The master programme in Economics, “Applied Economics and Data Analysis”, provides a comprehensive continuation in the field of economics for those who hold a bachelor’s degree and have a substantial amount of statistics and/or econometrics in their undergraduate studies.
The programme aims to build students’ core competencies to analyse economic issues trough appropriate and efficient data processing and analysis in different sectors. The programme does that by including method elements such as applied econometrics, evaluation methods including Cost-Benefit Analysis, programming, database handling and predictive methods. These provide the students with plenty of tools and skills to analyse and process data and draw conclusions. This programme combines theoretical knowledge with useful methods and practical experience especially through an integrated 30 credit course in the second semester, but also through and internship in the third semester. Thus, the education prepares students for positions demanding specialised analytical and methodological skills in economics and ensures that they have experience of real-world cases before graduation.
