In the double degree with the University of Göttingen (Germany) you will obtain specialised knowledge of international markets and the global interconnections between national economies. What are the consequences of globalisation for the socioeconomic and institutional differences between countries and what roles do multinational companies play in this respect? You will learn to apply the tools of modern economic analysis to issues of development policy and to communicate effectively with researchers, policymakers and practitioners on development issues.

In Göttingen, you will benefit from the expertise of researchers regarding microeconomic aspects of development. And you will be trained in applying quantitative research methods that are specifically suitable to study these aspects in a systematic way. The Groningen component of the programme is more focused on macroeconomic and international aspects of development and links these to international business perspectives.

By following the programmes in Göttingen and Groningen, you will graduate with a strong international profile and a deep analytical understanding of global economic policy and business organisations.

Waarom aan de RUG?

  • You can earn two Master's degrees by studying in Groningen and at a top university abroad - Gottingen University in only two years. A unique combination to learn how to apply the tools of modern economic analysis to specific issues of development in a globalizing world.
  • This master focuses relatively strongly on the economic development of low-income countries and a more microeconomic perspective on inequality, poverty and growth.
  • The programme has been internationally accredited by the AACSB and EQUIS, ensuring a high-quality education, which only 1% of universities reach worldwide.
