As you develop your skills, you will learn to recognise the forces that shape geographical patterns of economic activity. You will learn to advise firms and governments on how to reap the benefits of globalisation and international value chains.For those seeking to augment the one-year programme in Groningen, there are four possibilities to follow a Double Degree: with Fudan University (Shanghai), the University of Göttingen (Germany), Lund University (Sweden) and Corvinus University (Budapest).
