The Master in Economics and Finance (MEF) at Charles University puts emphasis on developing abstract analytical reasoning, which allows our graduates to solve complex economic problems in various settings.
The applicants must have solid background in Mathematics and good command of English. Courses are taught both by members of the Institute of Economic Studies (IES) and external professionals from the central bank, commercial banks and business analysts. Our graduates typically assume challenging positions in banking, consulting, investment funds and public administration.
As the programme exposes students to advanced topics in economic and finance applicants are required to have a sufficient background in mathematics. The applicants should have studied at least two terms of Bachelor level mathematics. Prior knowledge of Bachelor level economics or finance is an advantage but it is not required.
In addition, applicants should have a good command of English corresponding at least to B2 level under the CEFR system and they should be capable of reading Master level textbook without difficulties. We especially welcome applicants with Bachelor degrees in economics, finance, business studies, mathematics, physics, or technical fields.
