The master’s specialisation consists of two elective seminars, one compulsory course, four elective courses, and a master’s thesis distributed over five blocks of eight weeks. The compulsory course on analytical, spatial and statistical skills is essential in order to be able to properly analyse relevant data and to critically assess findings in available literature for the seminars and the master’s thesis. The seminars are the central components of the master’s specialisation. They are highly interactive with several assignments where students are expected to analyse real-world cases and report their findings. Students may tailor the master to their own interests by choosing from a range of seminars and courses choices offered. The courses acquaint students with a range of topics that are central in Urban, Port and Transport Economics. During the last part of the programme, students will focus on writing their master’s thesis. As this is an individual task, each student will perform under close supervision by a member of the academic staff.
