Master in International Economic Policy
The Master in International Economic Policy is led in collaboration with the Department of Economics of Sciences Po.
The unprecedented breadth of expansion of the global economy and the increasingly pivotal role of intergovernmental economic relations warranted the creation of the Master in International Economic Policy. The programme focuses on the issues that challenge the economic diplomat or international policy-maker, the business and financial sector, the specialised journalist alike or indeed society at large: currency wars, optimal trade levels, labour standards, transfer of technologies, financing development… The programme is intended for students who wish to specialise in such questions related to applied economics at the international and regional - including Europe - levels and that structure market economies. Special attention will be paid to the economies of emerging and developing countries.
The Master in International Economic Policy gives students an extremely solid foundation in international economics through a well-balanced curriculum. For students with a prior specialised course of study in economics, the IEP curriculum will give them a policy-oriented perspective and flesh out the global economic context.
Please note that although there is no mathematics admissions prerequisite, candidates for the IEP Master are expected to have completed successfully at least introductory courses in microeconomics and macroeconomics at the undergraduate level. Admitted candidates are responsible for refreshing their knowledge of economic reasoning by enrolling in an introductory module before the first semester as an e-course through the PSIA website. This introductory module will constitute the baseline for the programme's core curriculum and will be available to all program faculty.
Thierry Mayer is the Scientific Advisor of the PSIA Master in International Economic Policy. He is also currently professor of economics at Sciences-Po. He also is a scientific advisor in CEPII, and a research fellow in the International Trade / Regional Economics program at CEPR. His research is primarily focused on economic geography, trade theory and empirics as well as on foreign direct investment determinants. His recent publications include research on the impact of globalization on armed conflicts, as well as papers looking at the diffusion of cultural patterns across space. He also published theoretical and empirical analysis of locations choices by multinational firms, studying in particular the extent and determinants of agglomeration patterns. His most frequently cited research includes empirical studies on the level and causes of market fragmentation in the European Union.
The core curriculum is as focused on economic aspects (economic integration, international trade), finance (international finance, European monetary policy, firms in a global economy) as on policy (economics and competition policy, trade policies, intellectual property rights, labour standards,…) in the field of international trade and investment.
The economic dimension is underscored by the offering of two praxis oriented courses that help differentiate the economist from other social science specialists – Game theory in the International Arena and Econometrics for Decision Makers. These courses, along with courses on international trade and international finance - all mandatory - constitute the backbone of the programme.
Graduates of the programme may envisage careers in both the private sector (consulting firms, think tanks, banks, firms) and the public sector (international organisations, national public administrations, development agencies).
