The two-year MSc programme in Economics and Management gives students an in-depth knowledge of a range of economics and business economics disciplines. The programme's flexibility also gives students the opportunity to specialise in a specific field or across a range of economics and management topics.
Researchers in the programme work in the fields of accounting, finance, macroeconomics, microeconomics, econometrics, and the economics of business, and the MSc programme allows students to create a personal academic profile within one or across several of these fields. Progress in the chosen courses is closely followed and monitored to ensure students' academic development. Each semester, the department also offers about thirty elective courses. The broad range of courses allows you to specialise in a particular field of interest and to compose an individual course programme.
IN THE COMPANY OF NOBEL LAUREATES
Students on the programme are based in the Department of Economics and Business Economics. The department is renowned for setting high academic standards. It engages in close collaboration with many leading international researchers, including Nobel Laureate Robert F. Engle and, until his death in 2014, Dale T. Mortensen. The department's outstanding research environment includes the Centre for Research in Econometric Analysis of Time Series (CREATES), where Robert F. Engle serves as member of the advisory board, and the Dale T. Mortensen Centre, among others.
The academic environment at the department is characterised by international diversity: more than one-third of its academic staff and PhD students have an international background. The international atmosphere provides the basis for an enriched and exciting student life.
GRADUATES IN HIGH DEMAND
Economics and Management graduates are in very high demand on the labour market. Many graduates achieve top executive positions in the corporate world (e.g. in financial institutions and consulting firms) or management advisory positions in the public sector (e.g. in ministries and local authorities).
Moreover, the international character of the programme allows graduates to work with equal ease in both Danish and international organisations, consulting firms, ministries, government agencies, and financial institutions - including commercial banks, mortgage institutions, pension funds, insurance companies, and investment banks. Students who are interested in pursuing an academic career may also progress to the PhD programme. The department offers a special transitional arrangement for honours students who wish to continue their research training in the PhD programme.
