With the advances in information and transportation technologies over the last several decades, goods and services are traveling across borders faster and more efficiently than ever before. It has become increasingly difficult to anticipate the changes to markets caused by this activity. That is why the highly developed analytical skills of those with a Master in International Economics are needed in government and industry.

What is a Master in International Economics? It is an advanced degree that enhances the understanding of economic activity specifically related to international trade. It further develops the theoretical understanding of micro and macroeconomics to find solutions to problems associated with the movement of goods across geographic and political borders. Topics of study include trade policy, taxation and currency exchange rates. Some programs also provide coursework related to economic development and the impact trade has on emerging economies.

Graduates are equipped with the analytical skills and abilities to evaluate market conditions and make policy recommendations. These students have more than just advanced critical thinking abilities. They are also armed with the theoretical and historic knowledge of international trade issues. They are able to provide comprehensive analysis of problems. Students learn to use software tools to gather and evaluate sets of data. Many programs also improve communication skills through advanced writing and presentation projects.

The cost of a Master in International Economics varies. Students should contact the admission department of their chosen institution for detailed information regarding fees and tuition.

Graduates often find employment in government or commercial sectors. Research positions and analyst jobs are common. International companies value the skills and abilities of these graduates, and it is possible to find work abroad. Governments need these students to evaluate the effects of tariffs, quotas and trade agreements. Many of these programs prepare students to seek higher levels of education, and some may eventually find work as professors in college universities.

The Master in European Economic Governance (MEEG) aims to train full-fledged economists and experts in the field of European regulation and policy. Technical and analytical competencies acquired through the program are intended to form professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the European regulatory framework, who are adept at managing relations between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. [+]

The Master in European Economic Governance (MEEG) aims to train full-fledged economists and experts in the field of European regulation and policy. Technical and analytical competencies acquired through the program are intended to form professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the European regulatory framework, who are adept at managing relations between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. Almost all big and medium-sized firms operating within EMU member states entertain stable and continuous interactions with key European institutions. These interactions are often hindered by insufficient knowledge of the regulatory framework on the side of firms. On the flipside, European institutions often fail to factor in technical and country-specific instruments, causing them to inadequately assess the impact of their regulatory framework on the private sector. MEEG aims at training professionals who can see the complete picture and act as a vital link between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. After one year, MEEG students will earn an international master's degree (Master di II livello) in Economics. The master’s program is divided into two terms. The first term focuses on providing essential analytical and macroeconomic tools, as well as an overview of the historical development and legal evolution of the EU and EMU. In the second term, courses concentrate on the internal market of the EU and related key regulatory issues, such as the regulation of banking and capital markets, corporate governance, consumer protection, energy, and the environment. In order to get the most out of these courses, students are expected to already... [-]
