M.Sc. Politics, Economics and Philosophy
Are “Wutbürger” (enraged citizens) a political side issue or do we need more direct democracy? What is good corporate governance or how could the diesel scandal have been forestalled? Why was the Montreal Protocol on protecting the ozone layer a success and what’s the reason that the implementation of the Paris Agreement on global warming has hit a snag?
Our lives are determined by decisions: in politics and in economics, but also in our private lives. Whether it’s a matter of more civic involvement in politics, or of decision-making in flat or steep corporate hierarchies, or of international treaties that call for shared decision-making, every decision is a critical juncture affecting the subsequent course.
Analyzing individual and collective decisions.
In the master’s program in Politics, Economics und Philosophy (PEP), you learn to analyze individual and collective decision-making processes in order to solve problems in the areas of politics, corporate governance or international relations later on. This rigorous, research-oriented program concentrates on current theories and methods of political science, economics and philosophy.
Let yourself be inspired and you can look forward to a course of studies that guides you toward new, different, and above all, forward-oriented ways of thinking.
