Compare 14 Masters of Science in Econometrics

For students who are looking for a challenging and rewarding way to advance their education after graduation, a Master of Science (MSc) degree provides great opportunities to expand knowledge in the fields of science, technology, engineering, business, economics, and more. Taking the time to complete MSc courses can yield significant results to open the doors for future careers.

What is an MSc in Econometrics               ? Classes delve into both mathematical economics, which studies mathematical modeling of market occurrences, and econometrics, which focuses on statistical modeling. Students learn how to analyze both microeconomics and macroeconomics. After completing the core classes to build a solid foundation, students go on to specialize in econometrics, financial econometrics, mathematical econometrics, or a combination of these.

After completing the degree, students have the skills necessary to read major economic publications and journals, as well as apply different economic and finance models using modern software technology. People gain a greater understanding of contemporary economic issues and how to analyze them in real world situations, which helps them be proficient in their careers.

The cost can have a major impact on what school students should attend. The price of entry for an econometrics program changes based on the university and its location. Schools of interest should be contacted for specific information concerning cost.

Many people who finish the MSc program find jobs in a variety of different areas. They can work for planning bureaus or government institutions as economic policy researchers. Others obtain careers in the financial sector, working under investment banks or insurance companies. Degree holders can also be consultants or get a position in the computer industry.

Too busy to attend post grad school? Think again. Online classes provide an excellent way to complete an MSc on your own terms. To get started, look through the university listings on our database.

Discover a fascinating scientific discipline

Econometrics & Operations Research is a fascinating scientific discipline which develops quantitative resources and applies them to the analysis of economic problems in their broadest sense. VU University Amsterdam trains students by preparing them for a professional career in which mathematics, statistics, and ICT are applied for the quantitative analysis of many kinds of problems, either from the world of business, finance, economics or of a more general nature.

Specializations

The Master’s Program in Econometrics and Operations Research offers two specializations: Econometrics and Mathematical Economics and Operations Research and Business Econometrics. However, it is not mandatory to specialize; it is possible to combine courses from either specialization to allow students to pursue their own interests. In that case, no specialization will be mentioned on the degree. The two areas of specialization are:... [-]

The program is targeted at students who wish to obtain theoretical and practical knowledge about the mathematics of random events. It is primarily characterized by a balance between rigorous mathematical theory, depth of insight into various fields of the subject (probability, statistics, econometrics) and applications in various areas. The students will obtain a general background by taking compulsory courses in probability, optimization, statistical modeling, and random processes.

They continue by taking elective courses to extend their expertise and choose a specialization they would like to study more deeply. In seminars, they learn to work independently as well as to collaborate on complex projects. Great emphasis is placed on the development of independent analytical thinking. Probability, statistics, and econometrics have a close relationship with other mathematical subjects (mathematical analysis, numerical mathematics, discrete mathematics). Applications are inspired by real problems from economics, medicine, technology, natural sciences, physics, and informatics.... [-]

Would you like to learn how quantitative analysis can support and improve decision making? Then the MSc in Econometrics, Operations Research and Actuarial Studies (EORAS) is the right master for you.

The MSc EORAS program uses mathematical and statistical models to analyze problems in economics, finance, insurance, and related areas. In this program, we address questions such as: How will future employment ratios develop in Europe? How much influence will petrol prices have on car usage? What is the minimal route length to deliver large amounts of parcels? How to calculate a fair premium for a new insurance product? These questions have in common that they relate to a decision-making process and that answering them requires the use of mathematical modeling and data science. In the MSc EORAS program, you will learn how to construct appropriate models, to apply these models to real-life data by means of statistical software, and to design and implement computer algorithms. Importantly, you also learn how to give a proper economic interpretation of the outcomes of quantitative models.... [-]
