Study economic development and growth in Groningen and Lund to learn about the complexity of development concerns in developing economies.
The MEDEG programme is offered by a consortium of the University of Groningen (The Netherlands), Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain) and Lund University (Sweden). You study the first year either in Groningen or Madrid. In the second year, all students move to Sweden to specialize in development and growth issues at Lund University School of Economics and Management. The programme provides you with the theoretical and quantitative tools needed to grasp the main debates in economics and other social sciences, as well as the specialized understanding of context, institutions, and historical legacies in developing economies required to deal with the full complexity of development issues.The Groningen–Lund programme provides rigorous training in economics and quantitative methods and offers a variety of electives on central topics in development. At the end of each year, you complete an independent research project, closely supervised by the faculty. On successful completion, you will obtain an MSc in Economic Development and Globalization from the University of Groningen, and a Master’s Degree in Social Science with a major in Economic Development and Growth from Lund University.
