Program objectives The unprecedented breadth of expansion of the global economy and the increasingly pivotal role of intergovernmental economic relations warranted the creation of the Master in International Economic Policy (IEP). The program focuses on the issues such as currency wars, optimal trade levels, labour standards, transfer of technologies, ﬁnancing development and the like. It is intended for students who wish to specialise in questions related to applied economics at the international and regional (including Europe) levels. Special attention are paid to the economies of emerging and developing countries. IEP Master students develop an extremely solid foundation in international economics through a wellbalanced curriculum. For students with a prior specialised course of study in economics, the IEP curriculum gives them a policy-oriented perspective and ﬂesh out the global economic context. Although there is no mathematics admissions prerequisite, candidates for the IEP Master are expected to have completed successfully at least introductory courses in microeconomics and macroeconomics at the undergraduate level. Main orientations and speciﬁc features The core curriculum is as focused on economic aspects (economic integration, international trade), ﬁnance (international ﬁnance, European monetary policy, ﬁrms in a global economy) as on policy (economics and competition policy, trade policies, intellectual property rights, labour standards, etc.) in the ﬁeld of international trade and investment. The economic dimension is underscored by the offering of two praxis oriented courses that help differentiate the economist from other social science specialists: game theory in the international arena and econometrics for decision makers. These courses, along with courses on international trade and international ﬁnance, constitute the backbone of the program. In addition to the core courses, students choose two concentrations. The PSIA concentrations are the full embodiment of the diversity of PSIA course offerings. Career opportunities Graduates of the program may envisage careers in both the private sector (consulting ﬁrms, think tanks, banks, ﬁrms) and the public sector (international organisations, national public administrations, development agencies).
