Application Deadline

The Barcelona GSE Economics Program prepares students for technically demanding jobs and doctoral programs.

The Economics Program's dual theoretical and empirical approach gives students an excellent grounding and deep understanding of the field's foundations and applications, with specific focus on data analysis. Students will learn how to use powerful analytical and quantitative tools, and they will design and conduct an independent master's project.

At the beginning of the Master's students will be offered clear guidance on how to optimally tailor their course choice to their specific learning objectives and professional aspirations:

Theoretical foundations and strong quantitative analysis to prepare for PhD programs

After this Master's program, students are fully prepared to start an Economics PhD program at UPF or any other top university in the United States or Europe.

Students interested in applying to the UPF PhD track will need to apply at the end of the first term of the Economics Program. Depending on the background of the student, the student may take a track on theoretical foundations of Economics and strong quantitative analysis, or a combination of this with more applied courses, such as Data Science courses.

Specialized elective courses to develop applied skills for professional careers

The Economics Master's program offers a large variety of courses in Applied Economics to prepare students to fulfill the new demands of a highly competitive job market.

In particular, we offer Data Science courses designed for economists and other social scientists that allow students to acquire new skills besides traditional econometrics and quantitative analysis. A large variety of applied courses in specific fields will complement more general and technical courses.

By the end of the Economics Program, students will be ideally positioned to work in international organizations, financial institutions, consulting companies, private firms, etc. We work closely with all categories of employers to anticipate their professional needs and understand which skills are most demanded.

The Economics Program course list is broad enough to offer specialized training in a number of areas, such as:

  • Macroeconomics with a focus on monetary and fiscal policy
  • Microeconomics
  • Data Science for Economists
  • Political Economy
  • Labor and Public Economics
  • International Economics
  • Development Economics
  • Business and Market Organization
  • Behavioral and Experimental Economics
