The ENTER Reseach Master in Economics
The ENTER Research Master in Economics is a two-year program (120 ECTS credits) jointly organized by Brussels, Madrid, Mannheim, Stockholm, and Toulouse. It allows master students to acquire a joint degree from two of these universities, by studying one year in each of these two partner universities.
The ENTER Research Master relies on a common set of core courses in the first year. The second year allows the student to acquire more specialized skills by taking field courses and produce a master thesis. All courses are taught in English.
The first year of study is devoted to the foundation courses in mathematics, microeconomics, macroeconomics, and statistics and econometrics. Students are also encouraged to participate in research seminars, so that they become acquainted with the frontier of economic research.
Second year training is based on a combination of advanced field courses (in, for instance, macroeconomics, microeconomics, game theory, or development, health, public and information economics) and a personal research project (the master thesis). The typical class size is 15 students.
Students must apply at the university in which they would like to start their studies. Once admitted in the programme, they must contact the local ENTER coordinator, who will help them set up the exchange.
