“The International Economic Policy specialization through BGInS has given me the opportunity to take a number of courses in economics, business and Chinese while completing the program’s core courses. Going abroad at the end of the second year was great in helping better prepare myself for employment opportunities after graduation.”

International Economic Policy

This disciplinary Specialization provides a good general understanding of the economic forces invoked by government intervention and helps students gain familiarity with current best evidence on the magnitude of these forces. The program’s relatively non-technical approach will give students with diverse backgrounds the opportunity to learn about issues related to economic globalization, international and public-sector economics, and the ways in which associated challenges might be resolved for the improvement of people’s well-being. This Specialization will be of particular interest to students who aspire to work in economic policy institutions such as central banks, government finance ministries, trade policy institutions, financial regulatory agencies, macroeconomic think tanks, and international lending institutions.  Students who intend to go on to graduate school in economics will need to take extra courses beyond those contained in this Specialization; please consult the Department of Economics for further information.
