MA in Economics program CEU Central European University, Business programs
The first year of the program serves as an introduction to the core areas of standard economics and provides a firm foundation for further studies. The second year offers advanced and specialized field courses that students choose according to their research interests.
Before the beginning of the Fall term of the first year (during the mandatory pre-session), students may take waiver examinations in each of the core sequences (of Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Econometrics). The waiver exams cover the material from the entire core sequence. Students who pass all three waiver examinations can directly enter the second year and have to take 24 credits, of which two courses have to be taken from Advanced Microeconomics1, Advanced Macroeconomics1, and Intermediate Econometrics. Students who pass some but not all three waiver examinations get credits (but not grades) for the courses in the relevant sequence.
