Do you want an international career as an economist with specialised skills in a business function like finance, management or entrepreneurship? The MSc International Economics is ideal for you.

Today, economics is global and interconnected - a financial move in one part of the world can impact the lives of a whole web of stakeholders. A wide variety of organisations are seeking economic decision-makers who can navigate the complex variables of international business and deliver sound and ethical results. So the one-year MSc in International Economics and Business has been designed to give you a firm grasp of global economics (through core courses in empirical economics and international business ventures) plus the specialisation that suits your ambitions: International Management, International Financial Economics, International Ventures & Entrepreneurship, or Globalisation & Development. Small class size, international participants, and globally-renowned lecturers combine to make this MSc an especially intense and inspiring experience. 'I found that the MSc programme provided a good global perspective. It also provides an introduction to both economics and business. Currently I work at ING as a credit risk research analyst. Much of my work is done in international teams, so being able to work with a diverse group of people is essential.'- Keriann Boxhill, alumna
