Course content

  • What are the total costs and benefits of building a new airport in Berlin?
  • Should farmers in Bangladesh receive direct financial support or just price guarantees?
  • How many cars will need a parking space in Copenhagen in 2020?
  • How can CO2 quotas be priced and distributed in a market efficient manner?
  • Which pipelines should be built in order to secure the EU's future gas supply?


These and many other problems, their increasing complexity, their positioning at the border between economics and management and their placement in international contexts have been the backbone of the steadily growing demand for International Economic Consulting services. Large multinational corporations, regional and national policy makers, international organisations (like the World Bank, the EU and the OECD) and a growing number of non-profit interest groups require sound economic analyses and feasibility studies for an impressive range of issues and industrial sectors.

The MSc in Economics and Business Administration - International Economic Consulting – which we have developed in close cooperation with major players of the industry – is organised to prepare students for various job functions within this context. The programme will provide you with up-to-date theoretical knowledge required for applied economic analyses; relevant quantitative and empirical methods suitable for sectoral studies, policy impact analyses and forecasting; the training and concepts required for the implementation of national and international project consulting and, last but not least, introduce you to an exiting international environment.
