About

The Master's in Monetary and Financial Economics from the ISEG - Lisbon School of Economics and Management is an international-level programme that follows the best European practices in the area. As such, the selection criteria of applicants are demanding and this exigency level is kept along the course. 

Overview

The Masters in Monetary and Financial Economics from the ISEG - Lisbon School of Economics and Management  (ULisboa) is not compatible with a weak background and with a low-effort profile, as we expect students to be prepared to spend a minimum of 3200 effort hours in 2 years.

The effort required from MEMF students is strongly valued in the labour market. Employers especially recognise to MEMF graduates a strong background in econometrics and quantitative methods, competence in macroeconomics and monetary economics, and a large capacity to face new challenges.

Exigency, competence, and rigour. These have been the leading principles of the MEMF for more than two decades and so they will be.

Employment

A master in Monetary and Financial Economics is prepared to work as an economist, financial analyst, researcher and teacher, senior staff member in financial institutions, central banks, international organisations, and public departments. The programme is also an intermediate step to obtain a Ph.D. in the areas of Economics and Finance.
