Choosing to do the MSc (Applied Economics) programme at NTU proved to be the right thing to do as it gave me both the theoretical foundations and practical skills needed for more advanced empirical research at work. The curriculum is also well-planned, giving us a good breadth and depth of topics. The programme will provide a good foundation for anyone who wishes to pursue a career requiring research and quantitative skills.
I chose the NTU MSc Applied Economics programme for its defining focus on applied econometrics and policy analysis. The programme combines theoretical rigor with application of economic ideas to a wide range of real-world issues. The diversity of classmates from different industries and background exposed me to new viewpoints and perspectives. The broad spectrum of modules offered allows me the flexibility to tailor my curriculum according to my academic interests and work schedule. This programme has strengthened my quantitative skills and improved my analytical competency.
