A word from the Dean

The contemporary world economy is characterized by dynamic changes and growing interdependence. The more and more competitive markets will be won by those who understand how the economic processes taking place in different parts of the world influence and interpenetrate each other. Applied Global Economics studies not only allow you to understand how the global economy works, but also provide instruments for analyzing and measuring the impact of economic and political mechanisms on the situation of consumers, enterprises and national economies.
