Admission Students, Academic Year 2019



The Master of Arts in International Economics and Finance is a graduate program offered by the Faculty of Economics, at Chulalongkorn University. Our program is the first in Thailand providing an excellent balance of international economics and finance. More than a decade since its establishment, our foresight about the necessity and relevancy of the program has been proved right all along. Through the years, we have succeeded in offering students with academic and practical  knowledge to enhance their potential and to lay a solid foundation for  a professional career in economics and finance. While international economics provides a perspective on a world economy increasingly integrated through global trade, international finance deals with the financial markets and institutions that have fueled this impressive development of trade and cross-border investment. The unique combination of international economics and finance has never failed to challenge and stimulate our students to the fullest.

The success of our program is acknowledged by the placement  of our alumni, who work for a variety of respectable economic organization such as the UN, the Bank of Thailand, as well as world league consulting firm and investment banks.
