About

University College Dublin School of Applied Economics is Ireland’s leading economics department. Our economists are experts with international reputations in a wide range of topics such as macroeconomics, econometrics, applied microeconomics, international trade, health economics and economic history.

Overview

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.
