Are you passionate about research? Take the smart route to your PhD!
How does Economic and Financial Research differ from many of the other master’s programmes on offer? Economic and Financial Research is one of two two-year research master’s programmes. The first year will offer you high-level courses in economics, while your second year will allow you to specialise. The content and scope of these courses adheres to the American standard, which will kick-start your successful career in research. It will also enable you to enrol for a PhD in the United States (or an American PhD offered elsewhere) or work internationally.
Research Assistant Grant
To lighten the financial burden of studying as well as to facilitate the transition from research master’s student to PhD candidate, Maastricht University School of Business and Economics offers Research Assistant positions for which you may receive a grant. You can apply for a Research Assistant position (and the grant) prior to the start of the second year of your MSc Economic and Financial Research.
