About the Erasmus Mundus master Economics of Globalisation and European Integration

The Programme offers a scientifically well-founded training in the field of economics of globalisation, international trade and European economic integration. It provides a profound insight into the current scientific knowledge in this field and is supported by scientific research at the partner universities, both at these universities individually and in a network context. The Programme leads to an in-depth understanding in the following core fields: Advanced Microeconomics, Advanced Macroeconomics, Open Economy Macroeconomics and International Finance, Economics of Globalisation, Economics of European Integration, and International Trade: Theory and Policy. As a master degree in economics should also include a strong quantitative component, Applied Econometrics is taught as an additional core discipline.

The Programme is jointly taught and organised by a consortium of seven European universities: Universiteit Antwerpen (Belgium), Università degli Studi di Bari ‘Aldo Moro’ (Italy), Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium), Universidad de Cantabria (Spain), Université de Lille 1(France), Vysoká Škola Ekonomická v Praze (Prague University of Economics) (Czech Republic), Staffordshire University (UK), Xiamen University (P.R. China) and Universidade de Brasília (Brazil).

One thought on “Economics of Globalisation and European Integration – Erasmus Mundus Research Scholarship

  1. Brazil, Yes, of course, I agree that while expecting the inomerous necessary changes that are underway in Brazil, it is absolutely incredible to try to imagine the set of situational factors, global, social, political and economic dynamics that generate inter relational influencing the slow, gradual, but steady and solid economic growth and development polisetorial and multifactorial occurring simultaneously in the economy of Brazil in manifold expansion. It is just amazing. What a great effort and big challenges!
