Course description

Economic issues touch every part of our lives. We see economic growth, wage inequality, and unemployment in the news as often as financial crises, emission trading, and globalization effects. We also face countless economic decisions at home and work. In the Economics course, students learn to analyze and address these topics. The Master's degree in Economics is for those who, after earning a relevant Bachelor's degree, want to deepen their knowledge and skills in economics.
