The Master's programme in International Economic Policy at University of Würzburg is an internationally oriented programme which aims at preparing students for applying rigorous theoretical and empirical economic analysis to a wide range of issues relevant for business and public policy.


Students at University of Würzburg successfully completing this programme will receive a legally accredited Master’s degree in International Economic Policy, which serves as a stepping stone for a professional career in the private or public sector or an academic career.

Key Features 

  • Each course in the programme accounts for 5 ECTS credits and is typically taught four hours per week, with approximately half of the time devoted to the discussion of exercises and problem sets. 
  • A complete course list can be found here. As depicted in Figure 1 below, students have to select four courses from the Core area (i.e. 20 ECTS credits), eight courses from the Core Elective area (i.e. 40 ECTS credits) and four courses from the Elective area (i.e. 20 ECTS credits).

Programme Structure

  • In contrast to the narrowly defined Core area and Core Elective area, the Elective area includes a broad range of courses in economics and business, as well as courses taken at partner universities and specific project seminars.  
  • While some of the Core Elective and Elective courses are taught in German, the programme requirements can be entirely met with courses taught in English. The programme is completed with a policy-oriented or research-oriented seminar (10 ECTS credits) and the Master’s thesis (30 ECTS credits).
