Course content

Understanding today’s global economy requires insights from both economics and business studies. The specialisation International Economics & Business (IE&B) combines both fields of analysis, focusing on their relevance for firms that operate in an international environment. What are the consequences of developments in financial markets for a firm’s risk management and finances? How does the success of a cross border merger or acquisition depend on differences in institutions and cultures between host and parent countries? By studying the latest articles and applying modern empirical methods, you will address these and other aspects in depth, guided by professors carrying out research in these fields.

Why should you choose International Economics & Business in Nijmegen?

  • A broad perspective on issues that are relevant for globally operating firms
  • A focus on recent scientific insights and modern methods of applied research
  • An excellent reputation in the Netherlands and abroad
  • Small group teaching and close contact with professors and their research
  • Good career prospects across the world

Change perspective

Because we combine the latest economic theories with the cultural aspect of doing international business, graduates will understand that doing business requires more than an understanding of economic principles. They will be able to give their future employees a new and fresh look on the process of globalisation and how their company can manoeuvre and position themselves in multiple countries.

*This is a specialisation of the Master's in Economics.
