Letzter Abschluss

The M.Sc. in Economics program builds upon the expertise and reputation of our faculty in various fields of economics. If you want to deepen your understanding of economics in areas of your own choice, then this is the program for you.

Experts in economics become ever more important for societies to master key challenges of the future, such as achieving sustainable growth and avoiding unacceptable levels of economic inequality or unemployment. A broad range of field courses and electives gives you all the necessary flexibility to develop your individual academic profile, in order to become such an expert.

Graduating from this program, you will be able to understand the driving forces behind major economic trends, and what these mean for firms, workers, and governments. You will have the skills to analyze economic data in a scientific manner, and to grasp the logic of economic problems as required in order to find solutions.

Double Degree Program with the University of Adelaide

This program can be completed as a double degree with the University of Adelaide. This brand-new Double Degree Program is based on the M.Sc. Economics at the University of Tübingen and the Honours program in Economics at the University of Adelaide. Students participating in this Double Degree Program spend one year at each institution and graduate with both degrees.

Our M.Sc. in Economics students are required to earn a total of 27 ECTS credits from advanced courses in macroeconomics and microeconomics as well as one course in econometrics (time series or microeconometrics). Students may then concentrate on specialized field courses in economics, flexibly combining economic theory as well as applied economics 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 courses of a complementary nature, including interdisciplinary elements. The elective studies similarly add up to 27 ECTS credits.

Some 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 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 M. Sc. in Economics

We are committed to a Master’s degree that enjoys a high international reputation. Our program gives you the opportunity to achieve a competitive edge in the job market for professional economists. You will acquire up-to-date scientific knowledge that is in high demand for a broad range of professional careers. Graduates may aim for executive careers in business and finance as well as for administrative positions in the public sector and international institutions. Moreover, careers in Economics typically include policy advice, publishing, consulting and research.

Ph. D. track

Graduates will also find themselves well-positioned for an academic career. Therefore, you may complete this program on a Ph. D. track. This effectively puts you on a fast track to a doctoral degree (or Ph. D.) in Economics.

Completing the Ph. D. track requires you to take both of the econometrics courses, Advanced Time Series Analysis and Advanced Microeconometrics. Moreover, you will obtain 27 of your ECTS credits from special Ph. D. track courses that take students to the frontier of academic research. Ph. D. track students fulfill the Master thesis requirement by writing an academic paper that may serve as a first part of their Ph. D. thesis.

Starting in 2013, the school offers a new taught Ph.D. program covering Economics, Finance and Business Studies.


Admission requires a Bachelor’s degree in Economics, Business Studies or any related field with excellent grades, preferably a degree that amounts to 180 ECTS credits. Applicants are expected to have a solid intermediate level knowledge of Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Quantitative Methods. The entire program is taught in English. Applicants should therefore be fluent in English. Knowledge of German is not required to complete these programs. However, German classes are available.

This program is tuition-free for students from inside the European Union. All other students are charged with 1.500 Euro per semester.


Admission is subject to a competitive selection procedure that includes individual interviews with faculty members. Shortlisted candidates from overseas will be interviewed in a video conference.

Application deadline: May 15

Interviews with shortlisted applicants are scheduled for early June.
Letters of admission will be sent out by the end of June.
