Course Requirements for Admission

As mentioned in the curriculum, admission to the 5+3 programme is based on a successfully completed Master's degree in Economics or Mathematics-Economics from the University of Copenhagen (or equivalent). It is an additional admission requirement, not automatically satisfied by these two master's degrees, that the applicant must have completed at least one relevant advanced course within each core discipline of macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics.

The current, specific requirement for these advanced courses is that they must train the student to master technically advanced material in macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics. The applicant must provide proof of courses that are at least equivalent to the following Economics courses1 in each of the three areas:

Macroeconomics: Advanced Marcroeconomics Business Cycles, Economic Growth or Monetary Policy. And the previous courses Advanced Macroeconomics2 and Monetary Economics Macro Aspects2

Microeconomics: Mechanism Design. And the previos course Game Theory2

Econometrics: Advanced Microeconometrics or Advanced Macroeconomics Structural Vector Autoregressive Analysis. And the previos course Advanced Macroeconometrics2

1. The content and term of the courses are described in the course catalogue.
2. The courses are discontinued from the course offering, but a passed course is the ever-qualifying.
