MSc in Economics and Business
International EconomicsGlobalization, i.e. the increasing interconnectedness of countries’ goods and factor markets has increased substantially during the past three decades. With growing emerging economies newly entering the world markets, it seems that this trend will continue also in the upcoming decades. The Master’s specialisation in International Economics focusses on how the decline in national barriers protecting goods and factor markets impacts domestic governments, firms and their managers and employees.
Why International Economics?
- With courses related to international trade, multinationals and the macro economy students acquire the necessary analytical skills and theoretical knowledge to understand the dynamics and the functioning of rapidly changing global economic and financial markets.
- Each year, around 75 students from different nationalities enroll in the specialisation. This ensures that not only the topics discussed in the lectures are international, but also the atmosphere in the classroom.
- The programme prepares students for a wide range of positions currently offered in academic, business and government sectors and many alumni hold top positions in the private and public sector.
