Do you have your eyes on the world? Would you like to work in the field of international economics and business? Do you seek the challenge of a high-level, practice-oriented education to realise your ambitions? The International Economics programme offers you a comprehensive selection of topical global economics issues. You will explore and analyse the progressive integration of international goods, labour and capital markets and the decline in the national barriers that separated them in the past. You also address the effects that increased interdependence of economies has on governments, firms, their managers and employees. In short, you are guided to the frontiers of international economics research in both theory and practice.
Is this the right choice for you?
Would you like to know how globalisation impacts firms and, very important, workers at these firms? Are you interested in learning about companies’ internationalisation strategies? Did you always wonder how globalisation and economic development are related? Do you want to acquire tools that help you in predicting exchange rates? If yes, then you should consider the Master in International Economics.

You like microeconomics, as international trade is microeconomics related to open economies
You have a decent background in mathematics and statistics
You have an analytical mindset
Your economic interests are not confined to just national markets
You like a challenging and international atmosphere in the lecture hall.
