Structure & Contents
The Master's program in Economics offers an Applied Track and a Science Track. Students apply to one of the two tracks. There is only limited scope for changing track once the program has started.
The Applied Track focuses on problem-solving skills based upon a thorough understanding of economic theories and methods. The Applied Track covers a broad range of economic policy and business issues and prepares students for a career in government, business or society. Empirical data analysis is emphasized.
The Science Track emphazise mathematical and statistical foundations and analytically rigorous advanced courses in economic theory and methods. The courses offered in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics are equivalent to first-year PhD courses. For highly qualified students the Science Track offers a fast-track option into the Ph.D.in Economics program at WU.
