Program description

COVID-19

ISEG Lisbon is taking all measures with health and safety of our community as a top priority. Since March we're operating 100% online, engaging virtually and using online tools for learning and evaluation. ISEG Lisbon is fully commited to ensure safety of our candidates for next intake, and we're preparing everything to welcome you all in September.

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.
