  • 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 programme that combines advanced analytical tools with policy applications. The teachers are active researchers, so the students get acquainted with the research frontier during the courses as well as the possibility to use their knowledge in more applied settings. 

Through a number of elective courses students can specialise either in demanding and theoretical courses, preparing for PhD studies, or choose more applied courses. These courses are designed to meet the increasing demand for professionals with top quality skills in both the private and public sector and as well as in international organisations.

As an Economics Master student at the University of Gothenburg, you will meet knowledgeable and dedicated teachers and your classmates are from all around the world. During the two years, you will develop your knowledge to a new level and almost all our graduates now hold advanced positions where they make use of the skills they achieved during their studies.
