What is a Master in Business Economics?  This field of study is a branch of business that focuses specifically on the application of economics as it relates to the operation of a company. Business economics students often take a combination of courses from both economics and business programs. Additionally, there are many required socio-political studies, including anthropology, psychology, and public economics.

Business is one of the most rewarding fields to build a career in, but it can be an industry that’s difficult to break into. Studying business economics benefits students by providing a unique angle of focus that often makes them appealing to companies. Master’s degree holders usually earn much higher salaries and are often more sought after.

The cost of earning a master’s degree can vary quite a bit. The school and program you choose will influence tuition and other costs. Your country of study also changes the cost. Before you enroll in a business economics program, it is quite wise to research the required expense.

Most of the careers available to graduates of the business economics field are in analytics. Economic experts help gauge the market, make recommendations, and influence decision-making. It is possible to work as an investment advisor, market research specialist, business analyst, or bank manager. If you are interested in management, it is also possible to become a director of finance. Master’s degrees are usually required to begin high-level business economics jobs.

A country’s prosperity depends on its competitiveness which is based on its productivity in producing goods and services. Agents such as consumers, firms, counties and public sector agencies play an important part in creating value and supporting their economic development as well as that of their country, region or county. To achieve competitiveness public officers must learn how to allocate scarce resources among the various options. The allocation of resources is determined by interactions in markets. While good macroeconomic policies, stable legal and political institutions, and improving social conditions create the potential for competitiveness, wealth is actually created at the microeconomic level. This course explores the determinants of competitiveness and successful economic development viewed from a bottom-up, micro-level perspective. It is designed to enable public managers both in central government and county government to hone a unique set of skills that will help them play a catalytic role in enhancing county and public sector competitiveness towards sustained economic growth.

The MEP is based on academic science and aimed to research perspective. The main tendency of scientific knowledge in XX-XXI centuries is the drift to complex systems and stochastic processes research. It affected research methods, results, and understanding of science destination per se. Economics as a social science reflects this tendency to the full extend. As a famous economist W. Baumol said, the most impressing results since early 1900th were achieved rather in empirical and applied researches than in theoretical novelty. However general scientific trends take specific dimensions for economic science in accordance to its subject and methods. Another famous economist – A. Marshall – has defined economics as dealing with ordinary operation of human society; it‘s studying individual and collective actions about making and using material basis of wealth. It means study of wealth from the one hand and study of a human – from the other. Nowadays the economists got into social phenomena deep enough to investigate such a complicated effects Marshall could not imagine. They study not only ordinary but nonordinary social phenomena; not only material but immaterial basis of wealth. The main purpose of economic research today is to find quantitative relationships for economic variables. Economics has very as powerful and diverse math toolset as to be a matter of research per se. Aim of the MEP “Quantitative Economics” is to train highly qualified analysts and researchers, who are ready to use advanced tools for theoretic and applied research both for economic science and analytics for...
