MAREB offers high-quality training in academic and professional research, providing analytical and quantitative tools to address today’s economic challenges. The programme rigorously integrates theoretical knowledge and its application to real economic problems.

This one-year Master taught completely in English offers fields of specialization in entrepreneurship studies and applied economics:
a) Entrepreneurship and management of small and medium enterprises, with particular emphasis on business creation and management.
b) Applied economics, focused on the relationship between market performance and public intervention.

All students share a high level module in Quantitative Research Methods containing mathematics, applied statistics and econometrics and another one in Applied Economics and Business. Each specialization field then includes one elective module. The programme is completed with an individual master’s thesis consisting of an original piece of research.

The Master draws from the experience of two previous Research Masters at UAB: Applied Economics and Entrepreneurship, offered by the departments of Applied Economics and Business, respectively.
