We train qualified labor
Our students learn the theoretical, empirical and computational methods that economists use to understand markets and analyze data. Powered with these skills, our students access to highly qualified jobs. Hence, our Master acts as a link between academia and firms demanding highly skilled human capital, as for example, consulting firms, think tanks and domestic or international public institutions requiring a solid research component.
Those who opt for a research career will have already acquired the knowledge and skills necessary to begin working independently on their Ph.D. dissertations. This Master is taught in English. We would like to attract bright and strongly motivated students wherever they come from.
