As a graduate student in Mathematics-Economics, you will work with economic modelling and its deeper foundation in advanced mathematics and statistics.

Economic modelling applies to the macro-economic calculations that are used, for example, by Danmarks Nationalbank and the European Central Bank.

Other areas of use are the modelling of financial risks used by banks and insurance companies; forecasting, where interest rates or other key economic variables are predicted; and management and planning of production and traffic.

The MSc programme in Mathematics-Economics puts a great deal of emphasis on mathematical and statistical theory. Therefore, your primary motivation for choosing this programme should be your interest in mathematics.

Career Opportunities  

The job opportunities are very good for MSc graduates in mathematics-economics. For example, many mathematical economists work in Denmark and abroad in the financial sector with advanced model development for banks and insurance companies, and others work at national banks and public institutions, and also as researchers at universities.

The close collaboration and relationship with economics is also reflected in the fact that many economic advisers and experts are mathematical economists.

    North Campus


    North Campus

    With the Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet) as the next door neighbour, the Faculty of Science and Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences are very well placed in the North Campus. North Campus is an ideal setting for interdisciplinary reseach fields. Massive investments in research infrastructure, including the construction of the Niels Bohr Building and the Maersk Building,  are currently being made to develop the area around the North Campus into Copenhagen Science City. North Campus is very centrally located and transport links are excellent. Many students and teacher  also use their bike, and biking in Copenhagen is easy and convenient.
