The Department of Economics
at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
(UFAE), together with the Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica
(IAE), jointly organize IDEA
, an international graduate program in Economics comprised of a Master's program and a PhD program. Both programs provide students with a solid training in Economics which emphasizes rigorous analytical thinking and advanced quantitative methods. Some Master's students take on careers in the private sector and in governmental and non-governmental institutions, while others, after two years of training (120 ECTS) go on to pursue a doctoral degree either with us or abroad.
