The Master of Science in Economics, major in Economic Policy offered by the University of Neuchâtel is perfectly aligned with the European standards in this area.
The Master of Science in Economics programme is open to holders of a Bachelor's degree in economics, business, political and social sciences, law and other relevant sciences delivered by a Swiss university or a degree considered equivalent, subject to prior evaluation of the application by the admission committee. Highly motivated candidates who do not hold a degree in economics or business but who possess a solid basis in core economic disciplines can be admitted directly. Those who show larger deficiencies in terms of their economics background are required to complete a "catch-up" programme (two semesters maximum) before embarking on the regular MScECON curriculum. Fluency in English is required.
