The MSc (International Political Economy) programme has been designed to ensure that students gain a sound understanding of:
- Theoretical and methodological issues in International Political Economy (IPE)
- Basics of economic analysis, with an emphasis on macroeconomics
- Trade, finance, economic and financial crises, and production networks
- Key political trends and developments that may affect the national or world economy and vice versa
Students are required to take two core courses. In addition, Masters students completing a dissertation must take five extra courses (three primary and two primary/electives), while those in the non-dissertation stream must take seven courses (five primary and two primary/electives).
Please note that the MSc (International Political Economy) at RSIS is not a programme in international economics. Although economic concepts are given serious consideration, the focus is mainly on political determinants and their impact on economic outcomes.
