The Master's Programme in Economics at the University of Helsinki is social-science oriented and more mathematical and quantitative than at other Finnish universities. It offers diverse opportunities to study different methods of economics. Consequently, an economics degree from the University of Helsinki is highly valued in the job market.
Teaching in the Master's Programme in Economics is arranged in cooperation with the departments of economics at Aalto University and Hanken School of Economics. Together with the discipline of economics at the University of Helsinki, they form the Helsinki Graduate School of Economics (Helsinki GSE). The unit offers the most extensive selection of economics courses in Finland.
The highly demanding programme includes two study tracks: the general track with a quantitative emphasis quite similar to other international Master’s Programmes and the research track which prepares students for doctoral studies in Economics.
