Program description

Monetary and Financial Economics

The Master's in Monetary and Financial Economics (MEMF) is an international-level programme that follows the best European practices in the area. As such, the selection criteria of applicants are demanding and this exigency level is kept along the course. Thus, the MEMF is not compatible with a weak background and with a low-effort profile, as we expect students to be prepared to spend a minimum of 3200 effort hours in 2 years.

The MSc in Monetary and Financial Economics is intended to complement and to deepen first cycle education provided by a degree in Economics or Finance. The main objective is that students learn how to analyze problems in a rigorous and constructive way, developing their ability to assess the contribution of research in Monetary and Financial Economics to solve the problems in the area and to use advanced empirical and theoretical tools in Economics and Finance.
