Study at the University of Essex and the University of Konstanz

Double Degree option in the M.Sc. Economics

Are you interested in an internationally oriented course of studies?

Would you like to finish your Master's programme with two renowned Master's degrees?

In cooperation with the renowned Department of Economics at the University of Essex, the Department of Economics at Konstanz offers a Double Degree option for its MSc Economics students.

The agreement encompasses these three programmes:

MSc Economics
MSc Economics and Econometrics
MRes Economics

In this option five to ten students from each university who are interested in an internationally focused  and carefully academically conceptualised course of studies will be given the possibly of spending a year in Konstanz and a year in at Essex. These students will obtain a Masters degree from each university. The degree programme is aimed at those students of economics who are particularly motivated and have an excellent academic record. It offers a high degree of flexibility in deciding which subject areas to focus on during their course of studies. Students commence studies either in Konstanz or Essex.

The combination of the quantitative education in Konstanz with an applied curriculum in Essex firstly inspired me in doing a PhD in Economics.
Felix Ehrenfried, Double Degree Konstanz-Essex

The University of Essex offers both compulsory modules in line with the requirements at Konstanz, and enables students to specialise in a subject area complementary to what Konstanz offers.

The combination of studies at the two universities is based on a clear structure. It allows the students to experience two influential and complementary academic systems, in turn giving them an enriching experience and boosting their employability. Through the degree programme, moreover, the students will profit from the interaction of two cultures, experiencing for themselves international relations.
