The two-year Master of Science in Economics and Econometrics programme at Örebro University seeks to provide students with a broad level of competence in economic theory and quantitative methods.
The programme focuses on the use of economic theory and gives the opportunity to learn econometric methodology as a tool for understanding, modelling and evaluating economic and political issues in society as a whole or in particular sub-sectors. The first semester provides students with deeper knowledge of financial economics, including public finance. The focus of the programme is on building up analytical capacities rather than trying to cover all aspects of the field. Students are provided with the skills needed to construct, use and critique models used in all areas of finance, microeconomics and macroeconomics.
