Master’s Programme in Global Political Economy

This master program aims to introduce students to the study of Global Political Economy (GPE), and provides a comprehensive introduction to the main theoretical approaches and most pressing historical and contemporary issues in the discipline.

The Master’s Programme in Global Political Economy encourage students to think in a reflective and challenging way about issues like global financial crisis, international trade, global distribution of labour, migration, gender politics, global security, global governance, and environment. The program highlights three main perspectives that run through all courses and will serve as guiding principles to understand the emergence of GPE and its roots and implications in world affairs today: economics, history and power. The program provides the necessary tools to analyze the international community’s evolution and the making of our world order, especially in the post-War period. The program will prepare students for a professional as well as scientific career.
