The Master’s in Economic Development and Growth trains the next generation of analysts, researchers and professionals in the field of development and growth. The programme combines the expertise of three highly ranked European universities into a common platform with leading scholars in economics, economic history and demography. 

In this double degree programme, you spend the first year studying development and international economics, statistics and long run development at either Universidad Carlos III de Madrid or University of Groningen. The second year, you specialise in development and growth, related to issues such as comprehensiveness and equality, sustainability and energy, innovation and human capital, at Lund University. 

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid combines high-level economics, economic history and economic development and has a special focus on Latin America. University of Groningen is a top-class institution at international level in the field of economics, econometrics, development economics and economic history, and hosts the Groningen Growth and Development Centre, a research institute that is famous for its study on long-term economic growth and productivity analysis worldwide. Lund University is specialised in economic growth and development in the long run with focus on Asia, Africa and Latin America, besides Europe. 

A hallmark of the Master’s in Economic Development and Growth is the emphasis on the personal contact between professors and students, achieved by small classes. You will, in close supervision of a highly qualified faculty member, complete two independent research projects (theses) both at the end of year 1 and year 2 of the programme. In the process, you will be able to develop your ability to organise and express your own ideas and research in written form, while you will also have the opportunity to improve your presentational skills in workshops with other students and faculty members.
