About the programme
The Master of Economic Policy has an international profile, and focuses on policy-related scientific research. The two modules allow you to shape the programme according to your interests.
During the programme, you'll have plenty of opportunities to integrate practical experience by following guest lectures, taking part in a Career Development Track, attending job fairs, etc.
Besides the four compulsory courses, you can choose one of two modules. Each has a set curriculum.
- Applied Welfare Economics
- Macroeconomic policy
- Applied Econometrics
- Research Methods in Economics
You have a choice between:
- Public Policy: this module focuses on public policies in, for example, labor, environment, health, inequality, and education, emphasizing both efficiency and equity.

The Master’s Thesis is the crowning piece of an academic Master curriculum. Here, you demonstrate your in-depth knowledge of the foundations, structures, and methodologies underpinning the Economic Policy program.
