Examine the impact of globalization on European integration using the theories of international trade, capital markets, and economic development in a European context. The aim of the program is to give you a critical understanding of the links between economic integration, comparative advantage, and international competitiveness.

First, you go to Western Denmark to visit Danish companies, and then on a week-long study tour to two of the largest economic hubs of the EU - Brussels and Paris - to debate issues such as the European single market structure
- Benefit from Denmark as your case study, where you and your classmates will take a comparative look at how Denmark’s small, open economy with high union membership differs from that of the U.S. and negotiates the driving forces and consequences of globalization
- Explore Copenhagen through a hands-on academic lens on field studies with your core course professors, taking you behind the scenes on visits to local institutions such as a think tanks, consulting firms, and labor unions
- Apply economic theory to the current euro crisis in order to understand the dynamics of global financial markets on a regional and European level
