The MSc in economics programme is designed to meet the increasing demand for professionals with top quality skills in the private sector as well as in international organizations and the public sector, in Sweden and all over the world.

A recent study showed that the employment rate among students with an advanced undergraduate degree in Economics from Gothenburg was close to a 100 percent. The largest share works in the private sector, and many of them work abroad. Some continue with Ph.D. studies. Most of the graduates have advanced positions where they make use of the skills they achieved during their studies.

The programme uses the same academic structure followed by universities all around the world. As a result, students with degrees from universities in many different countries are admitted and students can study part of the programme abroad. After graduation, the students apply for jobs or continue to pursue a Ph.D. at universities all around the world.
