Overview

Economics Plus: looking beyond money, markets and regulations and becoming an economist that can tackle complex economic issues in today’s fast-changing, globalising world.

Radboud University offers six Master’s specialisations in Economics. When choosing a specialisation it’s important to realise that each specialisation may lead to very different future prospects. Each with its own unique challenges and charm. Do you want to immerse yourself in the nitty-gritty of a company’s finances? Or would you prefer to understand financial markets and perhaps be the one that discovers how they can be tamed? Or are you more interested in the economies of developing countries that offer great challenges but also surprising potential?

Why study Economics at Radboud University?

- Economics at Radboud University could be called ‘Economics Plus’: the ‘standard’ economics package is expanded with relevant knowledge from related disciplines such as Political Science, Psychology and Sociology.

- Education and research at Radboud University go hand in hand. Our lecturers are active in academic and applied research and incorporate the latest academic developments and applied issues in their teaching.

- In our Master’s programmes, professors and students interact in small groups, thus strengthening the academic atmosphere.

- Our programme is academic. We believe in a strong theoretical background in a broad range of economical theories so that students thoroughly understand not just what is happening, but also why and how. However, we never lose sight of practical relevance. Real-world case scenarios, guest-speakers and the very latest theories on current events, will contribute to you becoming a professional that upon graduating immediately attracts the attention of potential employers.

Change perspective

Radboud University challenges you to look at Economics differently and to discover that within all specialisations this field is much more than money, markets and regulations. Economists also examine consumers’, businesses’ and governmental financial behaviour and decision-making. Their decisions as to where and why they spend money is fundamental in economics. And because their reasoning is not always rational, it’s important to have a clear understanding of thought processes. We therefore include aspects of sociology and psychology in our programme, and we look at our field from a cultural, legal and even philosophical perspective.

Having an eye for all these facets will give you a much better basis to tackle the complex economic issues in today’s fast-changing globalising world than when you just focus on numbers and methods. Simply put, Radboud University’s Master’s programme in Economics will put you ahead of the game.
