Overview

Key facts

Ghent University's Economics programme analyses the behavior and interactions between consumers, businesses, financial institutions and the government, in an international context. The Economics programme studies the functioning of the global economy. You will discuss all economic actors and their interactions: families, businesses, financial institutions, government and society. The master’s programme provides you with an advanced insight into economic theories, models and techniques that you can use to analyse and evaluate complex social issues with regard to the interactions and behaviours between economic actors. You’ll learn how these actors make economic choices (consume, production, labour, investments, import, export …), what the consequences are for society and how problems in this matter can be solved best. In function of this you will learn how to set up a scientific research and use the results to formulate policy recommendations. The topics that you will discuss are socially relevant: economic growth, welfare, income generation, income distribution, money, inflation, monetary policy, employment and unemployment, government efficiency, social security, taxation and government debt, international economic relations, globalization, problems of developing countries, environmental pollution, poverty .
