    The Master in Economics provides students with a working knowledge of the main tools of quantitative economics. It is directed to graduates in economics, mathematics, and engineering, as well as to graduates in social sciences with a taste for rigorous analysis. The program prepares students to pursue a professional specialization in one of the different fields of economics, leading to a career in government agencies, international organizations, or the private sector. It serves as well as a first step to students who plan to pursue a research career by enrolling into a PHD program in economics.

    The Master is a full time one year program (60 ECTS), during which students take 6 mandatory courses in the Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, and Econometrics, and complete their studies with three optional specialized courses on the topics of their professional interest. In addition, students must complete a Master’s thesis.

    International Complement

    Qualified students could apply for financial support by the Erasmus Program

     

    At the end of the regular master program, students may opt to spend a placement period of 3-6 months in another European school studying complementary disciplines, such as Marketing, Finance, Management, Information Systems or Accountancy, or just deepen into Economics.

    Having the opportunity to go to another European university within an international program allows the students to complement their training, in addition to having the experience of living in a different country, as well as in a different university environment.

    Students receive formal recognition for their academic study period abroad in the transcript of records and in the degree certificate.

    Currently, the University has exchange agreements at Master level in the area of Economics and Business Administration with the following universities:
