The globalisation process challenges our traditional understanding of how political and economic decisions are made – and who makes them. Study the integration of politics and economics in a global context that also considers histories, cultures and societies.
Highly international, this International Programme in Politics and Economics programme at University West also gives you opportunities to work and study inside or outside of Sweden.
Why This Programme?
The International Programme in Politics and Economics (IPPE)is the only international multidisciplinary programme in Sweden that offers a bachelor’s degree in politics and economics. Furthermore, University West offers an intimate campus environment without the usual barriers between academic staff and students. Here, your professors are easily accessible to answer questions, hold discussions and provide individual feedback.
Students and staff come from Sweden, Europe and across the globe – all continents are represented. This gives your programme a truly international, multicultural study environment that is also highly personal – in addition to a lively, stimulating student life.
With your international IPPE education, employment opportunities include local and national public administration, the EU and other international institutions, as well as non-governmental organisations. Other possibilities include careers in industry and commerce, within and outside of Sweden.
IPPE alumni have made careers as planners, project leaders, administrators and analysists in municipalities, regional authorities, state organisations, NGO’s and international organisations as well as banks and private companies.
