Program description

As competition policy becomes increasingly relevant in both the public and private sectors, there is a great need for professionals prepared to address market regulation issues. The highly practical focus of the Competition and Market Regulation Program (MCMR) assures that students in the program graduate with sound job prospects in their chosen field and an advanced understanding of the interaction between economic theory and practice.

Degree

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Master Degree in Specialized Economic Analysis awarded jointly with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

Structure

The program is divided in 3 terms. In the fall term, students will acquire basic economic tools. In the winter term, students will study core issues in competition policy and market regulation with the help of leading specialists in each field. In the spring, students will consider real competition policy cases and how regulation works in several specific sectors. For more information, please download the academic calendar.

Students are strongly advised to take the Math and Statistics review course and the Computer Tools course offered in September. More information is available on the MCMR courses page.

Credits

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 their Master Director.

Grades

The academic performance of each student is reviewed regularly. Attention is given to the maintenance of normal academic progress, through a combination of formal written examinations and coursework. Core courses will award grades. Some optional courses may be evaluated on a pass/fail or pass with honors/pass/fail basis.

Campus

The Competition and Market Regulation Program is located at the Ciutadella campus at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in central Barcelona. The campus is within walking distance of both the beach and the city's financial, cultural and governmental centers.

Master program description

In 2009, OECD countries used more than 20% of their national incomes for public social spending (pensions, health system, income support and other social programs). Another 5% was spent on public education. These numbers are much larger in some developed countries and fast growing in many developing ones. These are big numbers, and successful public policies can make a difference for the lives of millions.

How and why do particular public policies get implemented? How are they designed? How do we know if they work? Why are some policies more successful than others? The Master Program in Economics of Public Policy provides students with theoretical and empirical tools to answer these questions. Our graduates will be prepared to work in leading international organizations, governmental and non-governmental agencies, consulting companies, research institutions or to pursue a further academic career.

Program description

International Trade, Finance, and Development (ITFD) is a demanding master program that combines rigorous analytical training with a focus on policy. The course starts with a set of classes in growth, finance, trade, and statistics, and then proceeds to more applied topics. Starting in the second term, students can chose one of two specialized tracks – development, and international trade and finance. Students choose from a wide array of courses, from evaluating development programs to the dynamics of foreign exchange markets. In addition, students prepare a policy project that allows them to apply the skills acquired. In the third term, outside experts share their experiences of applying economic analysis to real-life problems, whether it is in reshaping policy, devising trading strategies, or helping children in Africa.

The ITFD program faculty have worked on a wide range of policy issues related to topics covered in our program. They have held academic positions at MIT, NYU, Maryland, Chicago, Stanford and Cambridge, and have worked at international organizations – from the World Bank to the ECB – and in private sector firms, either as staff members or consultants. Each year in the spring term, leading policy specialists from international organizations, NGOs, or private corporations join the program faculty to lead a series of policy courses that provide a real-world perspective on topics covered in class.

Students complete a thesis at the end of the academic year under the supervision of a faculty member, allowing them to specialize in a policy topic of their choice. Program graduates will be well-equipped for employment in development organizations, NGOs, government agencies, central banks, multinational firms, and investment banks; others tend to join highly selective doctoral programs.

Degree

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Master Degree in Specialized Economic Analysis awarded jointly with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

Program description

Policymakers are often forced to make decisions under conditions of uncertainty that have a direct impact on a country’s overall performance. A thorough understanding of the dynamics of the aggregate economy is necessary, but not entirely sufficient, for success. Private firms must also be knowledgeable of the many sources of aggregate risk and uncertainty, and the analytical tools available to study the aggregate economy can be of much help.

Students in the Macroeconomic Policy and Financial Markets Program will obtain relevant knowledge about the central issues in macroeconomic and financial economics analysis, as well as the key tools, data and models.

Many government institutions now use models and techniques developed recently and not yet taught in most undergraduate courses. Its use has also spread to the private sector, where investment banks and consulting firms increasingly utilize them. Some examples are DSGE models, VAR’s, and ARCH. Students will learn not only how to use these modeling and statistical techniques but also how they are actually applied by government agencies and private financial firms.

Most central banks and many other government agencies throughout the world are establishing groups that build their forecasts by means of these techniques. More generally, investment banks and consulting firms are interested in professionals who have gained a good understanding of the functioning of the aggregate economy and of financial markets, who have been well trained and who can competently conduct empirical work. International finance and development agencies such as the IMF, WB, BERD, BIS, etc. often look for profiles of this type.

A limited number of places will be available to practitioners who would like to enroll in specific courses.

Degree

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Master Degree in Specialized Economic Analysis awarded jointly with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

Structure

The master program is a full-time nine-month program structured in three terms: Fall term (from September to December), Winter term (from January to March) and Spring term (from April to June). For more information, please download the academic calendar.

Students will be required to do an applied project during the second and third terms.

Students in this master are required to take the Math and Statistics Review course and the Computer Tools course offered in September. All students are required to pass the exams for these two courses. More information is available on the MPFM courses page.
