Economics at Radboud University

Radboud's Master's programme in Economics takes a multidisciplinary approach to contemporary problems, borrowing ideas from Political Science, Psychology and Sociology, and gives you the flexibiltiy to customize your own programme to focus on the topics that you are passionate about. We also balance our approach between theory and practice, ensuring that you can take what you learn with you into the world.
 

What will you learn?
Scientific and societal relevance reinforce one another. When addressing contemporary issues in economics, like the economic crisis in the EU or investment decisions by a company, it is crucial to take an academic approach. We offer you the tools to understand and evaluate these issues and improve your economic decision making. We teach you how to think independently and critically about the way in which economics can be applied in a professional sense.


The programme offers small-scale teaching and a personal approach to education and all professors are easily approachable. A major advantage of this programme is its methodological emphasis- essential to increasing our understanding of the world of economics and business.
