Economics and Politics is a regionally unprecedented undergraduate program designed to teach the disciplines as a thematic and methodological whole. The interdisciplinary nature of the program and its reliance on a single Game Theoretic toolbox reflects today’s reality, where decisions of economic and political agents have become inextricably intertwined.
The programme is among the most popular programmes at the best universities in the UK, Ireland and the USA. This integrated study programme is for those who wish to acquire not only a deeper understanding of economic processes, but also have a closer look at society and politics. Studying economics combined with politics does have a point, as economics and creation of business-friendly environment are closely related with politics, and many of political decisions rely on economic thinking and economic arguments.
It relies heavily on game theory and quantitative and qualitative data analysis methods, which enable consistent and efficient examination of economic and political crossing points. The ability to use these tools gives an advantage to those who pursue further studies in the best universities of the world or who choose to work in a non-academic sector.
Specializations: international economics, public administration, or politics and state governance.
Upon completion of the programme students successfully pursue career in the banking sector, international
companies, business consulting firms, governmental or the European Union institutions.
