Masters in Business and Economics in Europe 2017. The world we live in is evolving quickly and in a context of increasing uncertainty. One bad economic decision can have dreadful consequences for the welfare of a country, lead to the expulsion of a company from a market or condemn a family to an unpayable debt. Understanding the complexity of the economic situation is essential for improving our understanding of the world that surrounds us. Why do some countries grow generating welfare for their citizens while other fail? What economic policies generate more inequality? Or less? Does the economy determine an election result or is it the election result that determines economic policies? What is the economic cost of corruption? How is it possible to reduce poverty? Is globalisation a good thing? Do financial markets need better regulation? What causes discrimination between men and women? Is it possible to reduce the greenhouse effect? None of these questions can be answered without rigorous economic analysis or without having the quantitative tools needed to carry it out. The Master’s Degree in Economics from the Universitat Jaume I provides key aspects which various studies that analyse trends in the employment market highlight as decisive when it comes to finding a quality job: solid training in data analysis and interpretation techniques, and competence in English. Objectives The objective of the Master’s Degree in Economics is to provide students with advanced, rigorous education in the area of economics. The programme is designed to train students in the use of analytical and quantitative methods for studying economic phenomena. The acquisition of specialised theoretical and practical knowledge in the areas of macroeconomics, microeconomics, quantitative methods and econometrics will improve the students’ analytical skills and their capacity to solve economic problems. Through specialised courses, students will learn to apply and develop the knowledge and capabilities acquired in the core modules. Through the optional subjects, students will be able to specialise more in microeconomics or macroeconomics. On one hand, graduates more interested in individual behaviour may, through the specialisation offered in the programme, acquire the training they need to study phenomena like consumers’ attitudes to a certain product, their preparedness to pay, the role of economic and financial risk in human relations and, in general, everything defining and influencing individuals in their actions as buyers and sellers. Meanwhile, the understanding and study of economic phenomena in an open, globalised environment like the one characterising the world today means that the interrelationships between the different economies need to be taken into consideration. Firstly, the level of interrelationship in the financial markets means that only a joint analysis of them makes sense. Secondly, business activity is carried out in a context in which foreign markets are just as important as local ones, or even more so, making the knowledge of trade patterns and their effect on economic integration processes between countries, trade policies and factor movements, among other relevant aspects, fundamental. The Master’s Degree also provides cross-disciplinary competences, such as the capacity to solve complex problems and the development of analytical and critical thinking, as well as computational and numerical knowledge of information analysis. When their education is complete, students will be capable of carrying out a complete academic project in the area of economics, reporting its results and proceeding to present it and discuss it orally. In this sense, the Master’s Degree also provides a solid educational basis giving them the skills for enrolling on an economics doctoral programme. [-]
