Today’s economists face globally competitive and increasingly complex
environments. Universität Hamburg’s Master of Science in Economics
responds effectively to these developments. The program, which is taught
entirely in English, attaches great importance to quantitative skills
and emphasizes state-of-the-art methods in empirical research. It
encourages applied work and relates it to policy and also prepares
students for real-world economic situations and challenges.
The program provides solid training in best-practice methods in mainstream economics. Students have the opportunity to undertake optional in-depth studies in areas of particular personal interest, which are designed to facilitate the transition into independent research. This program is designed for students who want to pursue careers in higher education, research, or consultancy on both a national and international level.
