Program Description:

Examine the impact of globalization on European integration using the theories of international trade, capital markets, and economic development in a European context. The aim of the program is to give you a critical understanding of the links between economic integration, comparative advantage, and international competitiveness.

Travel with your class and DIS faculty on course-integrated study tours that give you first-hand insight into the larger economic landscape of Europe. First, you go to Western Denmark to visit Danish companies, and then - depending on your track - on a week-long study tour with a focus on the euro crisis or on transition economies

Benefit from Denmark as your case study, where you and your classmates will take a comparative look at how Denmark’s small, open economy differs from that of the U.S. as both countries negotiate the driving forces and consequences of globalization

Explore Copenhagen through a hands-on academic lens on field studies with your core course instructors, taking you behind the scenes on visits to local institutions such as think tanks, consulting firms, and labor unions

This program is right for you if your major is economics, finance, or international relations. You want a European perspective on how globalization, driven by economic growth, changes the market faster than national and international policies.

>> Globalization and European Economies
You will focus on the impact of globalization on European economic integration, using standard theories of international trade applied to the EU common market and monetary union. You will gain a deeper understanding of the economic aspects of European and regional trade, labor, and monetary policy.
