The Master in Economic Policy and Quantitative Methods (EPQM) is a four-semester English-language program that equips students with specialized knowledge in quantitative methods for evidence-based economic policy analysis. Based on a strong theoretical foundation, the program focuses on two core branches, one in economic policy and one in quantitative methods which enables students to empirically assess economic policy using statistical software packages (e.g. STATA, R, Matlab). Students will profit from the department’s great staff-to-student ratios, its fruitful exchange with external research institutions (DIW, PIK, MCC) and opportunities from the accompanying internship program through the Center for Economic Policy Analysis (CEPA).
The Master in EPQM builds on our successful Bachelor programs in Economics (Volkswirtschaftslehre) and Policy and Economics (Politik und Wirtschaft) where students are well prepared for entering the Master program.
