Course content

Teaching at PhD-level

The two-year International Master of Science in Quantitative Economics (IMSQE) MSc programme is an elite fulltime MSc programme at the Department of Economics and Business, Aarhus BSS. Students tailor their own study programme on the basis of a range of advance-level courses with a quantitative orientation and selected PhD-level courses. The programme requires strong analytical skills in quantitative methods and there are special requirements regarding the level an qualitative contents of written assignments.

Learning objectives

The IMSQE programme provides its students with a number of outstanding qualifications. They will acquire analytical skills at a very high level, and they will thus be able to apply the methods that they have learned 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. This implies that the students will be able to go well beyond reproduction of known material, and working independently on new topics within the area will be a core competence of the elite students.

Aims

The purpose of the IMSQE programme is to provide candidates with advanced-level training within the analytical, quantitative disciplines of macroeconomics, microeconomics, economics, econometrics, finance and accounting. The IMSQE programme aims at recruiting candidates within quantitative economics and management internationally in competition with leading institutions such as London School of Economics, Oxford University and Cambridge University.

Candidates completing the IMSQE programme will acquire analytical skills at a very high level which are in increasing demand. Potential future employers of the candidates are Danish as well as international organisations, consulting firms, ministries and government agencies, and financial institutions such as commercial banks, mortgage institutions, pension funds, insurance companies and investment banks. Furthermore, the IMSQE programme provides an excellent opportunity for candidates to continue their studies at PhD level. For students who wish to continue in the PhD programme, a special transitional arrangement will be provided to bridge the transition from the IMSQE programme to research training..
