Master in Quantitative Economic Analysis (QEA)
QEA is a two-year English-taught master´s degree programme available at the Faculty of Informatics and Statistics (FIS) of VŠE. It is meant for those who see their professional future in statistical data analysis, economic modelling and forecasting or operational research, either in private companies or public bodies.
To successfully complete the whole curriculum (120 ECTS credits), it is necessary to take eleven compulsory courses (totalling 60 ECTS), several elective courses (for 15 ECTS), a minor specialization (several courses totalling 30 ECTS), two final state exams (9 ECTS) and prepare a master´s thesis (6 ECTS).
The key areas of study are statistics, econometrics, decision analysis and operational research. Within the minor specialization, students will get a deeper knowledge of insurance mathematics.
There is also an optional study abroad component: the third QEA semester can be completed at a university abroad, usually within the VŠE exchange programme.
Applications for 2017/18
Those interested in starting QEA in September 2017 need to submit their application by 28 February or by 30 April 2017. Applicants have to be ready to complete an online application, pay a fee of 50 EUR and send a set of documents, including e.g. a transcript of records, proof of English language knowledge, CV and a recommendation letter.
