Master Economics and International Relations - Máster en Economía y Relaciones Internacionales
This programme is offered either full and part time basis
MSc Economics and International Relations provides a platform to understand international economics and politics from an interdisciplinary perspective.
The course gives you considerable flexibility to choose an area of geographical specialisation. It will allow you to develop skill highly desired by employers; an ability to understand international institutions and geopolitics, as well as the analytical skills of economics. It is taught in collaboration with staff and students from Political, Social and International Studies, which also has a strong tradition of interdisciplinary research and teaching.
This course fits into our Applied Training Programme which is designed to provide training in new and vocationally attractive skills in Economics. It is appropriate either for graduates with no economics background who wish to understand how markets work and to develop the analytical skills of an economist, or for graduates in economics who wish to develop specialist expertise without committing to full research training.
