During this two-year Research Master you will learn to cross the borders of economics into other scientific disciplines to provide sound research and applicable solutions to real-world problems.

The two-year Research Master in Multidisciplinary Economics was carefully designed to give you the specialised knowledge and expertise you need for a career in economics. Moreover, the multidisciplinary context will encourage you to look at complex economics issues from different perspectives and help you to apply that knowledge in academia, industry or government.

"Next to the thorough coverage of economic methodology, the strong interdisciplinary content of the Master has enabled me to look at economic issues from different perspectives." - Cherry Muijsson, MSc graduate
