The MSc program in Economics will equip you to address challenging economic problems and provide you with excellent tools to pursue careers in both the public and private sector.
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 your knowledge of 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.
Additionally, you have the possibility to apply for a semester abroad at one of our partner universities or work as trainee at one of our corporate partners which are involved in the Executive Trainee Module (XTM).

How to apply to SSE’s MSc program in Economics in four easy steps:
SSE requires the GMAT or GRE test as well as an English language test, unless you are exempted. Make sure to take / sit the tests by the application deadline (Nov 15 or Jan 15). Your application will not be considered, if the GMAT / GRE test is required for you and you do not attach the proof that you have taken the test.
Step 2: Fill in the online application and upload documents
The application to SSE is only submitted via SSE’s own online application portal and is free of charge.
Step 3: Possible interview
Sometimes, SSE gets in touch with applicants if they have any questions about the application. You would then be invited to a short interview via phone or on Zoom / Teams. Such an interview also offers, naturally, an occasion for you to ask questions about the program and how it could match your career goals.
Step 4: Acceptance, conditional acceptance or rejection
SSE does an overall assessment of all complete applications that that receive. They look at the university where you did your Bachelor's, the courses you have taken and the grades, GMAT / GRE scores, your English language skills, CV, motivation and the results of the assessment center.
Accepted students in their last year of the Bachelor program will receive a conditional acceptance.
