In a globalized world, economists are needed to analyze and come to conclusions on economic conditions in a society in constant change. This programme provides you with the tools you need to work with economic policy challenges.
As a student on the master’s programme in economics, you will be equipped with theoretical and empirical tools for analyzing economic challenges in society, in order to be able to study the interplay between individuals, companies, organizations, countries, and other actors on different markets. The programme gives you an introduction to advanced empirical methods for descriptive statistical analysis, identification of causal effects and economic experiments. Compared to studies at first-cycle level, you will gain a deeper understanding of econometrics and statistics in general. During your third semester, you will have the opportunity to study abroad.
After completing the programme, you will be well prepared to work with analytical, decision-making, counselling, and investigative tasks, skills that you can apply in both the private and public sector. You will also be prepared for studies at third-cycle level since the content of the programme has close ties to research within different parts of the economics subject.
The program is suitable for individuals who want to work with qualified tasks such as investigators and analysts in government, private organizations, companies and banks, etc. The program aims to build a general problem solving ability, which is useful in many different professions.
