Profile, Module Handbook, and Flyer

Starting in the fall of 2017, the Master in Quantitative Economics offers exceptionally talented students a fast track to careers as academic and professional economists, providing them with the most advanced tools and methods in quantitative economics. 

Its setup is comparable to the first two years of the best PhD programs in the US and the UK.

The training is research-oriented and combines demanding courses in the core fields of economics with a strong focus on advanced mathematical and statistical methods. Students will work on joint or own research projects in their third semester which enables them to specialize in their fields of interest early on and produce original research in their Master Theses. Soft skills and key competence courses round up the training.

The faculty at LMU, one of the largest and most renowned in Economics in Germany, is committed to an intense supervision concept: Each student in the MQE will be assigned a mentor of the core faculty as well as a postdoctoral mentor, taking into account the student’s research interest.
