About the Program

If you asked us to define our Master’s in Economics in three words, we would use: unique, hands-on and applicable. 

We make sure that we provide state-of-the-art theoretical and empirical techniques, but we also focus on the development and acquisition of the tools required for applied policy analysis. This means econometric and numerical software or modern econometric techniques for the evaluation of policy interventions, to name a few. 

Below you can find more information regarding the basic structure of the program, but remember — you can tailor-make the curriculum according to your interests. Please have a look at the electives (specialize in a specific field), areas of expertise (focus a part of your studies on a particular area of interest) and professional development modules (let’s talk about responsible leadership and creative thinking) sections as well, to make sure that you make this Master's your own.
