Admission is based on academic excellence.

Any additional qualifications such as a second bachelor's degree, a master's degree, or other graduate study should be mentioned in the application. Ideally, applicants will have previously studied mathematics, applied mathematics, quantitative economics or finance but candidates with other backgrounds are welcomed.

What I would highlight: QEM has equipped me with various tools in advanced methodologies and models in economics and the possibility of connecting ideas from financial modeling, game theory and econometrics to modeling life situations. These experiences has instilled in me the interest for research and further study. Through QEM, I am now familiar with some European cultures and languages.

JEMES - Joint European Master Programme in Environmental Studies

What I would highlight: I was on the York-CEU mobility track. York provided a strong theoretical focus on public administration and public policy, while CEU’s array of classes and rigorous attention to practical application of policy skills vastly increased my ambition for future employment. Further, the diverse student body allowed me to become familiar with systems and institutions across the world in a manner in which I never thought possible. These scholastic attributes combined with the opportunity to live in two magnificent – if diametrically different – European cities, proved to be a unique and awesome experience that I would recommend to anyone. Currently, I am working at the Center for Media and Communication Studies, where I am continuing work that I began during my studies at CEU, and have initiated a new project on Internet Freedom of Expression in coordination with an international NGO.

5.0 01/09/2012
What I would highlight: The EMFOL MSc in Animal-Derived Foods met my expectations of a world-class academic programme. My professors are basically the authors of some of the books and journal articles that I have based my previous and current research on. Further, they are very approachable and motivating, especially in pursuing deeper knowledge and experience in food science. Lastly the international student department is highly efficient and reliable. You are assured that you are well taken care of.

MUNDUS MAPP - Erasmus Mundus Master's in Public Policy

Rian Elizabeth Wanstreet
5.0 01/09/2011
What I would highlight: My two years as an Erasmus Mundus scholar has transformed my life in surprising ways. I came into the program having already worked in a professional environment for a number of years, and I had strong expectations for what I needed from the program. Yet I found that while I indeed gained the tools I desired, the program offered me much more.

Course programme

The first year focuses on core courses in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics and Mathematics (Probability, Statistics and Optimization). The first semester is spent in Paris. To facilitate student mobility during the second semester, the universities offer almost identical courses. For a detailed first year programme, see here.

The second year focuses on specialisation and is spent in one of the four consortium universities. There are several areas of specialisation on offer, such as:

  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • International Economics
  • Finance
  • Econometrics
  • Mathematical Economics
  • Game Theory
  • Behavioural Economics
  • Experimental Economics
  • Public Economics
  • Political Economy

These being areas which are emergent, rapidly evolving, and of growing impact upon society, there is much demand for specialised competencies in these fields. This list is subject to change. For a detailed second year programme, see here.
