Master in International economics
A PATHWAY TO A CAREER IN INTERNATIONAL ECONOMICS
The Master in International Economics is a small, selective programme focused on preparing students for jobs in international organisations, governments, NGOs and think tanks as well as the private sector. Our program is also well suited to students who want to go on and do a PhD (either at the Graduate Institute or in another university). About one sixth of our master students choose this option.
The programme combines a rigorous training in the advanced empirical and analytical tools that are required for careers in international economics with a policy orientation. It provides students with the necessary work-skills, and the institutional and historical background they will need to apply the tools to real world problems.
This applied approach – teamed with our close connection to the international organisations in Geneva (where many students do internships) and across the world – explains the remarkable success of our students over the years . Graduates have secured jobs in top-level national and international institutions (ranging from the World Bank, IMF and OECD, WTO, WIPO, ILO and other UN agencies, central banks, and economic ministries), policy institutions such the WEF, NGO and think tanks, as well as consultancies, multinationals and banks.
