The two-year MSc programme in Economics and Management gives students an in-depth knowledge of a range of economics and management disciplines. The programme is flexible, giving the students the opportunity to specialise in a specific field or in a combination of economics and management topics.  

Researchers in the programme work in the fields of accounting, finance, macroeconomics, microeconomics, econometrics, and economics of business. The MSc programme allows students to create a personal academic profile within one or across several of these fields. Progress in the chosen courses is closely followed and monitored to ensure the students’ academic development. Each semester, the department offers about thirty elective courses. The broad range of courses allows you to specialise in a particular field of interest and to compose an individual course programme.

Career Opportunities  

Economics and management graduates are in very high demand on the labour market. Many graduates achieve top executive positions in the corporate world (e.g. in financial institutions and consulting firms) or management advisory positions in the public sector (e.g. in ministries and local authorities).

The department offers a special transitional arrangement for honours students who wish to continue their research training in the PhD programme.
