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 Ph.D. program in economics.
In the last five years, our students have been placed in top Ph.D. programs in Economics (University of Minnesota, University College London, European University Institute, among others), in leading financial institutions and consulting firms (e.g. European Investment Bank, BBVA Research, Bearing Point, Compass Lexecon), and in government agencies and ministries (e.g. AIReF, Irish Fiscal Advisory Council).
The Master is a full-time, one-year program (60 ECTS) during which students take 6 mandatory courses in 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.
