UPCOMING EVENTS

 

MCom (Magister Commercii) and MSc (Magister Scientiae) programmes

With a Master of Commerce (MCom) in Economics or International Trade, or a Master of Science (MSc) in Agricultural Economics from the North-West University, you will encounter many exciting opportunities. You could, for example, deepen your knowledge by pursuing a PhD and/or taking up a position at an academic research institution, or you could seek a high-level position in the public or private sector. Either one of our three Master's degree options will immerse you in stimulating and topical subject matter, while also giving you a thorough understanding of advanced research methodologies and techniques. In compiling your dissertation you will apply these skills to a topic of your choice, thereby affording you the opportunity to make your own unique contribution to the field of economics, international trade or agricultural economics. The members of our faculty, which includes NRF-rated researchers, all have impressive academic and research credentials, so you know you will be in good hands at the NWU/TRADE!
