Quantitative Economics and Finance (MiQE/F)

What is the impact of climate change on asset prices? How can taxes help mitigate the impact of supply shocks hitting the economy? What is the distributional impact of inflation? How does digitalisation shape economic interactions? Which labour market and development policies are most effective? The MiQE/F equips students with the skills to analyse such topics in economics and finance with rigorous quantitative methods, including econometric techniques required for the analysis of big data.

Why MiQE/F?

The Masters's degree programme in Quantitative Economics and Finance (MiQE/F) offers a high quality education in econometrics and quantitative methods as well as in economics and finance. The following features of the programme ensure excellent labour market prospects of the programme graduates: 

  • The programme trains you to analyse and solve challenging problems in economic policy, finance, and the world of business by combining quantitative methods with theoretical foundations in economics and finance.
  • The programme has a special focus on developing skills in econometrics, quantitative methods and machine learning. 
  • Graduates of the programme are able to analyse big data to solve complex real-world problems in economics and finance.
