The MSc in Economics allows you to deepen your knowledge of economics, providing you with the quantitative and conceptual skills that will enable you to start an impactful career, whether you plan to go straight to the job market or to pursue an academic career.
The program follows rigorous international standards. Classes are small, taught by internationally recognized professors and industry experts, and focused on advanced economic knowledge and applied techniques. The program is suited to students with both applied interests and more research-oriented profiles.
You will need to take the mandatory courses, as well as a major of your choice. We offer three applied majors (Macroeconomic Policy, Public Policy and Regulation, and Finance and Banking) and one more theoretical major (General Economics). At the same time, you will be prepared for the workplace with Career Accelerator Lab activities and internship opportunities. Finally, you will work on your thesis project and be ready to launch your professional career. The program offers opportunities for an immersion in top economic institutions, in either internships or thesis development.
The program usually lasts three semesters, with the first two devoted to coursework (60 ECTS) and the third to the development of a master thesis (30 ECTS). For students wishing to do an internship or an exchange semester, they should do so in their third semester, and spend a fourth semester on their thesis.
The MSc in Economics also gives you also the opportunity to pursue a Double Degree or a Joint Degree at a top international school, or an exchange semester.
