The MA program in Global Finance, Trade and Economic Integration (GFTEI) provides students with a multidisciplinary, policy-focused examination of the global economy. Courses focus on the complex changes underway in the global economy, including the emerging patterns of financial, trade and human capital flows and their effect on national economies, the effect of globalization on state capacity, policy autonomy and national economic conditions, the relationship between economic, political and social outcomes, corporate governance and competition and the interaction of interest groups, states and multilateral agreements and organizations.
The GFTEI degree is intended for students who want to pursue careers in international policy analysis for public sector agencies, such as the Department of Commerce and the International Trade Administration; analyst positions in multilateral institutions and organizations, such as the World Bank, the United Nations and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development; research and analyst positions within non-governmental organizations, such as Oxfam and Action Aid; and in the private sector as economic policy consultants, country risk or international project analysts, or international project managers.
