Master in International Economics (MIE)

The Master´s Degree in International Economics at the Autonomous University of Madrid (MIE-UAM) offers a modern and quality training aimed to prepare students to work in the field of international economic analysis. The main objective is to train professionals who may develop their careers in national and international economic organizations, departments of economic analysis, consulting firms and economic research centers. We place special emphasis on the development of quantitative skills and on covering with rigor the main areas of international economics. Teaching is in English. In addition, the Master gives access to the UAM´s Doctoral Programme in Economics and Business.

The MIE-UAM consists of 60 ECTS credits and is taught during three terms. Teaching takes place in the morning during the first two terms and in the afternoons during the third term. In this third term students also write a master thesis (6 ECTS) and choose between doing internships in leading private and public institutions (see details below) or enrolling in the course Introduction to Research Techniques (6 ECTS each option). For more information, see the following document in  Spanish or English and the documents available on this site.  


The Program is managed by the Department of Economic Analysis: Economic Theory and Economic History at the UAM, where classes are held.
