The Master of Science in Economics at Radboud University Nijmegen offers you more than just a Master's degree in Economics; it is a study which could be called ‘Economics Plus'. Due to our excellent research reputation at home and abroad, we can guarantee that you will be participating in a state-of-the-art programme.
You will take courses that make up the field of specialisation that you have chosen:
||Accounting and Control |
||Financial Economics |
||International Economics |
||International Economics and Business |
More than Economics
You will be exposed to all of the most recent academic and practical developments in the fields of Accounting & Control, Financial Economics and International Economics. Moreover, in addition to the standard economics package, we try to shift your knowledge frontier. Our programmes cover contemporary issues in economics and business. You will subsequently acquire in-depth knowledge that can be applied in today’s globalised business world, but the main advantage of the Nijmegen programme in Economics is its strong methodological orientation.
Scientific and societal relevance support one another. For instance, if you decide to address contemporary issues in Economics, either from an accounting point of view, or from a financial or international perspective, it is crucial to evaluate these societal developments by reflecting on your academic background. The Nijmegen programme in Economics increases your incentive to understand, evaluate and improve economic decision making, an inquisitiveness which will come in handy later during your professional career.
There are three specific admission requirements for admission to the Master's in Economics to make sure that you have a background to successfully follow and complete this programme:
1. A completed Bachelor's degree in Economics or related area
A Bachelor degree in Economics or a closely-related discipline from a research university, with a fair number of courses in your preferred specialisation. For example: Accounting, Micro and Macro Economics, International Economics and academic Research and Data-analysis courses.
In case your prior education is marked insufficient for direct admission to the Master's programme Economics, you may be offered to enroll in one of our pre-master programmes. These are programmes that have been especially designed to bridge the gap between your prior education and the economics Master's programme. A pre-master programme typically means a year of extra study.
2. A proficiency in English
In order to take part in the programme, you need to have a sufficient level of English. This requirement has been satisfied when the student provides us with one of these documents:
||TOEFL score of >550 (paper based) or >213 (computer based) or >80 (internet based) |
||IELTS score of >6.0 |
||Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English (CAE) or Proficiency in English (CPE), with a mark of at least C |
