A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

Aside from the distinguishing between microeconomics and macroeconomics, students who are studying economics must also learn the difference between positive economics and normative economics. The former deals with that which is, while the later deals with that which ought to be. Other distinguishing characteristics include economic theory and applied economics.

Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a federal state in Western Europe. It is a founding member of the European Union and hosts the EU's headquarters as well as those of several other major international organisations such as NATO.
