Economics today is a multifaceted discipline with real impact on global politics, law, and society. In the Utrecht University MSc in Multidisciplinary Economics, you learn to cross the borders of economics into other scientific disciplines – a real strength of the Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.) - in order to provide sound research and applicable solutions to real-world problems, now and in the future.
The two-year Research Master in Multidisciplinary Economics is taught by academics and lecturers who bring the true excitement and breadth of multidisciplinary perspectives on economics into the classroom. This multidisciplinary context will encourage you to look at complex economics issues from different perspectives and help you to apply that knowledge in academia, industry or government.

The Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics (SGPE) is part of a unique collaborative venture that combines the teaching expertise of eight Scottish universities: Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot-Watt, St Andrews, Stirling and Strathclyde. All three MSc programme degrees are awarded by the University of Edinburgh and are taught in Edinburgh by Economics faculty from the associated Scottish universities who belong to the SGPE.
We offer three MSc programmes that provide you with a high-quality and thorough training in economics. The programmes are challenging, incorporating mathematics and statistics, they are technical and highly focused on analytical theory.
The programmes last one year (or two years if taken part-time) and lead to the award of MSc Economics, MSc Economics (Finance), or MSc Economics (Econometrics).
Our research-oriented MSc programmes provide you with high-quality training in economics and econometrics.
The MSc programmes consist of preliminary, core and optional courses, a residential weekend and a dissertation.
We do not offer an online distance learning for our MSc programmes.
Our MSc programmes will equip you with the tools a professional economist needs to work in government or in international organisations, to conduct economic research.
We deliver rigorous training in the core areas of economics to gain comprehensive knowledge in the latest analytical and quantitative techniques. You will also gain a firm grounding in mathematical and econometric techniques, as well as microeconomics and macroeconomics.
Our graduates have found employment in a wide variety of private and public organisations in the UK and abroad including in financial services, with the civil service (in the UK the Government Economic Service and the Department for International Development), and as economists with overseas development agencies and international institutions, and as research economists with journals and media agencies.
Our MSc programmes are research oriented and act as a pathway into PhD study globally. Our programmes are the only Economics and Social Research Council (ESRC) recognised pathway to PhD Economics study in Scotland.
Gain a strong grounding in advanced economics, and take your knowledge an important step further by applying it to the field that most interests you.
Our MSc Applied Economics is a suite of taught courses that provides rigorous training in all the main aspects of economics.
Starting with a comprehensive refresher course in essential maths and economics skills, you will go on to receive advanced training in the analysis of problems in applied microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics and strategic decision-making.
Most importantly, you will then have the opportunity to tailor the course to the area of business or policy you are most interested in, giving you additional expertise and a head start when seeking work in that field.
We are one of the only universities in the UK offering this level of specialisation on this type of master's. You can select from MSc Applied Economics as a standalone option or with one of four specialist pathways:
Whichever pathway you choose, you will develop your knowledge of quantitative methods beyond undergraduate level and gain the mathematical, statistical and econometric skills to carry out quantitative analyses of applied economics problems.
You will consolidate your research skills further during the dissertation, which you will work on over the summer under the supervision of one of our experienced lecturers. The research training you receive will prepare you well for going into research positions in a government or commercial context.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
Our teaching staff are all active researchers and regularly publish in the top economics journals, so you will be working with some of the UK’s leading thinkers in economics.
This course is ideal preparation for careers within government or industry that require a thorough knowledge of economics.
We expect graduates of the Banking and Financial Markets pathway to be particularly suited to jobs in banks and other financial institutions.
Graduates of the Public Policy or Environmental Policy pathways are especially well-placed to find jobs within government and non-governmental organisations.
Graduates of the Behavioural Science pathway will be ideally suited to work within government or large private sector firms.
