What our former students say

Joachim Welte, graduated in 2017

Welte Joachim 70x90.jpg

Scientific researcher, Swiss Federal Statistical Office, Neuchâtel, Switzerland

The MSc provided me with rich and interactivg teaching, as well as useful knowledge which I could swiftly transfer into the workplace. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to follow the Master's programme part time. This allowed to me to balance work and academic study, while entering the labour market with a recognised Master's degree and valuable working experience under my belt.

Cécile Hediger, graduated in 2015

Researcher / PhD candidate in Economics, University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland

The Master's programme was the ideal choice for me, as I had a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and wanted to follow a Master's programme oriented towards Economics. The topics covered during the programme are diverse, with concrete examples and contemporary themes such as environmental and energy policy. The small class size in Neuchâtel is a huge advantage, letting you get to know all of your classmates and the members of the Faculty. In my case, the programme convinced me to continue my studies at the University of Neuchâtel and pursue a PhD in Economics.

Gabriel Ayet, graduated in 2014

Economist at the Department of Health and Social Policy, State of Vaud, Lausanne, Switzerland

After completing my core set of courses, I searched actively for an internship in order to write my Master's dissertation. After a one-year internship, my employer offered me a full time position, which I gladly accepted. This Master's programme gave me the opportunity to think critically about various economic issues, and discover many applications of the tools and models that I had studied during my Bachelor's degree. I also furthered my command of the computer software which is now a mainstay of my daily professional duties. What I liked most about this programme was, without a doubt, the availability and proximity of the professors, as well as the friendly atmosphere afforded by small groups of students.

Natalie Cook, graduated in 2014


Economic Analyst, Department of Finance, Australia

Studying a Master of Science in Economics at UniNe provided me with an in-depth of knowledge of economic policy across all areas of government. Furthermore it gave me the opportunity to network with renowned economists from across Europe and established the pathway for me to gain an internship at the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Matthieu Aubert, graduated in 2012

Member of the board of directors at the Chamber for Commerce and Industry, Neuchâtel, Switzerland

For me, this was an ideal choice that fitted the logic of my professional path. With this programme, I gained experience in various domains of economic research (econometrics, social policy, energy, market regulation, etc.), which now help me in my daily job as a lobbyist.

Mélanie Gay, graduated in 2012

Swiss Federal Office of Energy, Bern, Switzerland

The programme is rich, its subject matter diverse, and its professors/lecturers hail from many different backgrounds. This variety allowed me to discover several domains, which was useful when deciding my field of specialisation in relation to the job market.

Dimitri Percia, graduated in 2011

Market Analyst at Cargil Trading, Geneva, Switzerland

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is. And the greatest strength of this Master's degree is its professors, who fully understand that. Lectures are delivered in such a way that you can apply them directly, which gives you a serious comparative advantage.
