Economic growth, innovation and entrepreneurship are areas of intense research in a number of countries. This programme combines the three areas, meeting a need in analytical and planning work for the ability to merge knowledge about economic modelling and the role of innovation and entrepreneurship with empirical evidence of economic change across time and space.
The programme provides knowledge about theories of economic growth and innovation, as well as insights into the historical evidence of economic growth and innovation, the spatial dimensions of economic growth and innovation and entrepreneurial activity and the commercialisation of innovations. Students will acquire the ability to critically assess reports and scientific literature as well as the ability to carry out investigations and analyses within the field.
Choose between one year or two years
The full programme comprises two years of full-time study, but there will be a provision to leave after one year with a Master of Science (60 credits).
A creative and innovative environment
At Lund University you will experience a unique atmosphere with informal relationships between students and professors, where personal initiative and innovative and critical thinking are not only encouraged but also expected. This academic approach proves to be an asset when graduates later step out into the world of work, having grown both as professionals and individuals.
Graduates will qualify for any profession that requires intellectual judgement, evaluation and analysis of economic facts and ideas, and good communication skills. Graduates are particularly well equipped for analytical and planning work in government and international organisations, as well as for work in non-governmental organisations and consultancy.
