The Master’s programme in Economics at Radboud University is a one-year, full-time study programme with seven specialisations: Accounting and Control, Corporate Finance and Control, Financial Economics, International Business, International Economics and Development, Economics, Behaviour and Policy and International Political Economy.
We complement traditional Economics with insights from related disciplines such as Political Science, Psychology and Sociology, what we call ‘Economics+’. Based on a solid theoretical background in economics, we will shift your knowledge frontier by offering a broad perspective and teach you to think out of the box. You will learn about contemporary issues in Economics and Business by studying various real-world cases, scenarios, and firms and mastering the different theoretical approaches needed to understand these issues. Combined with applied knowledge from the many guest lectures, you will acquire in-depth knowledge that can be readily applied in today’s globalising world.
Education and research at Radboud University go hand in hand. Our lecturers are active in academic and applied research. They incorporate the latest academic developments and applied issues in their teaching. In our Master’s programme, professors and students interact in small groups, thus strengthening the academic atmosphere. Our programme is indeed strongly academic. We believe in teaching a solid theoretical background and a broad range of economics theories so that students thoroughly understand not just what is happening but also why and how. However, we never lose sight of practical relevance.
Real-world cases, guest speakers and the latest theoretical perspectives on current events will help you become a professional who attracts potential employers immediately after graduation.

The Nijmegen School of Management has over 180 Erasmus contracts and more than 50 bilateral agreements with universities outside of Europe.
