International double-degree programmes
The Department of Economics offers a German-and-English-language master's degree programme, Master of Arts in International Economics as well as a purely English-language programme, Master of Arts in Development Economics. These programmes include a requirement to study abroad, but can also be combined with international double-degree programmes. In the International Economics programme, there is a partnership with the Master of Science in International Business and Economics programme at Rijksuniversiteit Groningen. Students in the Master of Development Economics programme have the opportunity to acquire a second degree either from Stellenbosch University in South Africa (Master of Commerce in Economics) or from the University of Florence in Italy (Master of Economics and Development).
The Department of Business Administration offers a double degree programme with the Ghent University Faculty for Economics and Business Administration (in Belgium). Within four semesters, well-qualified students can complete both a M.Sc. degree in finance, accounting, and taxes at the University of Göttingen, as well as a parallel M.Sc. degree in business economics (with a focus on corporate finance or accounting) at Ghent University.
Our faculty has exchange programmes with universities across the globe. Under the framework of the Erasmus Programme of the European Commission, students can elect to study at over 60 universities. There are also additional exchange programmes in China, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Latin America, Russia, Ukraine, South Africa, and the United States as well as Thailand, Indonesia and the West Indies. Usually, students do not have to pay tuition fees at the partner universities and are partly additonally funded by scholarship programmes from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
