About this course

The Master of Economics and Public Policy is an economics-centred, multidisciplinary program, designed to provide students with an opportunity to understand how government intervention affects the economy in an increasingly globalised world.

Elective courses include advanced microeconomics, macroeconomics, applied econometrics and a range of policy oriented courses. The program also provides students with the necessary multidisciplinary approaches to deal with public policy problems, including elective courses in political sciences.
