The ERASMUS MUNDUS M.Sc. Economics of Globalisation and European Integration is a specialised academic master’s programme. The programme is targeted at European and third country economists with career aspirations in universities, government and international organisations, and in research departments of banks and industrial or commercial corporations. It aims to develop competence in the core subjects of the programme. Students will benefit from an increased awareness of the place of the EU in the world economy and from an in-depth understanding of the importance of globalisation and international trade.

Your future

Since students attend courses in three different countries and the diplomas are jointly awarded by the nine partners of the consortium, graduates of the programme have considerable international experience. They will be able to do research-oriented work in an international environment, and do so in a professional and independent way. Some will follow an academic career and do research at a university. Others will apply their knowledge in practice when preparing and implementing economic policy decisions and by analysing their effects on the national, European and international economy.


Students must choose one subject from the 'advanced subjects' optional courses and one subject from the 'skills' optional courses. They may, however, choose more than one optional course from each list.

The programme is open to students who have earned 240 ECTS credits in an economics or applied economics university study programme or have a bachelor degree in these areas that is considered by the Joint Studies Board to be equivalent. Applicants who are enrolled in the final year of their academic programme should submit an official letter in English from their university confirming that they are expected to finalise their course at the end of the current academic year, and submit up-to-date authenticated transcripts with the results of the previous years. The proficiency in English of the students of the participating universities is checked by the local academic co-ordinators. Students from other universities should submit proof of an internet-based TOEFL level of minimum 90 (or its equivalent in another TOEFL score system), or a IELTS grade of at least 6.5, or should submit proof of having studied at least one academic year in an English-language programme. The selection procedure of all students (with and without an EM scholarship) is a common one. After having passed the eligibility check (see above) the candidates are first ranked according to their study results (GPA and/or class of degree). The weights used to differentiate those applicants who passed the eligibility tests, are the following: 30% for the type of diploma, 30% for the GPA average, 20% for fluency in English and 20% for the reputation of the home university based on the Shanghai ranking. This ‘reputation’ criterion is applied in conjunction with the requirement to strive for regional balance in the student population. The global intake of new students (with and without a scholarship) is limited to 45.
