Master in Economics of Globalisation and European Integration

Vrije Universiteit Brussel

PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION

The Programme offers a scientifically well-founded training in the field of economics of globalisation, international trade and European economic integration. It provides a profound insight into the current scientific knowledge in this field and is supported by scientific research at the partner universities, both at these universities individually and in a network context. The Programme leads to an in-depth understanding in the following core fields:

  • Advanced Microeconomics
  • Advanced Macroeconomics
  • Open Economy Macroeconomics
  • Economics of Globalisation
  • Economics of European Integration
  • International Trade: Theory and Policy
As a master degree in economics should also include a strong quantitative component, Applied Econometrics is taught as an additional core discipline. The Programme consists of 60 ECTS credits, the taught part of the programme consisting of 45 credits and the dissertation having a weight of 15 credits. One credit is roughly equivalent to 25 working hours (lectures, assignments and study time).
