The Barcelona GSE Economics Program provides rigorous training for admission to top doctoral programs and for technically demanding careers.
Students who complete this program will acquire an excellent grounding and deep understanding of the field's foundations, applications, and policies covering theoretical and empirical approaches.
Students will perform technically demanding analyses using powerful analytical and quantitative tools, and will design and conduct an independent master's project.
The Economics Program course listing is broad enough to offer students specialized training in a number of areas:
Macroeconomics with a focus on monetary and fiscal policy
Labor and public economics
Business and market organization
Behavioral and experimental economics
The Economics Program is the main gateway for admission to the PhD Track of the Graduate Program in Economics, Finance and Management (GPEFM) at UPF.
More than half of our Economics alumni continue their education through GPEFM or in another PhD or graduate program at prestigious schools around the world. Alumni who choose a professional career path are regularly hired by governmental agencies, international banking, consulting and research firms.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Master Degree in Economics and Finance awarded jointly with the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. The degree requires the successful completion of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits of graduate courses (6 credits are equivalent to a 40 hour course), some compulsory and some elective. The students' final program must be discussed with and approved by the Master Director.
