This programme provides a deepening education in the field of regional and international economics.
The programme, Urban, Regional and International Economics aims to build students’ core competencies to work with urban, regional and international issues. This focus is highly relevant to both developed and developing countries. Students gain the skills to analyse economic data and draw inferences. The theoretical knowledge combined with these practical tools give students a competitive advantage in their future career paths.
You can choose to spend you third semester studying abroad at one of JIBS’s partner universities, further adding to the international dimension of your education and knowledge.
The education prepares students for positions demanding specialised analytical skills in economics, especially those related to international economics. Such positions may be found in both the public and private sectors, for example, in dealing with the impact of globalization and structural change. This comprises elements such as mobility, knowledge supply, innovation and job creation. The students will thus be well prepared for positions requiring practical and scientific knowledge and the use of this knowledge in new models and methods.
The applicant must hold the minimum of a Bachelor’s degree (i.e the equivalent of 180 credits at an accredited university) with at least 60 credits in economics, or equivalent. Furthermore, a minimum of 15 credits in statistics/econometrics is required.
