Program Description
EFMD Equis Accredited

Master's in Economics

NHH Norwegian School of Economics

Degree: MSc in Economics and Business Administration
ECTS credits: 120
Duration: two years

The programme will give you the skills to analyse markets and industries and the economic challenges facing private business, public institutions and the development in countries and regions. It will provide you with important perspectives for understanding an increasingly globalised economy.

Understanding economic mechanisms is vital for the success of business and the design of public policy and this master’s programme offers a thorough and comprehensive education in economic theory and econometrics. You will be equipped to analyse core economic questions such as:

  • What are the effects of the financial crisis?
  • Why are some mergers not profitable?
  • Is taxing wealth a good idea?
  • How fast should oil resources be exploited?


    You will learn what motivates and drives decisions for individuals, companies, competitors and authorities - and what determines prices, returns and economic conditions.


    SPECIALIST AREAS
    The programme provides students with basic analytical skills in macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics.

  • Macroeconomics: covers areas such as business cycles, inflation and economic growth in a national and global perspective, including monetary and fiscal policy.
  • Microeconomics: focuses on consumer behaviour and strategic interaction between companies in markets with imperfect competition and on how information and uncertainty affect decision-making.
  • Econometrics: applies statistical methods to economic data in order to analyse economic themes with a focus on regression analysis and extensive use of practical lab exercises.


    The programme also offers also a range of courses that allow you to focus on subject areas you find particularly interesting, such as:

  • Behavioural Economics
  • Industrial Economics
  • Development Economics
  • Labour Economics
  • Resource and Environmental Economics

The advanced courses will qualify for a master's with "Research Distinction". Students who are planning to pursue a PhD are encouraged to select at least two advanced courses.
