MSc Econometrics must also supply the following:
- A brief description of any macro & micro-economics/econometrics/mathematics/statistics courses taken on your undergraduate degree, detailing core texts used. This does not have to be an official document. A paragraph for each course unit taken and a brief list of the main textbooks used will be sufficient. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED UNTIL WE RECEIVE THE ABOVE INFORMATION.
MATHS & STATS PREPARATION FOR THE MSc
1. Please visit our Introduction to Quantitative Methods in Economics page where you will find information about the minimum level of knowledge of mathematics and statistics that you should possess from your current or previous training.
2. On the same website, please look at the details and content of our Pre-Session course on mathematics and statistics which builds on the knowledge resumed in (1) and which is designed to equip you with further technical skills that you will require before starting the MSc. You are strongly advised to attend this course which is offered, free of charge. The course will run during induction week and we recommend that you spend some time between now and September 2015 studying and familiarising yourself with the course material on the website, especially if you might not be able to attend the course.

- Are you looking for a simple way to convert your quantitative undergraduate degree into econometrics, taking classes in statistics, mathematics and at the Alliance Manchester Business School?
- Are you keen to train in modern econometrics and pursue a career as a professional econometrician?
- Do you have your sights set on further studies in econometrics at MRes or PhD level and exposure to research-led econometric theory and methods?
This course provides advanced instruction and rigorous training in econometric theories and the relevant methods of empirical research
Although similar to the MSc in Economics and Econometrics, this course differs in that macroeconomic and microeconomic theory are not compulsory course units, but units in time-series econometrics and micro-econometrics are compulsory.
By the end of the programme, you should be able to understand and apply the basic principles behind the theory of econometrics, and apply these techniques to real data using packages such as Stata and PC Give, and employ more advanced computational tools using Gauss.
