Applications are invited for Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Scholarships at the University of Antwerp. The programme offers a scientifically well-founded training in the fields of Economics of Globalisation, International Trade, European Economic Integration.
The objective of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree EGEI is to develop competences in the core subjects of the programme for European and non-European economics students.
Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train gain experience, and volunteers abroad.
It is essentially geared to students interested in careers in research, in government and international organisations, and in the research and strategy departments of large banks and industrial and commercial corporations.
It provides a profound insight into the current scientific knowledge in these fields and is supported by scientific research at the partner universities, both individually and in a network context.
The setup of the programme is such that students are constantly operating in an international environment. Moreover, the content of the programme is eminently international (globalisation and European integration).
