Philosophy, Politics and Economics

Does globalisation threaten social solidarity? How do we encourage corporate social responsibility? How must we understand populist movements? How can we rise to the challenge of climate change?

These complex challenges face our world today. They cannot be solved or analysed from one discipline alone. We need an interdisciplinary approach that cuts across boundaries. This is what our selective 1-year Master's programme in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) offers. The programme aims at ambitious students with a wide range of interests – students who want to explore the philosophical dimensions of political and economic issues and develop and apply their critical thinking tools. If you are interested to work at the interface between politics, economics and philosophy, this is your master's programme.

What will you learn? The programme will equip you with the central theoretical and methodological tools from PPE that allow you to understand and critically examine complex problems ranging from global poverty to the financial crisis. You will learn to review the political and economic complexities of organizational structures. You will see what is at stake in theories of democracy, political power, collective decisionā€making, social deliberation and economic growth. And you will learn how to apply theories and methods to concrete problems both locally and globally.
