This field provides the tools for analysis of trade and investment relations between nations. Among the questions considered are why and what nations trade and invest internationally, and their effects–and the effects of international labor migration–on wages and employment, technology, international competitiveness, economic development, growth, and the environment. There is emphasis on how policies affect outcomes and on how policies are determined in unilateral, regional or preferential, and multilateral settings.
Students should refer to the Registrar's Field of Study Guide for definitive field requirements in a given academic year.
