The Master’s Programme in Quantitative Economics and Finance (MiQE/F) offers a high-quality graduate education combining theory and quantitative methods. Building on a set of core courses, students choose from numerous electives to specialise in economics, finance or econometrics. The MiQE/F prepares students for ambitious careers requiring a deep understanding of economics and finance, combined with a rigorous competence in quantitative methods. This combination provides MiQE/F graduates with a competitive advantage on the job market and offers access to highly selective Ph.D. programmes worldwide.

The Master in Quantitative Economics and Finance (MiQEF) provides extensive training in econometric and quantitative methods and a strong specialisation in finance.

The MiQEF course is designed to offer an in-depth education in economics, which equips our students to tackle the complexities of the global economy in a unique manner.

It is often the case that economists lack a good education in quantitative methods and statisticians lack the necessary background in economics or finance. But due to growing complexity of the global economy:

competition is leading to increasing reliance on quantitative methods for analysing and forecasting business, sales and other economic trends.
quantitative methods are now an essential tool in scientific research.

Individual study profile
Students enjoy great opportunities to tailor their own individual study profile. A defining characteristic of the MiQEF is the extensive training in mathematical, statistical and econometric methods for quantitative analysis in economics and finance. This is a distinct advantage in the job market for careers demanding strong quantitative skills.

Large menu of courses
Students can individually choose from a large menu of courses (including courses from other programmes, if they are offered in English). By selecting courses from the menu of core electives and free electives, students can specialise in one or more of the following fields. The three optional specialisation areas can also be flexibly combined:

Quantitative economics
Quantitative finance
Corporate finance, banking and insurance
