The Master Course in Economic Development and Growth-MEDEG is a full-time masters programme organized by a consortium of three top-class European Universities:

  • Universidad Carlos III Madrid -­ Spain (coordinating institution)
  • University
  • Lund University -­ Sweden

MEDEG lasts two academic years, includes 120 ECTS (60 ECTS/year) and consists of 15 course modules delivered through a combination of lectures, classes, tutorials and essay writing with
individual supervisors.

Another key component of the programme are a 8.000-word research dissertation to be written at the end of the first year and a 15.000-­word dissertation to be written at the end of the second year, on subjects chosen by students in consultation with supervisors.


Students are mandatorily required to study in two different universities of the consortium. In each university, they have to remain for one year and complete 60 ECTS. More specifically, the possible mobility options are:

  • Option (A) University A (1st year: 2014-­15) + Lund (2nd year: 2015-­16)
  • Option (B) Carlos III Madrid (1st year: 2014-­15) + Lund (2nd year:2015-16)

MEDEG students can choose to spend their first year either at the University A (Option A) or at Universidad Carlos III Madrid (Option B). A good knowledge of the English language is mandatory
for all students, irrespectively of their chosen Option for the first year (see Admission Requirements).
