Master of Science


The master's degree program Economics, which is taught in English, conveys to students the analytical and methodological knowledge, models, and problem-solving approaches for key societal challenges. The program is theoretically well-grounded, research-oriented, and covers all content areas of economics. It provides students with advanced knowledge of mathematics, statistics, econometrics and other relevant fields, enabling them to understand complex economic models and judge the relevance and limitations of economic theories. Students are successively introduced to current topics and debates in economic research and have the opportunity to apply their knowledge to a broad spectrum of economic topics.

The contents and methodologies of this degree program are deliberately oriented towards the future, addressing among others changes in markets driven by digitalization and internationalization. Students build solid and advanced knowledge of the core areas of macro- and microeconomics, financial economics and econometrics. In addition, students are gradually introduced to the latest research through research seminars in which they discuss new research results and work on their own research projects.
