Global Economics

Nation-states face rapidly shifting challenges in maintaining growth and managing distribution of resources. Analyze outcomes and proposed economic solutions, as people and governments find new and sustainable ways of distributing resources.

Program Highlights

  • Analyze government financing, allocation of funds, management of public finance, and what these mean for economic growth
  • Meet with representatives of Swedish government agencies, think tanks, and interest groups to learn about current challenges and the complexity of accommodating multiple stakeholders’ interests in the economy
  • Travel with DIS faculty on course-integrated Study Tours to visit key banks and institutions in Europe and meet with professional economists, giving you first-hand insight into the European economic landscape

Is This Program For You?

It’s a good fit if you study:

  • Economics
  • Finance
  • Government

A government’s role in the economy is always a matter of considerable debate. How does Sweden provide so many public services, and does this high level of engagement cause inefficiency or foster growth and innovation?”
