One bad economic decision can have dreadful consequences for the welfare of a country, lead to the expulsion of a company from a market or condemn a family to an unpayable debt.

Is globalisation a good thing? Do financial markets need better regulation? What causes discrimination between men and women? Is it possible to reduce the greenhouse effect? None of these questions can be answered without rigorous economic analysis or without having the quantitative tools needed to carry it out. The Master’s Degree in Economics from the Universitat Jaume I provides key aspects which various studies that analyse trends in the employment market highlight as decisive when it comes to finding a quality job: solid training in data analysis and interpretation techniques, and competence in English.
