Welcome at the Chair of International Economics

Udo Kreickemeier holds the Chair of International Economics since April 2015. Ms. Miriam Kohl, M. Sc., Mr. Dr.  Zhan Qu and Mr. Fabrice Naumann, M.Sc.. are research assistants in his team.
There is a close cooperation with Philipp Richter, assistant professor of International Economic Policy.

Information on teaching
The Chair of International Economics offers lectures and seminars covering many different aspects of economic globalization. At the undergraduate level, we offer two different lectures: “International Trade: Theory and Policy” focuses on topics related to the internationalization of goods markets, whereas “Open Economy Macroeconomics” focuses on financial markets. For graduate students, the core lecture we offer is “Advanced International Trade”, giving an in-depth overview over classical and modern theories for the explanation of international trade. In addition, there are two lectures focusing on the role of individual firms in the global economy, namely “Economics of Multinational Enterprises” and “Global Organisation of Production”. The teaching portfolio is rounded off by seminars on specific topics in International Economics at the undergraduate and graduate level, and by a lecture “Economics of Regional Integration”, designated for graduate students in the International Relations program.

Research areas
We are currently working on a large research project focusing on different aspects of the „new distributional effects of globalisation“. The distributional effects we analyse are „new“ in the sense that they can only arise in frameworks that allow for heterogeneous populations of economic agents (workers and firms). As a consequence of this assumed heterogeneity, which is of course well in line with what we observe empirically, globalisation has firm-specific and worker-specific effects that would not materialise in a more traditional model that assumes identical agents within each group. Other current research projects focus on the internationalisation of production and on the effects of international trade on the environment.

Career Options for Graduates
An academic degree in Economics can be the foundation of a great many careers in the private or public sector. Successful applicants at all levels (whether with an undergraduate, a graduate or a doctoral degree) are typically able to show evidence for in-depth knowledge of modern economic theory and modern empirical methods. The courses mentioned above are designed to help in forming such a profile.
