    Master's Programme (Two years) in Economic Growth, Population and Development ↗️

    This programme aims to explore the general history of production and distribution, population and living standards, institutions and social organisation. The programme offers knowledge to carry out investigations and analyses concerning changes of social and economic conditions under different circumstances.

    Specialisation tracks

    When applying to this programme you select one of three tracks: Economic History Track, Economic Demography Track or the Economic Development Track.

    Knowledge of the past is essential for understanding today’s world and shaping the future. In the Economic History track you will develop advanced insights into the long-term development of societies. By combining analytical tools from economics and the social sciences with a contextual understanding of conditions in the past, you will become able to use the accumulated human experience to solve current-day problems. Central themes studied are growth, stagnation, crises and distribution of resources.

    Changes in population have an impact on everything from taxes, school systems, labour markets and health care to marketing and sales of products and services. The Economic Demography track will provide you with theory, methods and skills necessary to explain a number of social and economic phenomena. Key topics include mortality and the demographic transition, the labour market, migration patterns and health issues. The programme enables you to better understand and tackle global issues tied to employment, welfare and public health.

    Economic development essentially rests on three pillars: income per capita growth, distribution of the fruits of growth and structural change. The interaction of these elements constitutes the process of development. The Economic Development track will engage students in a variety of aspects and analyses of how and why the process of development in some places gets underway and in other places tend to stall. The programme will cover debates and theories on the reasons for economic backwardness and successful catching up, the institutional underpinnings of long term growth, as well as qualitative and quantitative techniques in managing and modelling empirical material.

    Career prospects

    Graduates of this programme will be equipped with the methods and analytical skills to pursue a broad range of careers in both public and private sector, within government agencies, national bureaus and administrations, think tanks and research organisations, analyst firms and multinational companies.

    Given the wide scope of the programme and its interdisciplinary nature, graduates can expect employment opportunities within a multitude of areas, depending on the selected track.

    Many graduates from the Economic History track choose to work at national or international organisations in positions requiring analytical skills. Recent graduates work at the European Centre for International Political Economy (ECIPE), the German parliament, the UN, HSBC, Hong Kong Banking Services, and Nordea.

    The Economic Demography track meets the demand for demographic studies at all levels of government, as well as in the private sector. Marketing, insurance and municipal planning are three areas where demographic skills are in increasing demand.

    The Economic Development track enables you to pursue careers within institutions working on economic development of both emerging economies and the least developed countries, such as the World Bank, EU, OECD, WTO, NGOs, banks, multinational companies and consulting firms.

    The programme also provides excellent prep­aration for PhD studies, regardless of your chosen track.

    The full programme compromises of two years of full-time studies, but there will be a provision to leave after one year with a Master of Science (60 ECTS credits).
