Multidisciplinary Economics at Utrecht University

Two-year Research Master's Programme
From upheavals in the housing market to high bonuses for bankers, from rising taxes to the global credit crisis, economics is no longer a straightforward matter of money and finance. Economics today is a multifaceted discipline with real impact on  global politics, law, and society.  In the Utrecht University MSc in Multidisciplinary Economics, you will  learn to cross the borders of economics into other scientific disciplines – a real strength of the Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.) -  in order to provide sound research and applicable solutions to  real-world problems, now and in the future.
The two-year Research Master in Multidisciplinary Economics was carefully designed to give you the specialised knowledge and expertise you need for a career in economics. Moreover, the multidisciplinary context will encourage you to look at complex economics issues from different perspectives and help you to apply that knowledge in academia, industry or government.

"Next to the thorough coverage of economic methodology, the strong interdisciplinary content of the Master has enabled me to look at economic issues from different perspectives." - Cherry Muijsson , MSc graduate."

Why in Utrecht:

A real-world perspective
The statement ‘the real-world perspective’ summarises succinctly U.S.E.’s mission. It indicates a strong awareness of the complex socio-economic reality: human behaviour is not always ‘rational’ and markets are not always in equilibrium. Institutions are important in understanding economic dynamics and so are the dimensions of time and space. The real world perspective leads to a multidisciplinary-economics approach, a research profile that favours crossing borders between academic disciplines, but also – within the economics discipline – between economics and business. U.S.E. aims to contribute to a society where people thrive, by taking a broad view on welfare and all factors involved. Well-being, cooperation, innovation and curiosity are the core values in the academic profile of U.S.E.

"The multidisciplinary context encourages you to look at complex economics issues from different perspectives."
Programme director dr. Kris De Jaegher

Multidisciplinary Economics at Utrecht University: Career

The MSc in Multidisciplinary Economics is a comprehensive and versatile degree that will leave you well prepared for a range of different careers. As a Research Master’s degree, it provides good preparation for a PhD; content from the MSc often contributes towards your PhD programme, reducing the time spent in the doctoral programme. In previous years, graduates from this programme have gone on to work on a PhD dissertation at various international universities. This MSc is also a great starting point for a research-oriented career in economics and finance.
 
Towards an academic career
Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.) has an average of 12 PhD students, each working towards their doctoral degree under the supervision of a professor. As the second year of the Research Master’s in Multidisciplinary Economics covers material from the PhD programme, you can complete your doctoral programme in three rather than four years. During this time, you write and submit a thesis, and are encouraged and supported in establishing yourself as an academic researcher by publishing journal articles and contributing to local and international seminars and conferences.

Under the supervision of one or more specialists in the field, you are employed or  receive a grant to write a PhD dissertation on a (typically multidisciplinary) economics topic in which you become a specialist. Your research leads to publishable papers, and you become an academic at a university, or a research-oriented economist at a national or international organisation, bank, or financial institution (see further information below). Former Research Master’s students have become PhD candidates at Utrecht University, either within U.S.E. or at another UU department such as the Department of History and Art history; at another Dutch university such as University of Tilburg, Groningen University, Free University of Amsterdam; or at international universities such as Cambridge University, University of Edinburgh or the European University Institute Florence.

Towards a professional career
You may become an applied economist at a national or international organisation such as a ministry, a central bank, a private bank, or a financial institution. You will apply the academic knowledge you have acquired during your studies to concrete, real-life problems. Depending on the type of function, you may follow such a path immediately after completing the Research Master’s or after first having completed a PhD. Former Research Master’s students who pursued such a career currently work at organisations like the CPB Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis or at international banks (for example the Asian Development Bank).

Institutions are important in understanding economic dynamics and so are the dimensions of time and space.

The Tjalling C. Koopmans Research Institute (TKI) at U.S.E. cooperates closely with the Research Master’ s programme and focuses on the following three research areas, in addition to its core area of multidisciplinary economics:

  • Institutions and welfare
  • Sustainability and globalisation
  • Business strategy and governance
  • Allows you to tailor the programme to your own research interests and ambitions

The programme combines a solid foundation in economics and economic methodology with insights from different academic fields.

The programme is based around small lectures and tutorial classes, an ideal environment for promoting peer interaction and ensuring you get the most from our high-quality academic staff. Besides this you will join  a close community of students who are  taking courses as one group. The mix of students and lecturers from the Netherlands and abroad gives the programme a unique international environment.

The programme
The UUBC kicks off in February with an introductory weekend. You will receive professional training and form a team with which you will be working on assignments and projects throughout the course. The programme consists of 3 main elements:
