The rapid pace of globalization has increased the demand for professionals with training in international economics and economic development. Our one of a kind Master's in International and Development Economics (IDEC) provides students with the knowledge and skills to understand how market forces can be harnessed to empower developing countries to break from cycles of poverty.

International Fieldwork

During the summer, you’ll form a small group with fellow students to collect primary data and access secondary data as part of an internship or partnership with an international institution. Your research will be the basis for your master’s thesis, which you’ll develop under your adviser’s supervision.

With more than 230 million global citizens living outside their home countries, international migration is one of the most critical issues facing the global community in the 21st century. The challenges that these global citizens face are the focus of this master’s program, which prepares professionals to better the lives of migrants and refugees throughout the world.

Students study topics of global migration with top researchers, professors, project practitioners, and policy makers in the field of migration studies. The program includes an optional semester of study at Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. Graduates are prepared for careers in local, state and national governmental agencies; policy think tanks and policy and planning consulting firms; community-based non profits and non-governmental organizations; international agencies; advocacy and public interest organizations; philanthropic organizations and foundations; and other private-sector entities.

Learning Outcomes

Students will:

  1. Critically analyze the theories, concepts, and research findings in migration studies from an interdisciplinary perspective.
  2. Evaluate the role of governments and civil society organizations in community representation, policy creation, and resource allocation in relation to migration and mobility.
  3. Apply knowledge of the humane, legal, and political characteristics of migration as a social reality and create related social interventions.
  4. Plan, generate, and interpret a research study on an important issue in migration studies.
  5. Develop field studies among migrant communities to understand realities, dynamics and logics of migration.
