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 specialization of your choice. We offer three applied specializations (Macroeconomic Policy, Applied Economics, and Finance and Banking) and one more theoretical specialization (Economic Theory). You will also have the opportunity to pursue our MSc in Economics with no specialization. This option is ideal for students who want to create their own path.
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.
