A Master in Economics gives you the tools to better understand how markets and more generally societies function. Economics analyzes social problems by modelling and measuring the behavior of humans or human organizations such as firms. Economics can address questions as diverse as: Why has poverty decreased in the world? How can we achieve sustainable growth? How should we allocate children to schools? Why are house prices much higher in some cities than others? Or how much discrimination is there in society?
