Overview

The International Master of Science in Quantitative Economics (IMSQE) is an elite programme at the Department of Economics and Business Economics at Aarhus BSS. Students tailor their own study programme on by selecting a range of advanced courses with a quantitative orientation, including selected PhD-level courses. A particular emphasis is placed on the students’ analytical and quantitative skills.

CAREERS

Graduates who complete the IMSQE programme acquire analytical skills at a very high level. These skills are in increasing demand. Potential future employers of these graduates are international and Danish organisations, consulting firms, ministries and government agencies, and financial institutions such as commercial banks, mortgage institutions, pension funds, insurance companies, and investment banks. The IMSQE programme also provides an excellent opportunity for candidates to continue their studies at PhD level. For students who wish to continue on to the PhD programme, a special arrangement is provided to bridge the transition from the IMSQE programme to research training.

Programme Structure

LEARNING OBJECTIVES AND AIMS

The IMSQE programme provides its students with a number of outstanding qualifications. You will acquire analytical skills at a very high level. You will therefore be able to apply the methods you have learnt to new cases, formulate new theories, formulate and test hypotheses, and reflect upon the validity and relevance of various scientific methods and substantive theories within the field. To do this, students need to be able to think independently, not just to reproduce known material.

The aim of the Quantitative Economics programme from Aarhus University is to provide candidates with advanced-level training within the analytical, quantitative disciplines of macroeconomics, microeconomics, econometrics, finance, and accounting. The IMSQE programme aims to recruit students within quantitative economics and business economics in competition with leading institutions such as the London School of Economics, Oxford University, and Cambridge University.

At Aarhus BSS, we conduct research and teaching at the highest academic level. We provide our students with the exact knowledge, skills and experience that are essential for engaging in professional business activities in a global marketplace.
