What can you use this qualification for?
NMBU School of Economics and Business will give you skills in economic analysis and broad insights on how economies work. You get extensive training in economic theory and analysis, in accordance with national and international standards.
In many of the more advanced courses, class sizes are small, allowing for more problem-oriented learning approaches where in-class discussion is central to the learning process.
This Master programme consists of some required theory and methods courses and the option to choose a specialization in one or more sub-disciplines in economics, such as:
• Environment, Climate and Energy Economics – Environment and Climate Oriented
• Environment, Climate and Energy Economics – Energy Oriented
• Development and Global Change
• Financial and Commodity Market Analysis
• Agri-Food Markets
Each specialization has a set of required core courses that can be supplemented with electives from organizational sciences and business management. Alternatively, you can choose a general program with a more interdisciplinary profile, by selecting electives from other faculties at NMBU such as in natural sciences, technology or other social sciences to tailor your education to your special interests. The completion of the degree culminates with the submission of a thesis and the successful oral defense of the work.
