Master in Economics and Finance (MEF) is a two-year English-language Master's degree programme, which aims to give the student a thorough grounding in both theoretical and applied economics. Emphasis is put on developing abstract analytical reasoning, which lets the students solve complex economic problems in various settings. Applicants must have solid background in Mathematics and good command of English.
