About this program

Master's program in Economics

Economics Plus: looking beyond money, markets and regulations and becoming an economist that can tackle complex economic issues in today’s fast-changing, globalizing world.

We challenge you to look at Economics differently and to discover that it is much more than money, markets and regulations. Economists also examine consumers’, businesses’ and governmental financial behavior and decision-making. Decisions as to where and why to spend money are fundamental in economics. And because reasoning is not always rational, it’s important to have a clear understanding of thought processes. Having an eye for all these facets will give you a strong basis to tackle the complex economic issues in today’s fast-changing globalizing world. Simply put, our Master’s program in Economics will put you ahead of the game.

Master's specializations include:

  • Accounting and Control
  • Corporate Finance and Control
  • Economics, Behavior and Policy
  • Financial Economics
  • International Business
  • International Economics and Development
  • International Political Economy
