Campus Full time September 2017 United Kingdom London

This innovative course offers both MSc and MA streams. It has been designed to develop your ability to apply economic analysis to policy issues and business problems, which are often ambiguous and multi-faceted. [+]

Top Master Degrees in International Economics in Europe 2017. This innovative course offers both MSc and MA streams. It has been designed to develop your ability to apply economic analysis to policy issues and business problems, which are often ambiguous and multi-faceted. Although there is a strong theoretical core, the course focus of the course is very much on the practical application of economic techniques to problems, and on developing the ability to communicate the insights that economic analysis can provide. The course has been created in conjunction with the Government Economic Service (GES) – a major employer of economics graduates in the UK. The University of Westminster is the only English university to have secured GES recommended status for a postgraduate course in economics. The course aims to provide you with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the latest developments in economics, with a focus on practical skills and development of the skills needed by a working economist. It is specifically aimed at those with a genuine interest in the application of economics to real-world situations. As well as enhancing your ability to apply relevant economic principles in the support of policy and strategy development, the course aims to develop your ability to communicate complex issues to wide audiences, your awareness of significant sources of economic and financial data, the problems faced when carrying out policy evaluation and your capability for self-awareness and group working. Course content You will gain an understanding of the key concepts in economics that underpin public sector policy and business decision making. This includes the various scenarios where we explore opportunity cost, equilibrium and disequilibrium, strategic interaction, market failure and the related concept of externalities. You'll develop your analytical skills by applying these concepts to current challenges that face the profession, at both macro and micro levels, and in both private and public sectors. This will provide you with the latest insights drawn from both the academic and practitioner arenas. Around a common core of modules covering key theoretical and practical elements, the MSc stream offers the possibility of pursuing a course of study in economics with a greater quantitative focus, while the MA stream has a stronger international emphasis. Students on this course benefit from free access to part of the material on the course reading list and an online subscription to Financial Times. In addition, you will get exposure to a global network of professional economists through a free student membership to the Society of Business Economists. Core modules Economic Evaluation Project This module provides you with the framework within which to develop your full project (dissertation) from the proposal submitted as part of the Research Methods module. The majority of projects undertaken by MSc students would be expected to involve an empirical component and appropriate quantitative analysis. Projects undertaken by MA students are likely to be of a more applied nature, possibly issue or problem based. Macroeconomic Analysis and Policy This module reviews the historical evolution of macroeconomic policy and, through a review of the theoretical and empirical literature, develops the analytical framework of macroeconomics underpinning contemporary macroeconomic policy. Microeconomic Analysis and Policy You will review theoretical and empirical microeconomic approaches in order to shed light on business decision making and microeconomic policy in mixed economies. Research Methods This module aims to enhance your knowledge and competence of the research process, and the application of research methods in the area of applied economics. Strategy and Appraisal in Economics This module applies the theoretical tools, concepts and methodology of economics to private and public sector scenarios, with an emphasis on communicating and appraising policy and strategy options. International Economics This module offers a critical, theoretically informed, issue-based approach to the study of international trade and investment, finance, economic institutions, globalisation and economic integration. Managing Data The ability to access, manipulate and interpret data from a range of sources, both primary and secondary, is an essential skill for economists and business professionals. This module offers a practical introduction to relevant data sources and to the tools necessary to critically explore these sources. Option modules Development Economics and Policy By exploring the concepts and theories that have been developed and applied by economists to the study of the problems of developing countries, this module explores the implications for the framing of development policy. Global Financial Markets This module provides you with an in-depth understanding of the structure and operation of foreign exchange markets, financial instruments used in global markets and the operation of financial institutions such as banks and insurance companies expanding across a number of financial markets. Students on the MA stream may take another Westminster Business School postgraduate module, with the permission of the Course Leader. Course-specific entry requirements You should normally hold a first degree from a recognised institution (minimum Lower Second Class), or international equivalent. If your first degree is in Economics or a cognate discipline such as Business, Geography, Development Studies or Mathematics, a minimum Lower Second Class (or international equivalent) is acceptable. If you have a more general first degree you would normally require an Upper Second Class (or international equivalent). The University operates a system of awarding credit for accredited prior learning either through formal study (APL) or experience (APEL).

In order to get the most out of these courses, students are expected to already possess basic analytical tools, and two preliminary courses will be offered to those who lack prior training in the field of economics. All candidates will be required to attend a course on the management of data processing programs (Math-Lab), in addition to a course on application sources and techniques for European Funds. Aim The MEEG aims at training full-fledged economists and experts in the field of European regulation and policy. Technical and analytical competencies acquired through the program are intended to form professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the European regulatory framework, who are adept at managing relations between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. Almost all big and medium-sized firms operating within EMU member states entertain stable and continuous interactions with key European institutions. These interactions are often hindered by insufficient knowledge of the regulatory framework on the side of firms. On the flipside, European institutions often fail to factor in technical and country-specific instruments, causing them to inadequately assess the impact of their regulatory framework on the private sector. The MEEG aims at training professionals who can see the complete picture, and act as a vital link between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. Program The MEEG is a second level master's degree (Master di II livello). It is conducted in English, with a completion requirement of 60 credits. All applicants must possess a four or five-year undergraduate degree (or equivalent diploma), and will be selected based on their CV, and, in certain cases, an interview. The MEEG program includes two preliminary courses (for candidates who require basic technical tools), twelve main courses, two instrumental courses (Math-Lab and Application for European Funds), and three optional courses. Each of the preliminary courses lasts 12 hours and grants no credit. Each of the main and instrumental courses lasts 20 hours (including possible course-specific seminars) and grants 3 credits; 3 credits are provided by each of the optional courses (see below). A master's thesis provides 6 credits, and additional credits derive from activities in common with other master's programs, or self-directed activities approved by the teaching board. The MEEG intends to assist students with solid academic track records in finding internship opportunities at economic and financial institutions, both national and European. Instruction is divided into a preparatory phase, if necessary, and two full academic terms. Students who need to acquire basic technical tools for advancing through the program must take two preliminary courses in September, neither of which provide credits toward graduation. The first academic term spans October-December, during which students must complete between 7-8 courses (21-24 credits). The second term spans March-May, and consists of the remaining 7-8 courses (21-24credits), along with additional seminars as required. For all courses, attendance is compulsory. Lectures are usually held three days per week. A fourth day is reserved for general conferences and seminars, as well as internal course-specific events. A fifth day is dedicated to tutoring and discussion sessions, as well as individual study. The period from June to September is devoted to preparing the master's thesis and/or completing a possible internship. The program's structure allows for some flexibility in order to accommodate individual interests. Motivated candidates may submit proposals for self-directed study to the teaching board, with the understanding that refusal is a possibility. To earn the master's degree, candidates must pass a written exam at the end of each completed course write, and present a thesis to the teaching board, and satisfy the requirement for self-directed study. Program MEEG comprises the following courses: (i) two preliminary courses (to be taken in September) dealing with mathematical and statistical applications of economic theory and policy; (ii) two main courses on European macroeconomic theory and policy; (iii) six main courses on European regulation; (iv) one main course on European and comparative law; (v) one main course on European economic history; (vi) one main course on European economic institutions; (vii) one main course on European political institutions; (viii) two instrumental courses; (ix) two elective courses or group of courses; (x) seminars. In general (see below for exceptions), a completed program of study will include the twelve main courses, two instrumental courses, two elective courses, and additional seminars. Exceptions Candidates who do not have sufficient quantitative skill at the time of enrollment will be required to complete two additional preliminary courses. Candidates who possess an undergraduate degree lacking in economic training can substitute the two preliminary courses under (i) with two basic courses in Maths and Statistics offered by LUISS University. Additionally, they will be requested to replace the three optional courses under (ix) with three basic courses on microeconomics, macroeconomics and economic policy, offered by other degree programs at LUISS University. To supplement the above-mentioned courses, the master's program will include: (i) seminars held by key European representatives; (ii) professional training seminars, possibly in common with other master's programs; and (iii) seminars in which candidates will present their theses. Near the end of the instruction period, the MEEG will assist in the process of finding internship opportunities. These may be found at economic and financial institutions (both national and European), as well as at private firms. Curriculum SEP Senior Researchers, SEP Senior Fellows, and SEP Friends constitute the core of the MEEG's academic staff. This group cooperates with representatives from EU political and juridical institutions, notably, key personages already participating in other SEP and LUISS School of Government (SoG) activities. The MEEG provides candidates with flexibility in their academic endeavors, allowing them to tailor their path of study to their professional backgrounds, interests, and career preferences. The list of courses below shows the variety of options available, whether they be courses belonging to other master's programs in SEP and SoG, or those belonging to other first and second degree master's programs at LUISS University. Teaching staff will guide and approve each study plan. All candidates will have access to a dedicated tutor. Preliminary Courses 1. Introduction to Quantitative Economic Methods 2. Introduction to Advanced Economics First Term 1. European Economic Governance 2. The European Economy Since 1945 3. European Law 4. European Macroeconomics: Issues in Advanced Policies 5.

Instrumental Course: Access to European Funds for Investment, R&D, and Cohesion Electives Candidates are requested to choose two more courses among those designed for the MEEG program, those provided by other degree programs at SEP, and those available through the SoG. In the academic year 2015-2016, one course is available as an elective directly through the MEEG program: 1. The European Welfare System (Term 2) A list of other available electives will be provided to candidates prior to the beginning of each term. Before each term, students will receive a file for each of the basic courses provided, with the curriculum, relevant references, and study material. Candidates are encouraged to set up their thesis as a research paper fit for publication. Their progress will be supervised by a member of the teaching staff or a senior researcher chosen by the teaching staff. Thanks to the structure outlined above, the MEEG program provides high-level training to assist candidates in reaching their professional goals. KEY ELEMENTS OF MEEG What we trust in and work for everyday EUROPE AS A KEY-FIELD OF INTEREST Companies and institutions operating in the internal market gain competitiveness by adopting a European perspective SKILLS FOR NEW PROFESSIONALS Full-fledged economists who link national institutions or companies with European institutions INTERNATIONAL CONNECTIONS SEP is part of a network of research and policy centres LUISS'S ADDED VALUE Over 200 companies and institutions collaborate with LUISS and offer its graduates employment opportunities MEEG’S GOALS What the MEEG will do DEVELOP PROFESSIONALS FOR EUROPEAN INSTITUTIONS AND COMPANIES MATCH THE CORPORATE ACTIVITY WITH THE EUROPEAN INSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK GIVE YOUNG PEOPLE THE POTENTIAL TO WORK IN A EUROPEAN CONTEXT DEEPEN UNDERSTANDING OF EU INSTITUTIONS AND ITS ACTIVITIES PARTICIPANTS' PROFILE The MEEG program seeks to attract candidates who are interested in European studies, who aim to become key professional gures in their elds through a better understanding of the relations between national institutions or private companies and European institutions. Admission requirements: Master’s Degree (Italian Laurea Magistrale or equivalent international Degree) English knowledge: C1, C2 Deep interest in European policies European vision and global mindset DOCUMENTS Applicants must send the following documents: Application request CV Possible additional certifications OPPORTUNITIES With advanced technical and analytical training, graduates of the MEEG program will have an advantage when seeking employment at: European institutions national institutions private or public companies, as a “link” with the European institutions lobbying firms research centers The technical and analytical competence that participants will acquire at MEEG are intended to form professionals in the field of European institutions and in the management of relations between national institutions or companies and European institutions. Private sector interaction with European institutions is often based on insu cient knowledge of regulatory framework. On the ipside, European institutions often do not adequately assess the impact of regulation on productivity, especially through the lens of technical and country- speci c instruments. The MEEG program aims at training professionals who can play these missing roles, both on the side of national institutions and companies, as well as that of European institutions. INTERNSHIP The MEEG program intends to assist its graduates' search for internship opportunities, at national and European economic and nancial institutions. The LUISS network and its connections with national and European institutions, as well as the business world, increase internship opportunities. LUISS NETWORK What distinguishes LUISS is its privileged relationship with the business world. Over 200 companies, multinationals, and public and private institutions collaborate with the university, each offering real opportunities to enter the business world. LUISS provides students with multiple opportunities to meet and learn from business professionals. Its connections with the institutional and European network enhances the career prospects of its graduates. MEEG aims at training full-fledged economists with expert knowledge in the field of European policy and regulation. It creates professionals in the management of relations between national institutions or companies and European institutions. [-]

MA East Asian Economy and Society

University of Vienna
Campus Full time October 2017 Austria Vienna

The two-year master's programme East Asian Economy and Society (EcoS) is a multidisciplinary programme dealing with contemporary societal, political and economic aspects of the East Asian region as a whole.

The two-year master's programme East Asian Economy and Society (EcoS) is a multidisciplinary programme dealing with contemporary societal, political and economic aspects of the East Asian region as a whole. It is offered at the Department of East Asian Studies of the University of Vienna in English language. For more information, see the EcoS Website. We regard East Asia as more than just the sum of countries in that region. Rather than offering "light-versions" of Chinese, Japanese or Korean Studies, we focus on current transnational and regional issues as well as on comparative approaches. Reflecting the common traditions as well as the growing interrelation between Northeast Asia (China, Japan and the two Koreas) and Southeast Asia, we expanded our regular activities in research and teaching to include the ASEAN countries. We believe that it is impossible to achieve a proper understanding of regional and country-specific issues without a solid foundation in established theories and methods of social science. Acquiring and utilising such methodology is therefore a core characteristic of our programme. However, even the best methodological skills are unlikely to produce optimal results if they are applied out of context. Historical and cultural tradition, customs, and values limit the number of actually available options and influence choices in East Asian societies just as anywhere else. It is therefore no coincidence that our programme is based at an area studies department. EcoS was first offered in the winter term 2008. The objective of the programme is to train experts in social science methods who apply their methodological skills to the East Asian region using a multidisciplinary approach. Accordingly, emphasis is put on transnational and regional issues and on comparative analyses. Students are equipped with academic research skills as well as the ability to apply the acquired knowledge in practice. Graduates have comprehensive knowledge of the economic, political and cultural characteristics of East Asian countries as well as their development. They are able to apply this knowledge to practically relevant issues. The study programme consists of five independent modules, totalling 120 ECTS. In module 1, the fundamentals of one East Asian language (Chinese, Japanese or Korean) are taught. Students who already hold a Bachelor's degree or a similar qualification in one of these languages are required to take courses in a language in which they do not hold such degree or qualification. In modules 2 and 3, students examine economic and political aspects of the East Asian regions within four core mandatory seminars on East Asia’s economic systems, economic development, political systems and international relations. In module 4, students are given a certain degree of flexibility when they study East Asian societies from a cultural-historical perspective, including history, religions and intercultural negotiation. In module 5, previously acquired skills are refreshed and applied to a research theme which leads to the MA thesis. Students conclude their studies with an MA examination in form of a defensio of their MA thesis. Course contents of courses in modules 2 and 3 as well as especially module 4 correspond with our key areas of research of our EcoS staff (http://ecos.univie.ac.at/about-us/staff/). EcoS courses are characterised by an international spirit, as more than half of our students come from various countries within Europe or overseas. Students share their knowledge attained from previous studies, creating an inspiring and creative atmosphere. Three student representatives provide counselling for students, organize tutorials and student round tables and serve as mediators between students and EcoS staff. For more information, click here.
