Description

The stereotype economist is a business person in a black suit, but an MSC in Economics offers you a wide variety of other possibilities as well. The recent financial crisis has made it clear that society is in need of good economists who can find solutions to contemporary problems associated with national debt, unemployment, social benefits and much more.

Lose yourself in the fields of mathematics, statistics, microeconomics and macroeconomics and help solve some of the problems that society faces today and in the future. Study economics if you want to deeply understand society and take part in decision making on the macro- and microeconomic levels.

Career Opportunities  

The recent economic crisis has increased the demand for skilled economists enormously. There are infinite career opportunities for an MSc in Economics, such as:
  • Consultant - Work in a private company and find solutions to problems like: “Should we invest in public transport or in highways?” or “How do we get consumers to buy more iPhones?”
  • Government Official - Work within a ministry and work with problems like: “How do we increase trade with China?” or “What can we do to increase the level of investment in green technology?”
  • Politician - Many politicians are economists. The role of a politician is to decide which laws should be implemented to accommodate the proposals from government officials, the public or others.
  • Financial sector - Work in insurance or banking with problems like: “Which asset should we invest in?” or “How do we measure the risk?”
  • Teaching and research - Become a teacher and/or a researcher - teach young prospective economists and contribute to modern Economic Theory.
