Master in Economics

At the Master level, we offer a technical and rigorous approach required for professional economists. Our mission is to advance research by supporting students in their research initiatives. We intend to extend the knowledge of economic theory and its application by offering an intensive one-year program concentrated on microeconomic and macroeconomic theories and econometrics.

Since this is a research-intensive program, we expect that students have an undergraduate degree in economics or closely related fields and a solid foundation in quantitative techniques. The program is constructed in a way to provide students with current research topics in economics and econometrics while allowing large flexibility with elective courses that can be aligned to research preference. This program tends to provide a solid background for pursuing a Ph.D. degree.

Our program has students from different parts of the world, as well as different educational and professional backgrounds. This contributes to the success of our alumni who, in addition to knowledge, skills, and abilities, also strengthen their networks that lead to future partnerships.

After completing the second study cycle, a student acquires the title of Master of Arts (M.A.) in Economics. The program structure is available here.
