Master in International Economic Policy
The Master in International Economic Policy is delivered in collaboration with the Department of Economics of Sciences Po.
This unique program focuses on the issues that challenge the economic diplomat or international policy-maker, the business and financial sectors, the specialised journalist or indeed society at large: currency wars, optimal trade levels, labour standards, transfer of technologies, financing development, etc. The program is intended for students who wish to specialise in questions related to applied economics at the international and regional - including European - levels, and that structure market economies. Special attention is paid to the economies of emerging and developing countries.
The Master in International Economic Policy at PSIA 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 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 this Master are expected to have completed successfully at least introductory courses in microeconomics and macroeconomics at the undergraduate level.
MAIN ORIENTATIONS AND SPECIFIC FEATURES
The core curriculum is as focused on economic theory and analysis (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, etc.) in the field of international trade and investment.
The economic dimension is underscored by the offering of praxis-oriented courses that help differentiate the economist from other social science specialists.
Graduates of the program may envision careers in both the private sector (consulting firms, think tanks, banks, corporate sector) and the public sector (international organisations, national public administrations, development agencies).
