The master's programme in International Economics at University of Göttingen concentrates on the acquisition of specialised knowledge of international markets and the global interconnections of national economies. High value is set on research-based teaching and demanding proficiency in analytical methods. Master's students have the opportunity of studying one semester at one of our partner universities for example in Europe, Russia, the U.S., Latin America, Africa, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea or China. Additional language courses will prepare students for this study-abroad programme.
Areas of study and research focus in Göttingen:
The master's degree programme in international economics provides students with greater in-depth subject-related and methodological knowledge to enable them to analyse the increasingly international intermeshing of economies and thus reproduce and evaluate its impacts on domestic or foreign economic measurands. This focus means a comprehensive, thematically matched series of courses in the field of international economic relations within the master's degree programme. Whether concerned with European economic and monetary policy, micro and macro issues in development economics, multinational companies and organisations, international trade or experimental economic research, the large range of modules offered creates a solid methodological and factual basis to enable candidates to soundly analyse the current opportunities and risks of globalisation. Equipped with several professorships and an interdisciplinary research centre, the University of Göttingen, moreover, offers the largest area of focus on the areas of economic development research.
Graduates of the master's degree programme in international economics are equipped with a high level of methodological and factual knowledge coupled with their acquired language skills and intercultural skills. This opens up outstanding career perspectives, particularly at international and European organisations (for example IWF, World Bank, OECD, WTO, European Central Bank, EU Commission), at research institutes, institutions for development cooperation and in the private sector, particularly at associations, at management consultancies, in the financial sector or at internationally aligned companies.
At the same time, a master's degree builds an excellent foundation for starting a doctoral degree programme at a domestic or foreign university.
