KU Leuven
The Master of Economics programme offers students with a bachelor\'s degree a theoretical framework, allowing them to provide well-grounded answers to socio-economic questions.
As an economist, you will observe the various players (individuals, companies, domestic and foreign governments) and their interactions within the global economy.
You will be able to interpret the general economic situation in a wider social and legal context.

You select one of the three majors: General EconomicsResearch in Economics or Financial Economics.


You have an interest in the dynamics of economy and society. You have an ability to analyse, synthesise and interpret. You have a positive scientific attitude and you are critical and creative. 
Students should have a solid academic background in economics or business, including the most important domains in economics or business/management (such as macro and microeconomics), mathematics and statistics. Students should also be familiar with more general themes necessary for understanding the evolutions in the business world and be able to relate these evolutions to the broader social, juridical, political and social context.

Universiteit Gent
The master’s programme has, in addition to a common part with general courses, four majors that allow you to tailor your curriculum, according to your own interests. You can choose three courses from one major and an elective course from a broad range of courses. The common part deepens your knowledge of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics in three advanced courses: Decision theory, Business cycles, innovation and growth, and Time series analysis.
The major Globalisation includes a series of courses where the international aspects are central (both economic, financial, institutional, and political and environmental aspects). It concerns Institutional economics, Modern trade theory, Environmental and energy policy, Economics of development, and International banking. This major aims at students interested in the international economic field.
The major Financial institutions and markets aims at students who aspire a job in the financial sector. The following courses are covered: Economics of banking, Economics of financial markets, International banking, and Investment analysis.
The major Economic Policy offers several policy-oriented courses: Public economics, Fiscal policy, and Environmental and energy policy. This major aims at students who aspire a job in the economic policy field, in the very broad sense of the word (not only government, but also social partners, central banking, international organisations, financial institutions …).
The major Research focuses in particular to those students who want to continue later in the scientific economic research: at a university (doctorate), in various research services or other research institutions. The courses are oriented in advanced micro- and macro-economics and advanced econometrics: Equilibrum and dynamics, Game theory and asymmetric information, and Non-linear methods.
Finally, the master’s dissertation is a very important element. Via that dissertation you can show that you are able to apply the acquired knowledge to a problem independently.
