Master of Science in Economics, Major in Economic Policy (MScECON)

Economic analysis for decision makers

The Master of Science in Economics, major in Economic Policy programme (MScECON), provides students with a unique opportunity to follow a first-class graduate programme, in a prestigious Swiss institution with a focus on applied economics, and develop the skills required for well-grounded economic policy analysis using appropriate theoretical and empirical tools. This programme is unique in Switzerland and among the very few existing in Europe with a particular emphasis on the economic role of the State.

The language of instruction is English. The lectures take place on the premises of the Faculty of Economics, ideally located close to the Lake of Neuchâtel and within walking distance of the railway station and city center.

"The program is rich, diversified and taught by Professors/lecturers with different backgrounds. This heterogeneity allowed me to discover several domains and it was useful at the time of deciding the specialization field related to the job market."
