Course description The objective of the programme is to teach you economic theories at a high analytical level. An additional goal is to familiarise you with the application of theory and research methods to economic practice and policy. Such a combination of rigorous academic thinking with practical application is essential for any professional active in the field of economics, either in policy or research. You will learn about the influence of economic factors on society and how economic theory can be applied to interpret and analyse economic problems. We offer two tracks: "Microeconomics of Markets and Incentives” and “Macroeconomic Theory and Policy”. Alternatively, you can specialize in Energy Economics, or put an emphasis on Health issues in your programme. It is also possible to design your own study programme. The programme is truly international, being taught entirely in English. The best international textbooks are used In the various courses, students study papers published in prominent academic journals in order to keep up with the latest developments. Courses are taught by specialists with an international reputation in their field of research and/or a key role in public debates.
