This Applied Economics one-year course at University College Dublin provides high quality training in economics with a focus on training students to apply economics to real world problems. The course is ideal preparation for a career as a professional economist working on analysing economic policy issues or applying economics to business situations. In the summer term, students will do either a supervised research thesis or an internship in an economics-related area. Students can switch after the first term to our MSc in Quantitative Economics, which focuses on applying advanced mathematical and statistical methods to economics.
The School of Economics recognises that quality teaching at the graduate level requires staff that are actively engaged in research of the highest calibre. This programme features small group teaching from leading economists and a supportive environment. Masters students are an integral part of our School community, attending research seminars and receiving a wide range of supports to help them prepare for the research thesis or internship element of their degree.
