The EGEI-programme is organized in four semesters. The first semester takes place in France or China and provides you a strong background in economic theory and quantitative methods as well as solid knowledge in international law and business. During the second semester (in Belgium), you will deepen your knowledge in the area of economics of globalisation and European Integration. Furthermore you will start working on you master dissertation. During the third semester, you will specialize in one of the four specialization tracks that are available. The location depends on your chosen specialization: International economic policy in Tartu (Estonia), Economic and financial issues in the EU in Santander (Spain), Economics and business of globalisation in Bari (Italy) or Globalisation and emerging market economies in Valparaiso (Chile). The last semester is devoted to an internship (in international organizations, NGO’s, international business corporations) and your master dissertation.
An innovative teaching approach is used, which brings together advanced academic competences with more practical knowledge and skills: e.g. lectures and seminars with EU officials, visits to EU institutions and other Brussels-based bodies. Interactive modes of instruction: Oxford-style debate, simulations, role playing games, discussion groups and pitch presentations.
