Grad Program: Economics, International
International Economics concerns the fields of finance, business, economics, and policy making with an international scope. You’ll learn about economics-related subjects like taxation, market structure, and economic theory. You’ll learn about human resources, labor economics, and monetary theory. Global markets, international financial strategies, and international law will be of vital concern. You’ll learn how to make quantitative analyses and perform efficient and thorough research in a variety of economic fields. Your research and analysis skills will be applicable to both academic positions and the workplace, giving you a wide variety of career options.
Your business studies will be closely knit with international studies—you’ll learn about international questions of trade and economics, the effects of globalization, environmental regulation, and industrial policy. You’ll learn how the economics of different countries affect and are affected by each other, and how each can work to their greatest potential. The knowledge you’ll gain will be of vital importance to our increasingly global economic environment.
