The Master’s programme in Economics opens doors to a wide range of careers as an economist, consultant, analyst and advisor and graduates are able to pursue careers in both the public and private sector.

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 state-of-the-art research in each particular field of specialisation and learn important research techniques.

The first year is designed to give you sound knowledge of the basic methods of advanced economics and to allow you to specialise in a specific area of interest, as well as enabling you to apply your knowledge to analyse real world problems. The second year further deepens this knowledge, broadens the areas of interest and introduces you to research methods.

The programme is equipping me with skills that are highly valued in the job market, such as: a strong background in microeconomic and macroeconomic theory, knowledge of economic institutions, and relevant mathematical and statistical techniques to analyse data for effective decision making. We work a lot in groups, and the diversity of our backgrounds brings different ideas and approaches to the table. The programme is equally suitable for graduates looking for positions in the corporate world, as it is for those who want to pursue a PhD.
