The MSc in Advanced Economics and Finance accommodates the need for economists with strong quantitative competencies. The Advanced Economics and Finance program from Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is a thorough preparation for a variety of careers. Graduates are working in the financial sector, consulting firms or joined a PhD program in economics or finance.

These will also typically be the areas in which graduates will find employment. The strong theoretical focus of the programme additionally provides excellent preparation for a PhD study.
