The evaluation board of the Quality Assurance Agency for the University System in Catalonia (AQU) recommended this master's degree for the "Accreditation with Quality" seal.
This research degree prepares its students for academic careers and positions in the private sector and in government and non-government organisations. The programme is completely international: its students come from five different continents, its teaching staff forms part of an international English-speaking community and its graduates go on to join the global employment market.
This is a two-year master's degree worth 120 ECTS credits, in line with the guidelines of the Bologna Declaration. In the programme, students acquire a solid grounding in Economics, with the accent placed on rigorous analytic thinking and advanced quantitative and computational methods. The programme includes a wide range of specialisation options, making its students more competitive in the labour market and helping them to acquire the knowledge needed to proceed further onto doctoral studies.

Many opt for the first pathway, applying to join either the IDEA PhD or a PhD programme based abroad.
