Why this programme?

Many societal issues have an economic dimension, so economic theory can be used to analyse them and look for possible solutions. This Master’s programme provides an in-depth examination of economic theory and its application in the real world, covering areas such as sustainable development, the environment, financial systems and international trade, and competition and regulation. Your studies will not only provide subject-specific knowledge, but you will also increase your skill set in areas such as making presentations, scholarly writing and programmes, enhancing your ability to work with and analyse complex materials.
