Economic Studies

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

An exciting and unique field, economics and administration involves the study of both the larger economy and individual behavior within that economy. An advanced knowledge of economics plus training in business, finance and public policy afford many career opportunities for experts to assist both public and private sector organizarions.

Russia (Russian: Россия) is by far the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area. The former State Committee for Higher Education in Russia financed 240 universities, academies and institutes, making Russia a solid country to study in.

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...
