Make the analyses for tomorrow’s decisions! In this programme, interdisciplinary modules in collaboration with firms and organisation help to develop your ability to solve real-world problems by applying suitable economic models and methods of data analysis.
This master's programme in economics continues to build upon what you have learned before by focusing on applications of theories and econometric tools. After a foundation semester containing microeconomics, macroeconomics, mathematics, and econometrics you will embark upon a whole semester consisting of full-time modules on current topics in economics such as environmental economics and transportation economics.
These modules combine economic theories, with econometric tools and real-world examples from firms and organisations. The programme also offers courses in programming and machine learning to improve your data processing and technical skills, as well as a 10-week internship to get more real-world experience.
