Admission to the Master Program in Economics is determined by a selection procedure that assesses a student’s suitability for the program. This procedure establishes whether applicants who have obtained their Bachelor’s qualification in Economics (or in a subject that is similar in terms of content and methodology) at universities other than LMU are able to fulfil the particular requirements for participation in the Master program.
Requirements include a good understanding of the subjects and methods covered in a Bachelor’s Program in Economics, particularly in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Empirical Economics.
To gain an idea of the expected requirements in economics for the Master Program, you should compare your bachelor course studies with our B.Sc. Program and our B.Sc. Examination Regulations in German (Prüfungsordnung PO 2013). A compilation of information about the compulsory courses of LMU's Bachelor in Economics is compiled in an excerpt [pdf, 134 kB] of the official course catalogue.
In addition to their qualification in Economics applicants must be able to prove that they have sufficient command of the English language (refer to the list of Evidence).
