Three universities participate in this course: the University of Oviedo, the University of Cantabria and the University of the Basque Country. The Master has a duration of one academic year, that is, 60 ECTS credits. The teaching period of the master is divided into three terms. The Master's program includes a first block of compulsory subjects, totaling 12 ECTS credits, which will be taught during the first seven weeks in all universities, whose function is to level the basic knowledge of students in Macroeconomics, Microeconomics and Econometrics . During the rest of the first term and in the following two, a series of optional subjects are offered, which are taught in a single center, of which the student will choose a total of 36 credits. The remaining 12 credits correspond to the Master's Final Project.
In order to take advantage of the existing complementarities between the subjects offered at the three universities, the student must take a minimum of 3 credits at each of the other two participating universities outside of their reference University. Likewise, to facilitate the choice of optional subjects based on their professional preferences, six academic paths or orientations have been established: Industrial Economics, Game Theory and Environmental Economics, Policy Evaluation, Labor Economics, Economic Policies of the European Union and Technical Quantitative in Economics.
