About this course

The Master of Science in Economics has a strong international emphasis and offers a wide range of specialisations ranging from theoretical to applied. The programme in Economics provides students with an advanced level of understanding of the economics core (microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics) in combination with an upper-advanced level of understanding in their chosen specialisation.

The Behavioural Economics & Game Theory track in the Economics Master's programme focuses on the psychology of economic behaviour. In reality, most decisions are not based on calculated optimal behaviour but on psychological, social, cognitive and emotional factors that frame the problem before arriving at a decision.
