  • With us you will enjoy academic, intellectual, and personal communication with both academics, and representatives of our business partners
  • Along with the lectures and seminars, you will gain exclusive access to special academic and social events
  • Our previous cohorts include bright, highly motivated and hard-working students

Join our Programme to become part of AEEM's growing network of current students, lecturers, business representatives, and alumni.

The AEEM Master's Programme is taught entirely in English, and the courses are all based on standard leading textbooks and literature. The Programme contains six academic modules of logically sequenced courses. This provides for the gradual advancement of skills and knowledge needed for the complete understanding of econometric and economic modules.

The programme starts with an extensive course on the mathematical and statistical foundations. That allows for the smooth transition to the theory and toolkits studied in the specialized core courses. The latter are devoted to static/dynamic econometric theory and methods, statistical learning, and microeconomic and macroeconomic modelling, among other.

In addition, courses based on using computational software environments such as R, Python, VBA, SQL, EViews, and SAS, provide a wide exposure to practical applications.

* Depending on the applicants' background, the Programme can be structured in either three or four full-time semesters. For more information on the admissions, click here.
