General presentation

The Master of Science in Economics boasts international recognition, built on the calibre of its faculty and the success of its previous graduates. It aims to provide the basis for a successful career as a professional economist. For those interested in further academic and professional research, it also constitutes an excellent preparation for PhD. programmes in economics, both in Switzerland and abroad.

The curriculum encourages a meticulous approach to the subject, which helps to expand the analytical and quantitative scope of the undergraduate economist. Where a Bachelor’s degree provides basic knowledge and intuition, this Master’s degree offers the foundation for expertise, constituting the first step toward producing an economist capable of making real analytical and managerial contributions in both public and private sector positions. Successful students will also find themselves furnished with the skills and knowledge required to pursue doctoral studies at any research-oriented university.
