Course content

The MSc in Economics allows you to deepen your knowledge of economics, providing you with the quantitative and conceptual skills that will enable you to start an impactful career, whether you plan to go straight to the job market or to pursue an academic career.

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.
