The main aim of the two-year MA program is education in all basic areas of theoretical and empirical economics, which will provide graduates with high-quality preparation for joining an already running Ph.D. program in Economics, or for direct application in practice as economic analysts and consultants. The program focuses on key areas of economic theory and econometrics, along the lines of top European Master in Economic Research programs offered at the London School of Economics, the University of Cambridge, or Tilburg University. The general knowledge output of the graduate will be knowledge of advanced mathematical methods and both passive and active use of English.
The program’s graduates will have mastered complex technical tools enabling them to independently conduct theoretical and empirical research in economics. Graduates gain knowledge of advanced microeconomic, macroeconomic, and econometric models and specialized knowledge of advanced theoretical and econometric methods, as well as knowledge of state-of-the-art economic research in their chosen area of expertise. Graduates further gain knowledge of advanced mathematical methods, the ability to use statistical and computational programs and to both passively and actively use English in order to carry out economic professions at the international level, and the ability to present research results in both oral and written form at a high academic level.
