DescriptionThe International Master of Science in Quantitative Economics (IMSQE) is an elite programme at the Department of Economics and Business Economics at Aarhus BSS. Students tailor their own study programme on the basis of a range of advanced courses with a quantitative orientation, including selected PhD-level courses. The programme requires strong analytical skills in quantitative methods, and there are special requirements regarding the level and qualitative content of written assignments. A particular emphasis is placed on the students’ analytical and quantitative skills.
Learning Objectives and AimsThe IMSQE programme provides its students with a number of outstanding qualifications. You will acquire analytical skills at a very high level. You will therefore be able to apply the methods you have learnt to new cases, to formulate new theories, to formulate and test hypotheses, and to reflect upon the validity and relevance of various scientific methods and substantive theories within the field. To do this, students need to be able to think independently, not just to reproduce known material.
The aim of the IMSQE programme is to provide candidates with advanced-level training within the analytical, quantitative disciplines of macroeconomics, microeconomics, economics, econometrics, and finance and accounting. The IMSQE programme aims to recruit within quantitative economics and management in competition with such leading institutions as the London School of Economics, Oxford University, and Cambridge University.
Working in an International EnvironmentGraduates who complete the IMSQE programme acquire analytical skills at a very high level. These are in increasing demand. Potential future employers of these graduates are international and Danish organisations, consulting firms, ministries and government agencies, and financial institutions such as commercial banks, mortgage institutions, pension funds, insurance companies and investment banks.
The IMSQE programme also provides an excellent opportunity for candidates to continue their studies at PhD level. For students who wish to continue on to the PhD programme, a special arrangement is provided to bridge the transition from the IMSQE programme to research training.
