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” which 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 of 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
Current research projects focus on the distributional effects of globalisation, on 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.
