Economic Policy

Utrecht University

Master Postgraduate Utrecht

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Economics, commerce, management and accounting
Course summary In this one-year, English-taught Master's programme in Economics, you will analyse and evaluate government policy and management.
Course description The MSc in Economic Policy deals with complex societal issues, with a focus on the role of government policies, ranging from the organisation of care and the provision of social insurance to policies of sustainable growth. You will learn to apply modern economics to questions relating to labour market reform, inequality, the future of education and health care, energy transition and sustainable economic growth. You will take courses that combine economic theory with socio-economic policy-making in a small group of students representing diverse academic and cultural backgrounds. This diversity helps to create a learning environment that encourages intense discussion and interaction. "The initial core modules are challenging, but covered important economic theories and techniques. This is built on with constant reference to real-world situations and implications throughout the year, making it all the more engaging. The teaching staff, who are open and extremely proficient in English, have extensive professional experience. Courses didn't just cover economic measurement and analysis, but also policy design, implementation and review." - John Appleton (MSc graduate United Kingdom)
