About

The Comparative Economics and Policy programme at University College London (UCL) is centred around the economics and economic policy of emerging markets, viewed through the prism of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, but relevant to the emerging economies and societies of South and South-East Asia, the Middle East and North Africa as well as Latin America.

Overview

The Comparative Economics and Policy programme at University College London (UCL) focuses on the development experiences of the 28 nations that have emerged from the former Soviet bloc in Europe and Asia. You will analyse the impact of institutional reforms on diverse outcomes, including economic performance, socio-economic development, financial integration, democratisation, innovation and entrepreneurship, and internationalisation.

Employability

The MA opens up a range of opportunities and we expect that graduates from this programme will go on to work in think tanks, political parties, national, European and international private and public sector organisations and in media and non-governmental organisations as economic and political analysts.

Similarly, we expect others will go on to doctoral studies. Internship opportunities and excellent links with other universities in the region as well as range of leading events and research seminars complement your studies. 

With their specialist knowledge and language skills, SSEES Master's graduates can be found in business, finance, the media, international agencies, charities, diplomacy, international security organisations, the law, and academia.
