Find here the structure of the Curriculum of the Master Program.


In the Master Program in Economics we distinguish between two types of modules:

Compulsory Modules (CM)

Those CM must be taken without exception:

  • Mathematics for Economists
  • Econometrics
  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Public Economics

Optional Modules (OM)

Please note: For Optional Modules, modules are 'titles' for a variety of courses. As courses are polyvalent, there is a maximum of flexibility to choose out of the different courses in the Optional Modules.

There are OM with 12-ECTS-courses, where an extensive discussion of a certain topic will take place:

  • Studies in Economic Theory
  • Studies in Economic Analysis and Empirical Economics
  • Studies in Public Economics
  • Studies in Economic Research

The other categorie of Optional Modules comprises 6-ECTS-courses:

  • Topics in Economic Theory - Methods
  • Topics in Economic Theory - Applications
  • Topics in Economic Analysis and Empirical Economics - Methods
  • Topics in Economic Analysis and Empirical Economics - Applications
  • Topics in Economic Policy - Methods
  • Topics in Economic Policy - Applications
  • Advanced Economic Research - Methods
  • Advanced Economic Research - Applications

Each module is completed either with a single module-examination or a specified number of sub-module exams. The modules in the curriculum consist of abstract courses. The attribution of the concrete courses can be obtained from the university calendar and from LSF.
