Quantitative Economic Methods (Fast Track)

Our Quantitative Economic Methods short course looks at a wide range of quantitative techniques in conjunction with some key economic principles, in order to provide a grounding that is essential for anyone considering taking a degree in pure economics or finance.

You will usually be expected to have completed Economic Principles prior to enrolment, as this course assumes knowledge of basic economics. You are also expected to have some command of mathematics. The course is very intensive and class time cannot be used to revise elementary mathematical techniques.
