Master's Programme in Economics

General

Programme Description

Umeå University, Umeå School of Business, Economics and Statistics Master's Programme in Economics

About the programme

A growing need for knowledge in economics is a feature of an ever-evolving society. The Master's Programme in Economics seeks both to broaden the content of the undergraduate programme and to provide students with essential tools for advanced studies and a career as an economist.

The faculty members teaching and supervising in the Master's Programme in Economics have a strong standing in the international research community and good connections to authorities and firms. Students completing the Master's Programme in Economics may apply to our PhD programme. Since the programme is a research-oriented programme based on the PhD-programme, many of the courses are transferable to the doctoral level. The programme starting fall 2015 offer two new profiles in addition to the general profile:

  • Environmental- and resource economics.
  • Health Economics.

Within the scope of CERE and with our partners at the Swedish University of Agricultural Science we have created a profile in Environmental- and resource economics and together with the Faculty of Medicine we can offer a profile in Health Economics. If you chose to study the general profile you have good opportunities for exchange studies or internships in Sweden or abroad. No matter what your choice is, it will be a great experience and good to have on your CV!
