About

The MSc in Economics is an advanced programme offered by the Faculty of Economics at the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI).

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The goal of the MSc in Economics from Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) is to teach students how to analyze economic problems at the national as well as international level and how to identify the most appropriate policy instruments. 

In a cordial environment and in close interaction with the Faculty, the students will be equipped with the quantitative methods and the analytical tools necessary for a successful career as a professional economist in the private or public sector. 

To optimally prepare for different career paths, the students have the option to acquire additional programming skills (minor in data science) or additional tools relevant for public policy analysis (minor in public policy). The master will also drive interested students into a Ph.D program.

Career

The Master in Economics provides the foundations for a successful career as an applied economist. Due to the rigorous coursework in microeconomics, econometrics and macroeconomics, combined with knowledge in more specialized areas, national as well as international organizations alike will have a strong interest in hiring ME-students. 

Next to the possibilities offered by the private/public sector, the students are well prepared for a continuing education in form of a Ph.D.
