This double degree (with Corvinus University Budapest) combines international business and international economics topics, with a special focus on issues of economic transformation and integration.
For a career in international management or public policy you have to understand the trends in the world economy, including the European Community and the CEE region. The degree programme is offered jointly by the University of Groningen, the Netherlands and Corvinus University in Budapest, Hungary.
Topics of the programme range from international trade and investment to the consequences of globalisation for strategic decision-making, in particular trade and capital flows in relation to multinational enterprises, and the socio-economic and institutional differences between countries, with a special focus on the CEE-region.
You 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 organisations, ranging from the fields of international business and economics to international politics and international law.
The core content of the programme reflects the increasing globalisation and continuous evolution of international economics and business management.
