Program description

Study international economics in the Netherlands

Do you aim to work in an international economic and business environment? Are your standards as high as your ambitions? Prepare yourself to tackle a wide range of topical international economic issues in the international economics program.

This challenging, practice-oriented program consists of core courses, electives, seminars and a master thesis. During your master, you will explore and analyze the progressive integration of goods, labour and capital markets and the decline of national barriers.

You will also achieve a deep understanding of the economic forces underlying the increased interdependence of nations as you can choose electives covering topics like:

  • empirical international trade
  • the so–called new trade theories
  • the instruments of trade policies
  • international financial markets

Admission requirements

Your degree has to be equivalent to the BSc in Economics and Business Economics offered by Erasmus School of Economics. Your Bachelor's degree in economics, accounting, finance or business (administration) needs to be equivalent in both level and content.

Program content

You will explore and analyse the progressive integration of goods, labour and capital markets and the decline of national barriers. You will also achieve a deep understanding of the economic forces underlying the increased interdependence of nations as you can choose electives covering topics like:

  • Empirical international trade
  • The so–called new trade theories
  • The instruments of trade policies
  • International financial markets

Seminars are an important component of the programme. For these intensive courses, active participation and commitment are a must. You will be expected to present excerpts of literature or case studies, ask questions, express doubts and share your ideas in class discussions.

The last block of the specialisation is devoted to the master’s thesis, which is written individually under close supervision by one of our faculty members.

Tuition fees

Master programs

  • EU: EUR 2.006
  • Non-EU: 14.500

Research master programs

  • EU: 2.006

Studying in a foreign country can be very expensive. Fortunately, the Dutch government subsidizes higher education which leads to lower tuition fees for students with a nationality from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA). In recent years, more and more students from outside the EEA have decided to study in the Netherlands, resulting in a growing demand for academic scholarships. Below you can find the few scholarships that might be applicable to you.

Erasmus Education Fund

Every academic year, the Erasmus Education Fund (EEF) supports several students with a scholarship of 3000 euro's per year. The EEF is only for excellent students who need provable financial support. Students may apply by following the application procedure for the EEF.

Erasmus School of Economics Student Waiver for excellent students from non-EEA countries

The Erasmus School of Economics has created a separate fund to support excellent students. The maximum award of the waiver consists of a tuition fee waiver for the year 2016-2017. Resulting in a tuition fee equal to the statutory fee. Current or prospective students who are awarded this waiver will therefore not themselves directly receive a sum of money.

Holland Scholarship Erasmus University

The Holland Scholarship is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and Dutch research universities and universities of applied sciences. The scholarship is meant for international students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who want to do their bachelor’s or master’s in Holland. The scholarship amounts to €5,000.
