M. Sc. Economics and Finance
You have finished a B.Sc. with a strong focus on Econometrics? You further have a general interest in financial markets and products? Then, what about starting the M.Sc. in Economics and Finance at the University of Tübingen?
The M. Sc. in Economics and Finance combines the strengths of our faculty in Econometrics and Finance. Just recently, a crisis originating in the financial sector has proved to have severe consequences for economies and societies worldwide. It is therefore of the utmost importance that managers in the financial sector, regulatory offices and central banks have a sound understanding of the theory and real-world processes of financial markets as well as of financial instruments designed for risk sharing.
Graduating from this program, you will be able to apply econometric methods to analyze financial data and to assess the validity of theoretical predictions and scientific forecasts for the financial sector. You will understand how prices of risky assets are (or should be) determined. Moreover, you will understand why financial instruments like Options or Futures can increase social welfare, even though they may involve considerable risks for individual investors and society as a whole. In addition to field courses focusing on these issues, you may choose complementary elective courses according to your own preferences.
Graduating from this program is a first step towards an ambitious professional career in private and public institutions.
