    What makes the Master's programme in International Economics and Business in Groningen so unique is the combination of topics in the field of international business and international economics, and the attention paid to the links between both fields. MSc IE&B students are trained to become broadly oriented economists with a strong international profile and a deep analytical understanding of the main current trends in the global world of international (economic) policy and business organizations.

    One of the exceptional elements in this double degree programme is that you take a Research Master course as part of your curriculum. That means that besides specialising in applied international and development economics with a broad orientation into other fields of international economics and business, you also develop specific research skills. The freedom to select and combine different specialisation areas ± according to your interests and career plans ± makes this a diverse and challenging double degree programme.
