Addressing real-life policy issues

The Nova SBE Masters in Economics provides a unique learning experience that combines state-of-the-art theoretical and empirical techniques with a hands-on approach to real-life policy issues. The program is focused on the development and acquisition of the tools required for applied policy analysis, including econometric and numerical software, as well as modern econometric techniques for the evaluation of policy interventions.

The program is notable for the close interaction students have with teachers, participation in research projects and field work in Portugal and abroad, as well as the possibility to take part in exciting consulting projects.

Through a careful balance of mandatory courses, electives, specializations, skill modules and international tracks, the program has been carefully designed to ensure that students learn by doing, whilst also providing them with the essential concepts and skills required to succeed in the field, both during their studies and in the working world after graduation.
