Academic, scientific or professional interest: This Master’s Degree is focused on the economic analysis of international trade and economic integration, and also of markets and organisations. It has a mainly academic and research approach. This does not mean that graduates cannot perform specialised technical functions in their respective jobs outside the academy, such as analysts in companies and specialists in Administration, Public Bodies and Study Services. The general objective of this Master’s Degree is to train specialists in a field that includes not just economic integration processes and international trade, but also the strategic management of companies and organisations. This specialisation, along with an outstanding training in the use of quantitative methods applied to economy, allows working in the study, advice and strategy design of companies, sectors, specific markets and study services, both national and international. The Master’s Degree in Economics aims particularly at training specialists who can be able to join International Organisms, public administrations and study services, as well as medium and large companies, either dedicated to industry or services. Here are some examples: 1) International level: Directorates-General for protection of market competition, advice of the European Commission, Parliament's study offices and study services of international bodies. 2) National level: Regulatory bodies, agencies for the protection of market competition, bank study services, ministries and consulting cabinets. 3) Regional level: Organisation and management of technologic parks, networks of technologic institutes, regional agencies for promotion of innovation and departments for innovation, science or business. 4) Local level: Management of areas with priority for industrialisation, local development agencies International, national and regional organisations and bodies demand this type of professionals in order to: a) define their strategy and adapt to the challenges of an increasing internationalisation and market competition b) face a regulating environment which is increasingly sophisticated and demanding, which requires specialists specifically trained in the multidisciplinary field that this Master’s Degree suggests and covers. For international, national and regional organisations, the global market competition and the sophistication of the local regulation is translated in a need for actual specialists in international and industrial economy. These professionals can be integrated, among others, in their departments of planning, innovation, strategic management or human resources.
