This programme distinguishes itself from many other master-level economics programmes by focusing on advanced issues in trade at various spatial levels - international, inter-regional, and local.
This comprehensive treatment of trade is relevant to both developed and developing countries and provides you with knowledge and skills that are attractive to both government and industry. At the same time, this programme provides a solid background in advanced microeconomic theory along with sophisticated mathematical and empirical methodologies suitable for higher-level research in economics. The second year off ers education in advanced issues of macroeconomics along with various elective-course opportunities at JIBS or abroad.
The programme allows you to earn, after one year, a 60-credit master degree relevant to the area of study. It also provides you with the option to continue your master studies for a second year, leading to a 120-credit master degree. The benefits of continuing with the second year of studies are that you are given an opportunity to study abroad at one of our 200 partner universities in the fi rst semester of the second year, and you receive an education that makes you better prepared to take on cutting-edge research and doctoral studies in a particular subject area. As an alternative to studying abroad for one semester in the second year, you may work in business- or government-related projects that will integrate your academic knowledge with real life experience. We off er different formats for this integration, such as Business Accelerator Projects and internships.
