Interests that are a good basis for this study programme
If you are interested in globalisation and (sustainable) development, and enjoy interdisciplinary work and learning, this is the ideal degree programme for you. You should also have a high capacity for autonomy, as this degree programme involves many elective options, and therefore also requires good organisational skills.
Global Studies – Specialisation Economics and Environment
You will gain broad insights into individual areas of globalisation and development and choose a specialisation appropriate to your subject focus in business administration and/or economics, emphasising aspects of sustainability and business ethics. Your programme will also include two interdisciplinary extensions and a practical module. The focus is on networked, integrated study and thinking – seeing the bigger picture, rather than a narrow specialisation.
After completing the master’s programme there is the possibility of further study in the doctoral programme. The content will be evaluated during the admission process.
Preparation for a wide range of career paths
As a graduate in Global Studies – Specialisation Economics and Environment you will be highly employable in corporate social responsibility roles in small and medium enterprises. Typical fields of work also include NGOs, educational institutions, public administration, inter- and supranational organisations, or in research projects on globalisation and development-related topics.
For admission to the master’s programme you must have already completed a first degree in a relevant subject area. You can find more information in the Curriculum.
