Program Description:

The  Master’s programme in Economics at  Radboud University offers you more than just a Master's degree in Economics; it incorporates relevant knowledge from related disciplines such as psychology and sociology into the programme. The programme offers small-scale teaching and a personal approach to education, since all professors are easily approachable. A major advantage of this programme is its strong methods orientation, which is important to increase our understanding of the world of economics and business. You will be exposed to the most recent academic and practical developments in the field of Economics. 

Scientific and societal relevance reinforce one another. When addressing contemporary issues in economics, like the economic crisis in the EU or investment decisions by a company, it is crucial to evaluate them from an academic perspective. We offer you the tools to understand and evaluate these issues and improve your economic decision making. We teach you how to think independently and critically about the way in which economics can be applied in a professional sense.

Employers are increasingly looking for economists who can tackle a wide variety of economic problems in a professional manner from different perspectives. As you will specialize yourself in one of six sub-disciplines (see below) and study them not only from economics, but also from political and societal points of view, you will be in high demand by employers such as central banks, ministries, (investment) banks, international agencies, consulting firms, pension funds, and accounting firms. Our programme pushes your curiosity to understand, evaluate and where possible improve economic decision making in your professional career afterwards.
