Is the Master's in Economics for you?

Studying economics gives you an understanding of the world we live in and its inner workings. If you have a natural interest in what makes the world tick, you have a head start. Economists analyse a situation, weigh up the evidence and draw various conclusions for policy action.

A critical, analytical mind and the ability to think logically are crucial, as is having a way with numbers and an affinity for math.

One programme, six tracks

The first block provides you with a solid foundation for all tracks. After choosing your track, you develop numerous skills such as data analysis, problem-solving, and using academic professional literature to provide expert advice.
