Welcome to the Linnaeus University's Master Programme in Economics!
Congratulations! You have been admitted to a master programme that will prepare you for a large range of challenging careers as an analyst or consultant in business, consultancy companies, financial and government institutions. After finishing the programme, you will be equipped with state-of-the-art skills in econometrics, big data analysis, machine learning and economic policy evaluation. You will be part of a group of students from many different countries and backgrounds. Your teachers are all active researchers who are experts in their areas. Our programme is under constant development with the help of our alumni network of former programme students who are employed in companies, consultancies and institutions worldwide.
With this letter, we would like to welcome you and provide you with important information before the start of the semester.
The programme code of your programme is EANA2. The programme is provided by the Department of Economics and Statistics at the School of Business and Economics at Linnaeus University (AACSB accredited).
The programme covers 120 credits and two years. It is a fulltime campus programme, i.e., you are supposed to study fulltime, usually one course at a time for roughly five weeks each.
Residence Permit and Tuition Fee
Start the process of applying for a Swedish residence permit as early as possible as the process can take several months. You can only start the programme if you are on campus when the programme starts on August 28 on campus Växjö. In order to start the programme, your tuition fee must have arrived in time. Payments can take up to several weeks depending on the country of origin. More information about tuition fees can be found at: www.lnu.se/en/student/new-student/tuition-fees-and-scholarships/
Obtain a student account and register
You must register to the programme and courses to start studying in your programme. In order to register, you need a student account. On www.lnu.se/en/student/new-student/ you find information on how to get an account. Last day to register is Monday August 28, the start of the programme. If you do not register in time, you will lose your place in the programme for this year and students from the waiting list will take your place. Once you have registered, you will have access to our online learning platform MyMoodle. This platform contains course rooms for each course, and a programme room for the master programme. This platform is used for communication between students and teachers. The programme room of your programme is found here: https://mymoodle.lnu.se/course/view.php?id=39829
Your reading list for each course can be found at the end of each course syllabus, which you find here: https://lnu.se/en/student/during-your-studies/course-and-programme-syllabi/
Type in the course codes 4NA060, 4NA061, 4NA063, 4NA062 to see your courses for the first semester (Fall 2023). If more than one syllabus version is available, choose the latest one.
We start with a compulsory programme introduction meeting on Monday, August 28, 08:15 - 10:00 on campus Växjö, room H1311V If you need help finding your way, see our map at: https://lnu.se/en/meet-linnaeusuniversity/ contact-and-visit-us/map/
If you cannot take part in the course/programme introduction on Monday 28, please contact: Thomas Giebe, firstname.lastname@example.org
Mathematics preparation before the programme
The first course in your programme is 4NA060 Advanced Mathematical Economics. The time table with lectures and exercises will be found here. We highly recommend that before the start of the programme, you check your mathematics skills and work on them during the summer if necessary.
To compare your skills, check the programme syllabus of the bachelor mathematics course 1NA070. These are the skills you should have at the start of the master programme.
We recommend the textbook
Sydsaeter, K. & Hammond, P. Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis
which contains all material for the course 1NA070. This book will also be used during your mathematics course 4NA060, so you need it anyway.
In case you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to your programme director via email: Thomas Giebe, email@example.com
We are here for you to help you get started!
Looking forward to meeting you in person in Växjö and being part of your journey!
