Master

Economics

Are you curious about economic issues and their underlying effects on various aspects of our society? Are you internationally minded and engaged by issues and concepts related to cross-border and interregional economics? Are your career goals focused on policy related to both public and private economic sectors? If so, then the master’s programme in Economics might be for you. Economic knowledge is vital to making policy decisions at both the individual and organisation levels of society. The Economics master’s programme first gives you a broad education in the basics of economics, then allows you to tailor your education to your own interests and career goals by offering six specialisations. You will also have the flexibilty to combine courses from the specialisations.

* Please be aware that as of September 2018 we have three new specialisations replacing the current ones
