Program description

University of Pretoria Master Programs

MPhil in Economics (Coursework) in South Africa

The MPhil Economics (Coursework) is a full-time postgraduate program run by the University of Pretoria. The Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences is one of the largest Faculties at the University of Pretoria. The Econometrics Faculty aims to continuously strengthen its position as the leading institution in the fields of economic, financial and management sciences through its academic and research excellence. At the same time the Faculty remains committed to delivering competent, creative, responsible and productive citizens – the “Thought Leaders” of the University of Pretoria and South Africa’s future business leaders. 

Postgraduate programs introduce increasing levels of specialization into the major disciplines from the honors to masters to doctoral levels. As the faculty is mainly a professional faculty, students tend to pursue degrees to the level required by the accrediting professional bodies, usually an honors or a masters degree.

The faculty has introduced a number of new masters programs by coursework in areas of specialization where there is an increasing demand for skills in the market place. All doctoral degrees are based purely on research although the attendance of a number of modules/seminars may be required as a prerequisite. The faculty strives to obtain as many postgraduate bursaries as possible. The Postgraduate Bursary Committee and the Academic coordinator in the faculty office identify bursary opportunities and builds relationships with institutions such as Gauteng Treasury, MassMart and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.
