The Department of Business and Economics now offers a talent programme for current and future graduate students. The purpose of the talent programme is to provide motivated and talented students enrolled in either the MSc Economics or MSc Mathematics-Economics programmes the opportunity to strengthen their competences and acquire additional skills through special initiatives - specifically professional initiatives, which develop academic skills and skills that are relevant to the labour market. Therefore, the talent programme builds on to the knowledge, skills and competences, which are achieved through the graduate programme in which the student is enrolled.
The teaching in the talent programme is research-based and builds on the thought that learning and talent development is promoted by active participation of the students. The students will experience teaching from both active researchers and representatives from the labour market.
The talent programme consists of three different tracks. The first track is the Honor Track, which you, as a student, can be nominated for. The second track is the Talent Track, which is for those of you who wish to achieve extra ECTS points simultaneously with the regular courses. The third track is the Extra-Curricular Track, which you can apply for if you have participated in any extra activities that are related to your education programme and that do not give ECTS points. You have the possibility to follow one or more of the tracks. Econ Talents 2015 and 2016
