Master in Economics: Econometrics [120.0] - ETRI2M
The second cycle training available at the Department of Economic Science is designed to train academics to understand and analyse the practical economic and social issues of their time, explain and communicate their analyses to a wide range of audiences, put their analyses in wider contexts and go on to work with specialists from other disciplines.
The precise objective of the 120 credit Master in economic sciences with econometrics is to provide the economist with advanced methodological tools and strong analytical skills. It is therefore centred on the research focus and designed for students who intend to move on to a doctorate. This two year programme will provide them with research skills so that they are as well equipped as possible to do a doctoral dissertation.
This programme corresponds to the MPhil of foreign universities (for example the UK and the Netherlands) which offers a two year second cycle research-led programme leading on to a doctorate.
From the outset, this programme requires a good level in mathematics and statistics for economists.
The programme is organized by UCL through the Louvain School of Economics with the cooperation of the FUNDP in Namur and KULeuven and other Academy partners.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROGRAMME IS BOTH GIVEN AND ASSESSED IN ENGLISH
Whatever focuses and options are chosen, the programme for this Master must total a minimum of 120 credits, spread over two years of study. This corresponds to 60 credits per year.
Students who decide only to take a part of the proposed programme may either move to the 60 credit general Master programme or, alternatively, receive a diploma.
