Master in International Economic Policy
Earliest start date
This unique program focuses on the issues that challenge international policy-makers, the business and financial sectors, specialised journalists and civil society actors participating in global economic governance: currency wars, optimal trade levels, transfer of technologies, sovereign debt, climate change, 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.
The Master in International Economic Policy at Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) Paris School of International Affairs (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 a 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.
