Quantitative Economics and Finance (MiQE/F)
MiQE/F is a unique combination of theoretical concepts, quantitative methods and practical applications. It offers a high-quality graduate education in economics, finance, and quantitative methods.
The Master's Programme in Quantitative Economics and Finance (MiQE/F) is a specialised and research-oriented Master's programme with the objective of training highly-qualified economists with special skills in econometric, statistical and other quantitative methods. Students can specialise either in Econometrics or Finance, or combine the subjects.
A unique degree course
The distinguishing feature of the program is its combination of rigorous economic and finance theory with quantitative empirical methods to analyse and solve challenging practical problems in economics, finance and the private sector.
This quantitative orientation is a specific feature that cannot be found in other Master's programmes at our university. The programme prepares students for a successful career path in the financial industry, international organisations, management, the public sector and in scientific research.
Individual study profile
Students enjoy great flexibility to tailor their individual study profile. The various areas of specialisation include optional econometrics courses, which are important in preparation for empirical applications in a competitive job market. The optional areas of specialisation allow for a diverse range of combinations. Students choose their core electives from a field of their interest:
- Quantitative economics
- Quantitative finance
- Corporate finance, banking and insurance
The MiQE/F is an international programme. The programme is taught exclusively in English, including all course instructions and examinations. Students come from a variety of countries, underscoring the international focus of the programme.
Due to the research-oriented nature of the programme, students often continue with a Ph.D. education at top universities or choose demanding jobs in the financial and insurance sector, private industry, applied research institutions, as well as at national and international organisations.
