A master's degree is an academic degree granted to individuals who have undergone study demonstrating a mastery or high-order overview of a specific field of study or area of professional practice.

Those who study economics first and foremost learn the differences between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics involves the behavior of individual markets, such as households and firms, and their interactions.

For 20 years, pioneering thinkers and practitioners have been developing alternative economic ideas, models and experiments that were once considered radical and marginal. As we turn to face a new economic dawn, these theories and practices are now moving centre stage.... [-]
