Research master's programmes

A research master’s programme takes two years and consists of coursework, which will provide you with up-to-the-minute knowledge of your chosen research field and of research methods.

The Graduate School of Business and Economics offers two Research Master's programmes:

1.   Business Research

2.   Economic and Financial Research


Research master’s programmes are structured to develop your theoretical and quantitative skills – essential to many professions in business and economics. They consist of core courses, training in research skills and a choice of specialisation courses in your second year, resulting in a master’s thesis.

Apart from the above mentioned Research Master’s programmes the Economics Departments of the School of Business and Economics (SBE) and the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience (FPN) jointly organize the specialization Neuroeconomics within the Research master in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience.
