The MSc in Economics provides students with the conceptual tools and advanced analytic techniques to apply economic reasoning to demanding issues in today's private business, public policy, and academic research domains.
The program follows rigorous international standards. Classes are small, taught by internationally recognized professors and industry experts, and focused on advanced economic knowledge and techniques. The program is suited to students with both applied interests and more research-oriented profiles.
Once the first foundation semester is completed, you can focus on a major. At the same time, prepare for the workplace with Leadership Lab activities and internship opportunities. The Master in Economics gives you the opportunity to pursue a Double Degree or a Joint Degree at a top international school, or a one-semester international exchange.
This program is designed to provide you with the academic knowledge, the technical tools, and the practical skills to succeed in a variety of private and public sector careers. Graduates pursue high level careers in international agencies, regulation and competition bodies, and universities, as well as in consulting, finance, strategy and accounting, among other fields.
