Study economic development and globalization in Groningen and learn about the societal and economic implications of international trade, finance, and sustainable development.
We are confronted with major challenges, such as rising inequality, populism, the erosion of democracy, tackling climate change and promoting fairer, and more inclusive growth. How can you make a real impact to address these challenges? In this MSc programme, we teach you about the necessary tools and economic theories to make an impact. You also develop an analytical mindset to work on societally relevant issues. Our graduates move on to influential jobs at (international) companies, government, or international organizations. In the MSc Economic Development and Globalization (MSc EDG), you are taught societally relevant topics and how they are related to the world of economics, and we help you develop valuable skills in international trade, international finance and banking, policy analysis, and more. Also, you learn to analyze economic data, assess policy options, make economic development strategies, and provide recommendations to policymakers. We are proud of the recent very positive evaluation by the EQUIS peer review team about the outstanding quality of the ED&G students and management of the programme.
