Master´s programme / Master of Science in Economics
The Master in Economics enables students to perfect their knowledge and understanding of the issues that influence economic activity, with particular emphasis on production and distribution of wealth. The programme covers various areas, such as international trade and the public economy, through inter alia the analysis of quantitative models. It focuses on studying global economic growth and its underlying factors, such as the unequal distribution of wealth among countries and sovereign debt. It also examines topics as varied as consumption, the job market and the inner workings of international markets. Students may follow a general economics curriculum or chose from among five concentrations.
