A Master of Science or MSc is the next step in a post-secondary education in a discipline that typically focuses on science and mathematics. It generally takes around two years of full-time study to complete such a program.

What is an MSc in Economics? This program of study encompasses markets and the forces that affect them. It includes supply and demand as well as taxes, trade policies, and trends. The study of those facets of production and consumption may help people understand the transfer of wealth and debt and how to positively impact it. Economics can also be termed the study of decision-making, since the goal of many programs is to properly regulate markets in order to achieve the best results.

The benefits of an MSc in Economics are far-reaching. Not only will you likely learn skills such as how to apply historical trends to the present day in order to accurately predict market conditions, but you may learn personal finance skills and time management as well. These skills can help you in your personal life as well as your professional one.

The cost of a degree program varies by location and school. Contact your school of choice to determine an estimate of expenses specific to your program.

Careers in economics range the full spectrum. You could choose to work in the private sector, perhaps as a stockbroker or personal wealth advisor. Government positions are also available with a master’s degree; financial advisors often have a large influence over tax and trade policies. Alternatively, you might choose to go into business for yourself as a consultant or advisor. The field of education offers options as well, as you might choose to work on staff at a university as a professor or perhaps publish your thoughts in a trade publication or online.

Schools around the world offer degree programs including MSc in Economics, both in a traditional classroom setting and online. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

This Master programme is designed to meet the increasing demand for professionals with top quality skills in the private sector as well as in international organizations and the public sector, in Sweden and all over the world. The largest share of students who have specialized in Economics in Göteborg are working in the private sector, and many of them are working abroad. The Master of Science education implies an additional step compared to the bachelor education in economics. It provides both a deeper analytical education in general as well as better opportunities to specialize and achieve practically useful skills. In a knowledge-based society, a Bachelors Degree is often not sufficient to compete for the most attractive jobs, and to have a Masters Degree is rapidly becoming a necessity. The Master courses aim to impart deeper knowledge and understanding, including awareness about economic conditions and developing tendencies, thereby enabling you to apply economic theory as well as concrete empirical tools, including various software programmes, to critically analyze current problems. We offer specialization in Development Economics, Environmental Economics, Health Economics, Historical Economics and Industrial Economics, but you may tailor the programme in accordance with your own choice. Please note that students are selected based on GMAT or GRE General test score. Read less
