Programme content

Through our research-based curriculum at Molde University College, we give our students the opportunity to build the deep understanding of Economics and Business Administration which is necessary to achieve a successful career in the modern world.

Your choice of study programme is important. It advertises to future employers what your interests are and what kind of work you can do. A master’s degree in Economics and Business Administration advertises to future employers that you are interested in economics and business and that you can handle difficult decisions. Our graduates are well-equipped to work as managers, advisors, or specialists, within various organizations in both the private sector and the public sector.

Our programme focuses on developing our students’ analytical skills to a high level. Analytical skills are important when you face difficult business decisions. The main profile of the programme is economic analysis. Our students learn how to use insights from economics to analyse important decisions both within the private sector (financial economics) and within the public sector (infrastructure investments, trade, growth, & sustainability). Our programme supports the development of economic knowledge with training in important analytical tools such as decision and game theory, statistics, and econometrics. Our goal is to equip our students with the necessary tools to write a master’s thesis which they proudly can show to potential employers as evidence of their capabilities. Our programme also gives our students the opportunity to broaden their knowledge by choosing electives from other fields within business administration such as organization, marketing, strategy, and logistics. Students may also choose to spend one semester abroad at one of our partner institutions to broaden their cultural knowledge.
