  • Fun - because economics is about important and interesting social issues.
  • Challenging - because you need to master difficult analytical methods to work on these issues.
  • Rewarding - because our students end up with interesting jobs, with good pay.


The Master of Science in Economics is a practice-oriented degree programme that combines analytical tools with policy applications. The programme is designed to meet the increasing demand for professionals with top quality skills in the private sector as well as in international organizations and the public sector, in Sweden and all over the world. A recent study showed that the employment rate among students with an advanced undergraduate degree in Economics from Gothenburg was close to a 100 percent. The largest share works in the private sector, and many of them work abroad. Most of the graduates have advanced positions where they make use of the skills they achieved during their studies.
