Research Master developed by academics from prestigious universities and professionals from international organizations designed to provide cutting-edge tools in economics and finance.
The program is made of Micro, Macro and Econometric sequences in the first two blocks. The third block adds specialization courses such as Development Economics, Economic Policy Evaluation, Corporate Governance or Macro-Finance. The Program is complemented with programming workshops, state-of-the-art research forums, ethics seminars and career orientation. Professors interact with students one-to-one on a regular basis.
The MEF was created in 1999 to prepare top-level specialists and provide them cutting-edge tools in the fields of economics and finance. Since then the master has trained professionals with a 100% historical employability rate after 6 months of graduation.
The program is the natural gateway either for admission to a top PhD program in Economics, Finance and Analytics or for analytical careers in international corporations.
Examples of recent placements of its alumni in prominent sectors around the world are:
