Course description

Starting in the fall of 2017, the Master in Quantitative Economics (MQE) program offers exceptionally talented students a fast track to careers as academic and professional economists. This program equips students with the most advanced tools and methods in quantitative economics. Its structure mirrors the first two years of top PhD programs in the US and the UK. The training is research-oriented, combining rigorous courses in core fields of economics with a strong emphasis on advanced mathematical and statistical methods. In their third semester, students will engage in joint or individual research projects, allowing them to specialize early and produce original research for their Master Theses. Soft skills and key competence courses complement the training. The faculty at LMU, one of Germany's largest and most renowned in Economics, is dedicated to providing intense supervision. Each MQE student will be assigned a mentor from the core faculty and a postdoctoral mentor, tailored to the student’s research interests.

Qualification Requirements

The basic entry requirement for the Master in Quantitative Economics is the completion of a bachelor’s program in economics with at least a grade "good". Candidates who did not complete their Bachelor in Economics at LMU Munich, can be admitted as long as it can be established that their qualification, in terms of content and method, is equivalent to the bachelor’s degree in economics at LMU. A selection committee decides whether your qualification can be recognised as being equivalent to a bachelor’s degree in Economics at LMU Munich on the basis of the documents you have provided with your application. GRE test score (Graduate Record Examination): 75th GRE percentile score (only quantitative reasoning section) is required. Upload a scan of your GRE results in the application tool, e.g. the test taker score sheet. Please avoid sending your test score through ETS. If you cannot provide GRE results by the date of the test of admission, you must take a written test of admission at LMU in Munich. You will be invited to the test with a two weeks' notice by e-mail. Very good knowledge of English documented by either a university degree acquired at an English-language institution of higher education or in an English-instructed program or a university entrance qualification acquired at an English-language institution or the result of the verbal section of the GRE general test (75th percentile or higher) or another proof for proficiency in English of at least level C1 of the Common European Framework
