In the double degree master’s with the Corvinus University in Budapest, Hungary, you will gain important skills in international trade, international banking and finance, policy analysis, and other areas. You study themes that are relevant to society and how they connect to the field of economics. You also learn how to evaluate policy options, create strategies for economic development, analyse economic data, and advise policymakers, with a special focus on the CEE-region. In the first year, you study the MSc Economic Development and Globalization in Groningen and in your second year you study abroad at our partner university in Budapest, Hungary.

You are trained to become a well-rounded economist with a strong international profile and a deep analytical understanding of the main current trends in the global world of international (economic) policy and business organizations, ranging from the fields of international business and economics to international politics and international law. The core content of the programme reflects the increasing globalization and continuous evolution of international economics and business management.

Waarom aan de RUG?

  • This unique combination of two degrees, in Groningen and Budapest, focuses on the economic transformation and integration of CEE countries. The programme gives an analytical approach to the global economy and international policy.
  • You can earn two Master's degrees by studying in Groningen and at a top university abroad - Corvinus University in only two years. Normally, the MA in International Economy and Business at Corvinus takes two years, but via our Double Degree Master, it will take you only two years to earn both degrees.
  • The programme in Groningen takes an interdisciplinary approach, integrating economics, environmental research, policy analysis, and technological developments. This broad perspective prepares you to tackle complex, real-world problems. Explore the ethical dilemmas and consequences associated with economic development and globalization, including issues related to sustainability, social justice, and human rights. You will address global challenges and topics that are related to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and work towards solutions to make a positive change.
  • Our alumni have the opportunity to engage in high-level research activities of international organizations (such as the OECD in Paris, the Conference Board in New York, and the ILO in Geneva) and national organizations (such as the Dutch Central Bank and The Netherlands' Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis).
  • The programme in Groningen has been internationally accredited by the AACSB and EQUIS, ensuring a high-quality education, which only 1% of universities reach worldwide.
