Overview

The International Economics and Political Science (Hons) programme from the European School of Economics aims to:

  • provide an understanding of how values are allocated and resources are distributed and contested on the local, sectoral, national, regional and global levels.
  • place questions of political and international order and disorder, decision-making and political contestation at the centre of analysis
  • develop in students a capacity to think critically and independently about events, ideas and institutions
  • provide new ideas that will be the seeds of development for independent thinking and creation of visionary leaders

The Bachelor of Science in International Economics and Political Science (BSc Hons) is a three-year, full-time course with two pathways – one in Leadership and the other in Diplomacy. All of the ESE undergraduate Bachelor degree programmes are taught in English and have a standard 360 UK/180 ECTS credit structure and can be studied under the permission of the academic.

The two required internships may be in one of the affiliated companies seen below in the ESE’s Internship Programme section – these are only some of the 1500 companies with whom we are affiliated.

Students will also have the added advantage of being able to pursue their programme in any of the ESE campuses, whether London, Milan, Florence, Madrid or Rome. They will have the unique opportunity to transfer between campuses on a per term or per year basis, experiencing the same programme in multiple international contexts and cultures.
