Companies and governments are facing complex problems in the global economy. With your profound understanding of how integrated and turbulent markets function - and if they fail, how this affects market participants - you can help organizations and governments seize the opportunities available.

Program and courses 

The Master's program in Economics is an excellent choice if you want to develop the skills, knowledge and attitude to become a professional economic analyst. The program is taught by internationally renowned economics professors of Tilburg University. With about 50% international fellow students, there is great diversity in nationalities in your classroom.

Compose your own curriculum or specialize with one of six different tracks:

  • Behavioral Economics: Address economic problems and questions involving people’s behavior and behavioral change. Become an economist trained to take both the economics and the psychology of behavior into account, as well as the ways it can be affected by policies and strategies. This is a track of MSc Economics.
     
  • Data Science: Become an economist with hands-on experience in processing and interpreting unstructured (big) data sets. With a strong foundation in statistical modeling and additional training in programming languages, you will have the right skillset to understand the economic value of data and to become an ''analytics translator'': a person who can bridge the technical expertise of data engineers with the end user in any organization (managers, policy makers, etc.). This is a track of MSc Economics.
     
  • Financial Economics: Combine practical financial management with economic analysis of the markets you invest in. You will address for example urgent problems in the Euro zone, international financial supervision, micro-finance, bank-runs and systemic risk, and taxation of financial institutions. This is a track of MSc Economics.
     
  • Law and Economics: Use economic methods and models to identify regulations that ensure fair competition while mitigating negative economic effects. You'll combine insights from economics, industrial organization and competition law to business strategies and regulatory policies. Deal with, for example, the lack of competition in certain markets and the response by national governments and the European Union. This is a track of MSc Economics.
     
  • Public Policy: Study important domestic public policy issues, ranging from reduced income inequality and job security, to an affordable health care and pension system. Upon graduation you are an economic expert on how governments can achieve such critical goals, design effective solutions, and finance these activities. This is a track of MSc Economics.
     
  • Sustainable Development: Analyze the sources of economic growth in a country or region, the obstacles to growth and development they face, and their potential negative environmental consequences. Upon graduation you have become trained to evaluate and write policies and strategies towards economic development and sustainable resource use. This is a track of MSc Economics.
