MSc in Economics

A two-year programme in Economics

The programme provides you with deepened and thorough knowledge of modern economic theories, concepts and techniques and their applications. You will acquire the necessary tools to undertake advanced economic analysis and gain specialised knowledge in your specific field of interest. You will also become familiar with major and recent literature in your particular field of specialisation and learn important research techniques.

Some minor changes will be implemented as of the autumn term 2017, such as a compulsory first term. The changes will be incorportated on relevant web-pages in January/February 2017 (or earlier). See programme curriculum to the rigth.

 

The programme is designed to give students a sound knowledge in the basic methods of advanced economics, allow them to specialise in a specific area of interest and enable them to apply their knowledge to analyse real world problems. The second year of the programme further deepens this knowledge, broadens the areas of interest and/or introduces the student to research methods.Within the programme you can choose from different specialisations. There is no requirement of following a specific profile (that is, one can take specialisation courses from different profiles), but it is highly recommended. A designated profile will give you a specialised area in Economics and by following one of the recommended structures you will also be well prepared for the master essay.

The follwing recommended profiles are offered:

  • Econometrics
  • Financial Economics
  • International and Development Economics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Microeconomics
  • Public Economics with Health and Labour Economics.
