You will be able to analyze financial and economic data in a scientific manner.

The 2008 crisis originating in the financial sector had severe consequences for economies and societies worldwide. It is therefore of the utmost importance that decision makers in financial institutions, regulatory offices, and central banks have a sound understanding of economic theory, the financial instruments designed for risk management, and the tools of modern econometric analysis. Consequently, the M.Sc. in Economics and Finance combines the strenghts of our school in economics, finance and econometrics to endow our graduates with the skills needed to address these issues.

Graduating from our program, you will be able to analyze financial and economic data in a scientific manner. You will know how prices of risky assets should be determined and understand why financial instruments like options and futures can increase social welfare, even though they may involve potential risks for individual investors and financial stability.

Throughout the program, you will acquire methodological skills (theoretical, econometric and programming) and expertise that greatly enhance your career perspectives. A M.Sc. in Economics and Finance is the first step towards an ambitious professional career in private and public (financial) institutions or academia.

Aside from the M.Sc. in Economics and Finance program, the School of Business and Economics offers two related programs:

  • M.Sc. in Economics
  • M.Sc. in International Economics

Each program starts with core courses, paving the ground for subsequent field courses. They draw on a common pool of field courses, but each program has its own curricular requirements that reflect its philosophy and orientation.

Curriculum

Our M.Sc. in Economics and Finance candidates are required to pass at least one of the two core courses in economics, finance, and econometrics, respectively (27 ECTS credits). To allow for tailored curricula accommodating personal research interests, students may then concentrate on specialized field courses, which can be flexibly bundled into modules adding up to another 27 ECTS credits. Moreover, elective courses allow students to further deepen their specialization or, alternatively, to broaden their expertise by attending complementary courses, including interdisciplinary elements. The elective studies similarly add up to 27 ECTS credits.

Many courses also contain a practical class, in which students learn to use econometric and statistical software packages (Matlab, GAUSS, SAS, Stata) to perform empirical analyses and to implement numerical methods in finance and economics. A command of these tools enables our students to write Master theses with genuine quantitative research results. The importance of the Master thesis is reflected in its weight of 30 ECTS credits, corresponding to six months fully devoted to working on the thesis.

Professional Career

We offer a Master degree that enjoys a high international reputation and gives you a competitive edge on the job market. You will acquire cutting-edge scientific knowledge that is in high demand for a broad range of professional careers. Graduates may aim for a subsequent doctoral degree (Ph.D.) or executive careers in business and finance as well as administrative positions in the public sector and international institutions. Moreover, career paths in economics and finance also include policy advising, publishing, consulting and research.

Ph.D. Track

Graduates will also find themselves well-positioned to pursue a Ph.D. subsequent to this M.Sc. program. Towards this end, students may study this M.Sc. program on a Ph.D. track, putting themselves on a fast track to a doctoral degree.

The Ph.D. track requires 27 ECTS credits from courses explicitly marked as Ph.D.-oriented. These courses take students to the frontier of academic research. Moreover, Ph.D. track students need to write a high-quality Master thesis that can serve as a starting point for their Ph.D. thesis.
