Master of Arts in Global Economic Relations

The Department of Economics is glad to announce the launching of a new MA program starting from the academic year of 2016-17. Interested students now can opt for a one-year MA in Global Economic Relations program jointly run with the International Relations Department.

This joint program integrates training in international relations with economics. It provides students with the knowledge and analytical skills to prepare and evaluate economic policies and strategic decision-making in a global setting. This program is fee-based only.

This innovative and interdisciplinary program integrates training in international relations and economics. The program focuses on deepening theoretical understanding and enhancing students’ skills and knowledge in data analysis, global politics and global economic affairs.

The program is designed to provide young professionals and practitioners with an ‘upgrade of skills’ with a strong focus on theoretical application and data analysis.

The one-year MA program in Global Economic Relations builds on the strong tradition of international relations scholarships and adds the tools and the approach of economics to enable students to carry out and understand more in-depth analysis in their fields. In addition the program provides the students with context, methodological background and a solid theoretical understanding of global issues, challenges and problems.
