Universität Innsbruck


In our master's program "Applied Economics" you will become part of our research community. You will develop an expert research mind-set required for a high-profile job in business, finance or the public sector – or a career as a researcher.
The master program is offered by the Faculty of Economics and Statistics, one of the leading European institutions for Empirical Economics and Data Science as well as Behavioral and Experimental Economics. Our research groups critically examine the decisions of individuals, the strategies of firms, and the policies of governments to understand and challenge the standard paradigms of economics and economic policy.
