TWO-YEAR RESEARCH MASTER'S PROGRAMME

From upheavals in the housing market to high bonuses for bankers, from rising taxes to the global credit crisis, economics is no longer a straightforward matter of money and finance. 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.

RESEARCH EXPERTISE

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.

CONTENT OF THE PROGRAMME

In the Research Master in Multidisciplinary Economics you will focus on:

  • compulsory first-year courses designed to give you a solid foundation in economics necessary to conduct economic research and analysis;
  • looking at economic problems from the perspectives of other disciplines;
  • a second year that you can tailor with elective courses that match your personal areas of research interest, to be chosen from a list of U.S.E. electives, complemented with electives from other research masters at UU, and with electives from the University of Groningen;
  • developing interpersonal and social skills in a highly international programme by working closely with fellow students;
  • the development of essential research skills such as data handling, academic writing, and presentation.
