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. The 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.
