Students choosing Option I.A spend a whole year in Berlin. The courses will provide consistent and high-level training in international macroeconomics and governance, financial and development policies, as well as growth and distribution theory, a hot topic today since the revelation that income and wealth inequalities are at their highest since the late 1920s. The programme includes the participation of professionals and external speakers. Students choosing Option I.B spend one year at Kingston University. They receive in-depth training skills in political economy and finance, and get an introduction to a wide array of theoretical approaches to macroeconomics and such problems as unemployment and financial crises. They also have the possibility of taking an elective in international political economy, a new interdisciplinary field that combines political science, economics and history.
In the 3rd semester, the University of Paris 13 provides courses characterised by an important focus on macroeconomics and financial issues, such as financial regulation, financial institutions, financial crises and financial strategies, all of this in a globalized context, and with sometimes the participation of professionals (from banks). A number of courses will be shared with the students from ”Option II”, including notably the course on finance and the ecological transition, so that these students also get a glimpse of the macroeconomic problems associated with the efforts to resist climate change.
As to the students who choose to spend their entire first year at the University of Roma Tre, the large and eclectic variety of courses that will be offered there will allow them to take either one of the two options. In the first semester, Rome students get fundamental courses in statistical methods, monetary theory and policy, theories of growth and distribution, and about the role of corporations for innovation policies. In the second semester, the courses are split between advanced economic theory and courses dealing with economic development and sustainability issues. Students in Rome will thus have the choice to enter either Option I.C or Option II.B and II.C, and hence in the latter case, to opt for the option based on Development and Sustainability: Policies, States and Corporations. Option II students in the third semester in Paris will share with their Option I fellows the courses which deal with the finance and the modelling of the ecological transition, but in addition they will take courses dealing with the role and the governance of corporations, with development and poverty, and with the economics of energy and the environment.
