Course content

Radboud University offers seven Master’s specialisations in Economics. When choosing a specialisation it’s important to realise that each specialisation may lead to very different future prospects. Each with its own unique challenges and charm. Do you want to immerse yourself in the nitty-gritty of a company’s finances? Or would you prefer to understand financial markets and perhaps be the one that discovers how they can be tamed? Or are you more interested in the economies of developing countries that offer great challenges but also surprising potential?

Specialisations of the Master’s programme in Economics

Change perspective

Radboud University challenges you to look at Economics differently and to discover that within all specialisations this field is much more than money, markets and regulations. Economists also examine consumers’, businesses’ and governmental financial behaviour and decision-making. Their decisions as to where and why they spend money is fundamental in economics. And because their reasoning is not always rational, it’s important to have a clear understanding of thought processes. We therefore include aspects of sociology and psychology in our programme, and we look at our field from a cultural, legal and even philosophical perspective.

Having an eye for all these facets will give you a much better basis to tackle the complex economic issues in today’s fast-changing globalising world than when you just focus on numbers and methods. Simply put, Radboud University’s Master’s programme in Economics will put you ahead of the game.
