The Master of Science in Economics is a one-year Master programme, oriented towards students with broad interests in social and scientific matters who are capable of critical and creative thinking.
What is the programme all about?
The Master of Economics programme offers you a theoretical framework, allowing you to provide well-grounded answers to economic questions. As an economist, you will observe the various players (individuals, companies, domestic and foreign governments) and their interactions within the global economy. You will be able to interpret the general economic situation in a wider social and legal context.
The programme consists of a common core of three courses and a Master's thesis. Students complete their study programme until at least 60 ECTS with electives out of different groups: general economics, financial economics, research in economics. A project or summer school can as well be chosen.
After completing two semesters in Leuven you can follow an additional semester (‘Extended Master’) at one of the several top universities around the world we have close links with (as part of the Erasmus+ programme). More information on the various international experiences the faculty has to offer can be found on this website.
