Mensagem do(s) diretor(es)

The degree consists of one year of full-time coursework, plus one year for research and writing a dissertation. Both semesters in the first year provide solid foundations in the core subjects (microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics) and equip you with the tools of economic analysis while allowing you to choose three additional courses in the field. With a proper combination of electives, students may add a supplement to their diploma in one of the following thematic areas: Banking, and Financial and Monetary Markets; Regulation and Markets; and Computing and Modelling for Economics and Business. In the final two semesters, you will develop your dissertation under the supervision of a faculty member and will benefit from additional guidance in two seminars on economic research. The full programme provides 120 ECTS credits.

A rigorous preparation in Economics at the graduate level, in an accredited school such as IBS, opens up many career opportunities in areas within economics proper but also in finance and management. To be able to achieve this while living in the beautiful and welcoming city of Lisbon is one more reason to choose our programme.
