Overview

Compared to other economics studies, a good deal of emphasis in this programme is placed on mathematics and statistical theory and less emphasis on, say, sociology and economic history. To a large extent you can compose the programme very freely. However, the first year of the programme consists partly of mandatory courses which will provide you with basic knowledge within the fields of advanced econometrics, macro-economics, micro-economics and finance.

Accreditation

This programme is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
