Economics (MEP)

Master of Science (M.Sc.)

How do companies function and how do they interact with banks, international economies and the government? If you have already considered these questions during your Bachelor degree, and were interested in both economics and management studies and would like to develop your knowledge further, then you should take the English-language Master in Economics at the University of Freiburg!

The Master in Economics has a strong international focus – so as well as gaining expertise in economics you will also learn new cultures and languages, benefit from the different academic backgrounds of your fellow students, and build up an international network from the first day of your studies. Here you will also find renowned teachers of economics, a broad interdisciplinary range and one of the most beautiful study locations in Germany.

Please note:
From the summer semester 2020 on there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
