Programme Structure

The training is research-oriented and combines demanding courses in the core fields of economics with a strong focus on advanced mathematical and statistical methods. Students will work on joint or own research projects in their third semester which enables them to specialize in their fields of interest early on and produce original research in their Master Theses. Soft skills and key competence courses round up the training.

The faculty at LMU is committed to an intense supervision concept: Each student in the MQE will be assigned a mentor of the core faculty as well as a postdoctoral mentor, taking into account the student’s research interest.
