Post Graduation programme in Internet Economics from the University of Liverpool

Researchers at the University of Liverpool have launched a one-year full time postgraduate degree programme on internet technologies for students pursuing careers in global IT companies, such as Google and Microsoft.

The course has been developed out of an existing programme on game theory, which was the first postgraduate degree course of its kind in Europe when it opened to students last year.

Researchers at the University’s Department of Computer Science and its Management School will work together to provide students with the knowledge of the tools used by companies for applications related to e-commerce and the internet.

Study in this field includes analysis to help understand the influence of online social networks, which can be used for advertising purposes and the modelling of customer behaviour.

Students on the course will gain the skills required by IT industries as well as the knowledge needed by commercial companies that use the internet to advertise and market their services to a wider audience.

This programme is intended for graduates who already have a first degree in Computer Science, or in Economics, or a closely related subject. Alongside the degree programme, students also have the opportunity to participate in the Microsoft IT-Academy Programme, which offers comprehensive IT resources and training. 

This voluntary programme leads to Microsoft Technology Associate certification. The course commences in September 2012.

Admissions are open now until August 2012, but students are advised to apply as early as possible so that all relevant documentation can be processed in time for the start of the course.
