Graduate

Economics (MsC/Ph.D)

Overview


The Graduate Program in Economics examines issues related to industrial organization and competitiveness of local industries and production clusters of the Brazilian industrial park, especially those in Rio Grande do Sul. The GP (Graduate Program) analyzes the international integration process, through the shaping of trade blocks, besides multilateral agreements. These issues are approached both in the empirical and theoretical plans and in their methodological unfoldings.

Emphasis:

Industrial Organization and International Economics

Areas of Study


Innovation and Local Production Clusters
It incorporates advances in empirical investigation and the theoretical plan to the academic activity. The Research focuses on the so-called "industrial studies" related to industrial organization and competitiveness of local industries/production clusters of the Brazilian industrial park, especially those in Rio Grande do Sul. It is also intended that results obtained by the research activity may provide subsidies to the strategies of companies, workers, and the creation of public policies.

International Economic Integration
It analyzes the theoretical and empirical effects of the economic integration regarding trade and the variables studied by the open economy macroeconomics . In trade, the impacts of the international economic integration are analyzed, both in a discriminatory way (preferential, via trade blocks) as well as in a non-discriminatory way (non- preferential, via WTO), especially about variables such as flows of goods and services, welfare, and economic growth. Regarding the open economy macroeconomics, exchange rate regimes, coordination of macroeconomic policies, and capital flows are examined in more detail.
