Your Stepping Stone for an Academic Career

Tinbergen Institute Research Master Economics

The TI research master programme is the best way to start an academic career in economics, econometrics or finance

After the first year of thorough grounding in economics, econometrics and finance, the second year offers over 40 advanced specialization courses. Students are encouraged to check several options before choosing a research topic and a supervisor. Half of the second year is devoted to thesis research under expert supervision. In most cases, the master thesis supervisor continues as PhD thesis supervisor. A jumpstart of your PhD career!

The study programme includes three tracks: economics, econometrics and finance

The Research Master in Economics offers advanced courses and yields 120 EC. Current information on the study programme and all courses can be found here

In the first year, all tracks offer rigorous training in the core subjects and tools of economics, econometrics and finance. Tinbergen Institute allows students to explore the research groups of three faculties in economics before they commit to work on a thesis with a specific advisor.

In the second year, students specialize in their choice from among the institute’s many fields of research through field course work and research master thesis research.

Students receive a lot in return from the Tinbergen Institute

What does Tinbergen Institute offer to students?

TI offers a welcoming environment to students: students have their own office space, the programme is stimulating collaboration and active student participation. The student body is closely knit group and at the same time a diverse cultural mix, with students coming from Europe, Asia and Latin America. The institute contributes financially to a social programme organized by and for students: students go ice skating, go to the museum night, have a joint end-of-the-block-dinner and an introduction weekend. The number of dropouts from the programme is close to zero. 

TI runs its own merit-based scholarship programme: over the years, TI financially supported some 50% of the students in the 1st year. Percentages are even higher for second year students. PhD students have an employment contract and a full salary.
