Economic Development and Globalization at the University of Groningen

 

Do you want to understand the opportunities and challenges posed by globalization for the economic development of countries? Then this programme is for you.

 

Increasing international trade and finance is opening up new opportunities for the growth of firms, regions and countries. At the same time, it is posing new challenges as the benefits are not equally distributed and inequality is rising. In the one-year Master's degree in Economic Development and Globalization (MSc ED&G), you will learn the tools to grasp the complex relationships between globalization and the economic development of regions and countries.

 

You will use state-of-the-art economic theories to discover the impact of global trade and of financial globalisation on economic growth and welfare. As you develop your skills, you will learn to recognise the forces that shape geographical patterns of economic activity. You will learn to advise firms and governments on how to reap the benefits of globalisation and international value chains.

 

For those seeking to augment the one-year programme in Groningen, there are four possibilities to follow a Double Degree: with Fudan University (Shanghai), the University of Göttingen (Germany), Lund University (Sweden) and Corvinus University (Budapest).

The programme offers two profiles: 'Globalization, Growth and Development' and 'International Capital and Globalization'. You choose a specific set of electives, write your master's thesis on a topic within that theme and receive a certificate as a supplement to your degree.

 

You can also choose your own selection of electives and follow your own interests (subject to certain conditions). The programme aims to train students in economic analysis and decision-making in national and international organisations, such as multinationals, financial institutions, consultancy firms as well as government agencies and policy advisory agencies.

 

Students will acquire the very latest knowledge on topics like international trade, growth and development economics and the theory of banking and of international capital flows and apply the theories to real-world problems. After graduating, students will be able to apply this knowledge in different settings and interpret the interrelationship between the knowledge areas. Presenting, discussing and learning from current research is incorporated throughout the programme. Learn to understand and contribute to the current economic debate and link this to economic theory, by thinking and writing critically.
