Degree project at the Riksbank
Each year, the Riksbank offers assistant supervision for thesis projects to a limited number of master’s students in economics and statistics enrolled at Swedish universities. Students are expected to have a main supervisor at their university, and to have selected a topic for the thesis within the Riksbank’s main areas of responsibility. Students will get supervision by a staff member at one of the Riksbank departments:
- Payments Department (AFB)
- Financial Stability Department (AFS)
- Markets Department (AFM)
- Monetary Policy Department (APP)
- Research Division (FOE)
As an inspiration, read about Jacob, who wrote his degree project at the Riksbank in 2019, which led to an increased interest in the Riksbank as employer. Following his studies, he applied for a job at the bank. He now works as a data analyst with financial mathematics and programming. Read more about Jacob, his role and his development at the Riksbank here.
I gained a very good impression when I wrote my master's thesis for the Riksbank in 2019 on the division of bankruptcy and modelling of Swedish companies.
