"I found very good friends here and enjoy meeting different people from different countries. The international atmosphere is very enjoyable for me and I also like Scottish people who are very kind and friendly. The education is also very interesting - I like the way the professors teach us. Overall, I'm very satisfied with living and studying in Glasgow."

"Aside from being able to study in depth a certain field within economics of my interest, what I enjoyed most was the dissertation and the process that was involved with it. You get to see not only the setbacks and complications that are experienced by all researchers but also the reward when you finally have your finished piece of work."

"I am now working as an economist in a nuclear energy research and design institute in St Petersburg, Russia, which I consider to be only the first step in my career. I am planning to do a PhD in Energy Economics once I have obtained a certain amount of work experience; naturally, in this respect the MSc was an essential step. In my current job, I am not using the knowledge that I gained from the programme because it was highly academic and theoretical while the work I am involved in is, on the contrary, purely practical and quite technical (generating profit-and-loss and cash-flow statements of the institute).
This Masters programme offers training in the core areas of macroeconomics, microeconomics and financial economics. It has a specific international macroeconomic and financial economics slant.
