About

The Economics - International and Macroeconomic Policy MSc programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam focuses on trade, growth and coordination of fiscal and monetary policy. 

Overview

The Economics - International and Macroeconomic Policy MSc programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam builds upon foundations of advanced macroeconomics: What determines long-run growth and productivity; what is the use of fiscal and monetary policy for economic stabilization?

Specialization courses discuss, inter alia, strategies in coordination and cooperation needed to maintain and promote the integration of Europe: How are tasks divided between EU and national authorities, can the Euro area be stabilized and is further expansion desirable? Another area focuses on growth in developing nations: What role do institutional (social and political) factors play in promoting growth, how do incentives affect savings and investment of households and firms, and what is the impact of foreign aid on development?
