The European Union is offering the Erasmus Mundus Scholarships for the Master Economics of Globalisation and European Integration (EGEI) in the 2021/22 academic session.
he Master EGEI programme meets an increasing demand for graduates who have the skills to competently analyse issues of globalisation and economic integration, make relevant policy or strategic recommendations in the public and private sector.
An innovative approach which brings together advanced academic competences with more practical knowledge and skills. Lectures and seminars with EU officials, visits to EU institutions and other Brussels-based bodies. Interactive modes of instruction: Oxford-style debate, simulations, role-playing games, discussion groups and “pitch” presentations.
Upon successful completion of the programme, students earn the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Economics of Globalisation and European Integration. Students must spend at least two terms in two different EU countries different from their country of residence. The diplomas are awarded jointly by a consortium of seven universities and a leading global think tank. Associate partners from academia, international organisations and private sector contribute to the programme with specific skills and with highly valuable opportunities for internships.
