Master’s programme in Economics

MSc in Business and Economics, major in Economics | 2 years | 120 credits

The Master’s programme in Economics opens doors to a wide range of careers as an economist, consultant, analyst and advisor and graduates are able to pursue careers in both the public and private sector.

The programme provides you with deep and thorough knowledge of modern economic theories, concepts, techniques, and their applications. You will acquire the necessary skills to undertake advanced economic analysis and become familiar with state-of-the-art research.

The first year is designed to give you a sound understanding of the basic methods of advanced economics and to teach you important tools for handling data and performing econometric analysis (using, for example, STATA and MATLAB).

Throughout the latter part of the programme, you have the opportunity to specialise in a specific field of interest. The programme offers a wide range of elective courses, which enables you to both get a broad knowledge of economics and a deepened knowledge within your field of interest.

We offer a high-quality learning experience. The lecturers are dedicated to teaching but also research active, ensuring you access to the latest developments in their fields.

Taken together, the programme equips you with a comprehensive package of knowledge, skills, and tools crucial for understanding and analysing the key economic issues of today and tomorrow.

The programme equips us with the necessary quantitative skills in mathematics, statistical methods, and econometrics to test theories, carry out policy analysis, and pursue original research at the PhD level. Besides economics, you learn to work in a truly international environment and adapt to different cultures and ways of working. The workload is high and the pace is incredibly fast. The relationships between professors and students is, unlike in many other countries, very warm and informal. The professors are always available for students.
