MEcon International Economics (four-year integrated masters)

Course summary

How do different countries around the world trade, and what systems do they use? How much of an influence do historical events have on the development of international policies? Our course gives you a solid grounding in economics, and has a focus on international areas such as world trade, world economy, international monetary relations and the flow of trade and assets between countries. Our course is built on the core principles of economics, which are applied to your study of international trade, international finance, and the international institutions supporting these systems. You receive a thorough training in economics and mathematics up to post-graduate level, as well as training in quantitative research methods. You study the mathematical and statistical analysis of economic problems, and how the global economy functions, choosing from a range of topics on international economics including:

  • Models of international trade and the world trading system
  • Foreign exchange markets
  • The history of European overseas trading
  • International financial organisations
  • The impact of business decisions on products, prices, and social welfare
Much of our world-class research is related to policy, and we have particular strengths in the areas of, game theory and strategic interactions, theoretical and applied econometrics and labour economics. The quality of our work is reflected in our stream of publications in high-profile academic journals, including American Economic Review, Econometrica, and Review of Economic Studies.
