During the first semester the focus is on the theory and empirical methods of economics. The courses are designed to provide students with a thorough understanding of state-of-the-art models and techniques used in economic analysis.
In the second semester, focus shifts to applications and extensions. This part builds on the skills acquired during the first semester, and broadens and deepens the students’ knowledge of economics. Students choose between two specializations; Applied Economic Analysis or International Economics.
Students specializing in International Economics typically take two courses in International Economics and choose two other courses in economics.

Second-year MECON students also have the possibility, with some caveats, to take first-year PhD economics courses as part of their degree to count as elective courses.
Students need to fulfil an International Program Component, which may be done either by being accepted and successfully participating in the SSE Exchange Program, by taking two additional courses (in total 15 ECTS) in International Economics during semester 3 or by carrying out an internship abroad (8 weeks).
