International Economics and Development
International Economics & Development offers students the opportunity to study curriculum in International Economics with a strong emphasis on the low and middle income countries of the Global South.
The programme offers a unique combination of International Economics and Development Economics, in which state-of-the-art theoretical understanding of the roots of (under)development, poverty and inequality is combined with a rigorous empirical approach, facilitated by one of the world's largest databases for developing countries. Besides international economics courses focusing on the role of international financial markets, institutions and culture, this track offers students in-depth theoretical and empirical knowledge of current issues in the development field.
The analytical attitude, strong empirical skills and broad theoretical knowledge obtained in this programme prepares you well for a career in international organizations (Worldbank, UN), national governments, development-oriented consultancy firms, NGO's, and research (PhD) positions at universities and research institutes.
The Master's in International Economics and Development is a specialisation of the Master's programme in Economics.
