Economic and financial analyses increasingly require careful consideration of the international political environment. The MS in Global Commerce & Finance (MSGCF) provides a robust framework for understanding economic and financial interactions as they relate to the global political landscape.
As global economic integration expands, sound financial decisions in the public and private sectors cannot be based solely on domestic considerations. The MSGCF program augments rigorous study in economic theory and analysis with deep examination of the cross-cutting global, regional, and local issues affecting business. Curriculum draws on applied economics and financial analysis, predictive modeling, political economy, new institutional economics, and behavioral economics and neuroeconomics to understand global economic and financial interactions. Hands-on training in quantitative research gives our students a competitive edge, allowing them unique insight into international finance that takes into account the evolving relationship between commerce and international politics and policy. Our transdisciplinary approach creates thoughtful problem solvers who know when to reach across academic boundaries.
