Master of Science in Economics


Master of Science in Economics

at the School of Business, Economics & Law

Göteborg University



The Department of Economics is glad to offer a 2-years Master of Science programme in Economics. This programme is designed in order to meet the increasing demand for professionals with top quality skills in the private sector as well as international organizations and the public sector, in Sweden and all over the world. The Master of Science education implies an additional step compared to the bachelor education in economics. It provides both a deeper analytical education in general as well as better opportunities to specialize and achieve practically useful skills. In a knowledge-based society, a bachelor¿s degree is often not sufficient to compete for the most attractive jobs, and to have a good Masters degree becomes more and more often a necessity. The Master courses aim to impart deeper knowledge and understanding, including awareness about economic conditions and developing tendencies, thereby enabling the student to apply economic theory as well as concrete empirical tools, including various software programs, to critically analyze current problems.


Deadline for application:

15 February - for applicants with an international degree

1 April          - for applicants with a Swedish degree
