Before you apply to the master's degree programme in Economics, please make sure to acquaint yourself with all the important information on the application procedure, application deadlines and details about how to apply.

ARE YOU A CITIZEN IN DENMARK, EU, EEA OR SWITZERLAND?

ARE YOU A CITIZEN IN A COUNTRY OUTSIDE EU, EEA OR SWITZERLAND?

Prioritisation of applicants

The programme accepts a maximum of 210 students in September 2020.

Applicants with a legal right of admission will not be subject to assessment and selection, as they are guaranteed a place.

Selection criteria

If more applicants than the maximum intake fulfill the admission requirements, a selection will be made on the basis of a comprehensive evaluation, with emphasis on the following criteria:

  • Grades from the qualifying bachelor’s degree.
  • Grades achieved for bachelor courses relevant to the MSc in Economics, i.e. microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics.
  • Statement of purpose for wanting to study Economics (maximum 1 page) covering your motivation for applying.

Do you have a master degree?

If you already have a master's degree from Denmark or another country, you can, in principle, only be admitted to a new degree programme if there are places available on the programme for which you are applying for admission (the master's degree admission rule).

In exceptional cases, we may grant dispensation from the master’s degree admission rule.
