The Economics Department at Strathclyde University no longer offers the MSc Economic Management and Policy programme by distance learning to new participants. This web page remains operative for those students currently enrolled on the Open Learning mode of study.
The Open Learning programme is delivered with
full interactive tutor support by means of
a Moodle-based Virtual Learning Environment.
Study for the degree is completely flexible
and entirely online, with no attendance at
Strathclyde being required.
The MSc EMP degree has been Recommended by the UK Government Economic Service.
In progressing towards completion of the MSc, students will undertake the following:
|Postgraduate Certificate in Economic Management and Policy
Four "core" classes make up the first stage of the masters programme (and lead to the Certificate in EMP): Microeconomic Management and Policy ; Macroeconomic Environment; Data Handling and Analysis; Integrative Economics.
|Postgraduate Diploma in Economic Management and Policy
In the next stage four elective classes are taken, leading to the Diploma award. A very wide range of elective classes is available. You may choose to specialise in one of the five pathways offered, or pursue a more general route.
|MSc in Economic Management and Policy
Finally, the MSc is attained by completion of the Final Project, a substantial piece of applied economic analysis that will usually be linked to your work experience or career intentions.
The recent review of Economics teaching at Strathclyde by the Quality Assurance Agency has given us the highest possible rating in each category. The Strathclyde University Business School has achieved EQUIS and AACSB International accreditation, making it one of only 27 business schools world-wide to have achieved recognition from the two leading accreditation bodies for business schools.
