Economic Policy Analysis (EPA)
This research-oriented master program conveys the necessary skills for students to analyze on their own complex economic problems, issues and policy solutions with the help of advanced empirical methods, analytical research skills and theoretical models.
The policy-oriented program focuses on theoretical and empirical analyses of economic policy measures in different areas, such as trade, the environment, or the labor market and social policy. Tools studied and applied for this purpose include both traditional theoretical analyses, advanced empirical methods for evidence-based policy analysis, and behavioral economic analyses, such as laboratory experiments.
