Program description

MSc in Economics

The MSc in Economics allows you to deepen your knowledge of economics, providing you with the quantitative and conceptual skills that will enable you to start an impactful career, whether you plan to go straight to the job market or to pursue an academic career.

The program follows rigorous international standards. Classes are small, taught by internationally recognized professors and industry experts, and focused on advanced economic knowledge and applied techniques. The program is suited to students with both applied interests and more research-oriented profiles.

You will need to take the mandatory courses, as well as a major of your choice. We offer three applied majors (Macroeconomic Policy, Public Policy and Regulation, and Finance and Banking) and one more theoretical major (General Economics). At the same time, you will be prepared for the workplace with Leadership Lab activities and internship opportunities. Finally, you will work on your thesis project and be ready to launch your professional career. The program offers opportunities for an immersion in top economic institutions, in either internships or thesis development.

The MSc in Economics also gives you also the opportunity to pursue a Double/Joint Degree at a top international school, or an exchange semester.

Outstanding candidates from other quantitative areas will also be considered, but may be asked to do some background reading before joining the program (for the major in Finance and Banking only candidates with an Economics background will be considered).

Candidates must seek to acquire the conceptual tools and training in quantitative methods to understand economic issues and apply economic reasoning to private business, public policy, or academic research domains.

International exposure (exchange, summer school or internship abroad) and extracurricular achievements are also valued by the Admissions Jury.
