Main focus

; Students of the master’s programme in Economics will acquire similar skills to their counterparts in European and North American universities. The courses in the programme will encourage the acquisition of a critical knowledge of economic theory with an emphasis on recent developments and unorthodox approaches. Students will also be informed about recent advances in business literature, with a specific focus on the need for a synergistic view of the different economic and business approaches. Graduates of this programme will be able to analyse successfully a wide range of phenomena by using or generating data on socio-economic and business activity at a micro and macrolevel and providing accurate diagnoses for decision-making on economic policy and business strategy.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
