This study programme, which is taught in English, focuses on process structures of economic policy in the international integration of markets. The programme prepares students for challenging careers in administration and politics, as well as in national and international organisations. In addition to applied econometrics and micro and macroeconomics, the programme provides in-depth knowledge of international economic policy and globalisation.
The focus is on economic, micro and macroeconomic topics with a strong international correlation (international relations in trade and development, monetary and fiscal policy).

The aim of the programme is to provide students with analytical, economic and quantitative skills and knowledge for challenging careers in the field of economic analysis, e.g. as is required for leading positions in ministries, associations, international organisations and enterprises, but also in development co-operation.

The programme also prepares students for a career in the academic world. The programme is taught at a high academic level and uses the latest methods and concepts. The teaching concept links intensive student monitoring with autonomous academic work and regular contact with the economic practice.
