The Economic Analysis (ECO) major will give you a solid background to work as a specialist, advisor or manager within various lines of business and organizations, and especially for jobs that require insights and analytical competence at a high professional level.The major sheds light on a wide range of economic issues, covering business analysis, finance and economics. Compared to other majors that offer courses in similar subjects, ECO courses have a stronger emphasis on understanding the validity and limitations of methods and models. The increased emphasis on understanding the methods and models, rather than just being able to apply them, helps students’ competence stay relevant in a future work place with increasing degrees of automation.

The three main areas in ECO — financial economics, business analysis and economics — offer opportunities for specialisation. At the same time, emphasis is placed on the close links that exist between the subjects. This gives you the possibility to specialise within one area, but also to choose valuable combinations across areas.

Financial economics covers key methods in advanced investments/asset pricing, corporate finance and corporate governance, derivatives pricing and risk management, and insurance economics and macroeconomic analysis. A common feature of the courses is that they focus on the main insights and assumptions behind important finance models, and emphasize their strengths and weaknesses. The overall aim is to increase students’ sophistication and help them avoid naive or misleading model applications.

Business analysis focuses on how value creation in an organisation can be measured, analysed and managed in the best possible way. The subject is covered through courses in management accounting, accounting and capital markets, economic organisation theory, analysis and applications of auctions and tenders, and of principles for dynamic pricing.

The subject of economics offers courses in key areas such as microeconomics, international macroeconomics, industrial organisation, taxation and resource economics. At the same time, ECO provides good opportunities for combining this with closely related courses in financial economics and business analysis.

The major ensures a solid methodological base through courses in decision- and game theory, optimisation techniques, econometrics, and time series analysis.
