    Say if I want continue economics to a masters level, or do something like finance or an MBA or even politics.

    Will having a joint degree, as opposed to a pure econ degree - affect my chances of getting into a good masters course?

    For economics it will if you haven't covered enough macro/micro/metrics.

    As yoyo says it is unlikely to affect it for a politics or business type course. If you want to do a straight Economics masters then you might find yourself being asked to do a Graduate Diploma year.

    Its when you have to do a conversion course year before going on to MSc. Basically if you haven't done enough core economic theory you do a course made up of 2nd/3rd year undergrad modules. Then you can do MSc. Used a lot with overseas students where the uni is unsure of the level at which they have been taught.
