Advantages of the Double Degree Programme

The combination of the Master's programme in International Economics at the University of Göttingen and Master's programme in Economic Development and Globalization offers many advantages:

  • a course of study held completely in English for participants from the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen
  • access to research-oriented modules that are not offered at the home university
  • a new and challenging field of study and research,
  • the chance to establish ties to an international network of fellow students,
  • the development of social and intercultural competencies in an international environment,
  • the expansion of professional career possibilities,
  • an integrated structure of study with a tailored curriculum and a Master's thesis supervised by teachers from both universities,
  • two Master's degrees in four semesters,
  • becoming intensively familiar with the culture and way of life of the host country through one year of study abroad.
