The dissertation is a very important component of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree EGEI. It counts for 15 ECTS.
A dissertation topic should have an explicit international economics application, including comparative work. Further, it should:
- Have an original empirical part, albeit of limited scope, OR
- Contribute to theory (in the best of cases), OR
- Be a ‘meta-empirical’ study, i.e. a comparative study of empirical results, with particular care to synthesis, OR
- Be a thorough critical survey of the literature (empirical and/or theoretical).
