The world needs policy makers and business leaders who are skilled at working in an international environment. If you are interested in a future career working closely to the decision-making, and directly influencing your company or organization, then International Economics is the right programme for you.

The programme aims to develop your ability to understand and analyse various types of socio-economic problems and the dynamics of the global economy. You will learn to use economic theory to analyse and evaluate economic problems and processes and understand the underlying factors. The ability to analyse problems in a systematic manner is fundamental to modern economics and permeates the entire programme.

Together, the combination of economics, statistics and business forms a good and broad foundation for future career choices and gives you an competitive edge when applying for jobs.
