Courses & curriculum 2017 - 2018
The programme is structured around two semesters. During the first semester, you will:
- take a number of core courses that cover the general theoretical and empirical aspects related to emerging markets
- conduct a major policy project on a topic of your choice
- develop professional skills as part of the core courses and in specialised skills trainings
- take a course on a language from an emerging economy
In the second semester, you will choose more targeted elective courses and write your thesis. The thesis, as well as the project your individual papers, will give you the opportunity to develop more specific, region-based expertise.
Your learning will be assessed using a variety of methods, including presentations, exams, projects, group and individual papers, case analyses, policy briefs and participation in discussions.
Throughout the programme, you will participate in field trips, guest lectures and workshops, which help in community building with your fellow students and in the development of your professional network. Some of the events will be held together with students from the bachelor’s specialisation in Emerging Markets that’s already offered at SBE.
