Economics Plus: looking beyond money, markets and regulations and becoming an economist that can tackle complex economic issues in today's fast-changing, globalising world.
We challenge you to look at Economics differently and to discover that it is much more than money, markets and regulations. Economists also examine consumers', businesses' and governmental financial behaviour and decision-making. Decisions as to where and why to spend money are fundamental in economics. And because reasoning is not always rational, it's important to have a clear understanding of thought processes. Having an eye for all these facets will give you a strong basis to tackle the complex economic issues in today's fast-changing globalising world. Simply put, our Master's programme in Economics will put you ahead of the game.
You choose one of our seven specialisations in Economics:
Gain the skills and knowledge required to become a professional in the domains of auditing, accountancy, controlling and financial management/consulting.
Focus on the financial management and governance of firms and learn how to deal with not just economic but also managerial, legal, and reporting aspects to strengthen and maximise enterprise value.
Learn to analyse and develop policy which solves micro, meso an macroeconomic issues, both for public and private organisations.
Analyse and understand the working of (global) financial markets. This includes aspects like financial risk management, asset pricing and monetary policy.
Require insights from both economics and business studies and prepare yourself for a career at an international operating business firm.
Analyse and compare the economic development of developing countries, with a special focus on the low and middle income countries of the Global South.
Uncover the economic and political dimensions of global issues and power struggles behind policy choices. Learn to understand and explain the world from the perspectives of different stakeholders.
