Economics and Finance (MEF)

Economics and Finance (MEF)

This programme aims to give the student a thorough grounding in both theoretical and applied economics. We emphasize developing abstract analytical reasoning, which allows our graduates to solve complex economic problems in various settings. The applicants must have a solid background in Mathematics and a good command of English. Courses are taught both by members of the Institute of Economic Studies (IES) and external professionals from the central bank, commercial banks and business analysts. Our graduates typically assume challenging positions in banking, consulting, investment funds and public administration.
