About Economics at Linnaeus University

As a student on the master's programme in economics, you will be equipped with theoretical and empirical tools for analyzing economic challenges in society, in order to be able to study the interplay between individuals, companies, organizations, countries, and other actors on different markets. The programme gives you an introduction to advanced empirical methods for descriptive statistical analysis, identification of causal effects and economic experiments. Compared to studies at first-cycle level, you will gain a deeper understanding of econometrics and statistics in general. During your third semester, you will have the opportunity to study abroad.

After completing the programme, you will be well prepared to work with analytical, decision-making, counselling, and investigative tasks, skills that you can apply in both the private and public sector. You will also be prepared for studies at third-cycle level since the content of the programme has close ties to research within different parts of the economics subject.
