The Degree of MA (Economics) [Graduate]


The Department of Economics offers two programs: The MA in Economics and the MA in Economics and Finance. The MA in Economics is a coursebased program consisting of at least ★27 including an independent research project (★3). The MA in Economics and Finance, offered collaboratively with the Department of Finance and Statistical Analysis of the Faculty of Business is also a course-based program requiring ★42 including an independent research project (★3).

Except in special cases, no language other than English is required for the degree of MA.

The course-based MA in Economics and MA in Economics and Finance have no minimum residence period and can be completed on a purely part-time basis.

Length of Program


The time required to complete either of the MA programs will vary according to the previous training of the applicant. Under normal circumstances, the MA in Economics can be completed on a full-time basis in 10 months. The MA in Economics and Finance requires a minimum of four, four-month academic terms of full-time study and therefore requires 22 months to complete.
