Double-degree programmes

Lund University School of Economics and Management has joined forces with some of the best business schools to offer four double-degree programmes.  

A double degree programme means that you will spend one year abroad and receive a Master’s degree from both Lund University and from the partner university. In addition to a valuable international experience this gives your education an extra edge and the opportunity to benefit from the expertise and resources from two well renowned universities.

MSc Economic Development and Growth (120 credits)

  • Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain
  • University or Groningen, Netherlands

In this double-degree programme, you spend the first year studying at either Universidad Carlos III de Madrid or University of Groningen. Conditional on successful completion of the first year, you spend the second year at Lund University.

Application and admission is administrated by Universidad Carlos III Madrid and University of Groningen respectively depending on where you want to study your first year. To increase your chance of admission, you are welcome to apply to both universities.

Students admitted to the Master’s in Economic Development and Growth in either Madrid or Groningen who complete the first year and are selected for the second year, will automatically be admitted to Lund.
