Program Description:

The Master of Economics programme offers students with a Bachelor's degree a theoretical framework, allowing them to provide well-grounded answers to socio-economic questions. As an economist, you will observe the various players (individuals, companies, domestic and foreign governments) and their interactions within the global economy. You will be able to interpret the general economic situation in a wider social and legal context. This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.
