Political Economy

The process by which collective choices are made is complex and unpredictable. When it becomes necessary to anticipate the actions of governments, private citizens and corporations, those with a Master in Political Economy offer valuable analysis and direction for key decision makers.

 

What is a Master in Political Economy? It is an advanced degree suitable for those with previous undergraduate work in political science, economics, history or business. Programs focus on the strategic reasoning of individuals and collections of people. Students thoroughly investigate the processes, motives and consequences of political choices. Topics of study include government regulations, elections, law and special interest groups. Students are also taught how political competition ultimately impacts society.

 

A Master in Political Economy further develops students’ critical thinking and communication abilities. They are taught the major theories of economics and political science congruently. They are able to relate the two separate disciplines to one another and draw meaningful conclusions. Students develop skill with the most current software and technology and are able to use it to collect and analyze sets of data.

 

The total cost for a master’s program depends on the institution. Students are encouraged to contact the admissions departments of universities under consideration for more specific details about fees and tuition. Most programs will require at least two years of full time study. Students should also take into account housing, course materials and transportation costs.

 

Graduates with a Master in Political Economy are qualified for employment in many government positions. Lobbying firms also value the abilities of these graduates, and many find work as advisors for political campaigns. Some work as researchers or analysts in companies that compete in heavily regulated industries. Consulting work is an option for those who prefer to remain independently employed. These programs also prepare students to pursue higher levels of education. Many eventually complete a doctoral program and go on to find employment in academics.

Masters in Political Economy. ISET's MA program in Economics was launched in fall 2006 as a graduate program at Tbilisi State University. The program takes students through a challenging two year curriculum, comparable in content and quality to the first two years of study in reputable Ph.D. programs in North America and Western Europe. All courses are taught in English by highly-qualified international faculty. Our faculty is diverse, comprising resident professors with PhDs from universities such as Columbia University, Hebrew University and the University of Pennsylvania, and regular visitors who are world leaders in their fields, including several Fellows of the Econometric Society. The entire faculty is committed to helping students design individual study plans, supervising their thesis research, and supporting their applications for both professional jobs and PhD studies abroad. The quality of research and teaching at ISET is guaranteed by the International Faculty Committee, which brings together the ISET faculty and prominent academics from around the world. How is the program structured? In the first year, all students take the same four economics courses (Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Statistics/Econometrics, and Mathematics for Economists), plus supplementary English/Academic Writing courses taught at three different levels for the whole duration of first year. In the second year, students are given the possibility to draw up an individual plan of elective courses. These electives are taught by highly-qualified and internationally-recognized resident and visiting faculty. They cover a wide spectrum of fields like energy economics, environmental economics, labor economics, resource economics, experimental economics, industrial organization, mechanism design, game theory, finance, health economics, education economics, advanced macro, advanced econometrics, development economics, cost-benefit analysis, program evaluation, advanced mathematics, time series, agricultural economics, open economy macro, economic growth, financial econometrics, topics in macroeconomics, among other fields. A star-studded list of visiting professors teaching some of the elective and core courses at ISET included professors from Bonn University, Chicago University, City University of New York, Stanford University, Hebrew University, Warwick University, Western Ontario University, University of Pennsylvania, to name just a few. Students are required to demonstrate mastery of technical research skills by writing and defending a master's thesis or literature critique, applying the tools they acquired in their studies. The master's thesis represents a significant piece of independent economic research while the literature critique critically reviews and interprets current economic research. Both types of writing projects are on a topic chosen by the student with guidance from faculty. In the second-year, students can choose to enroll in one of the concentrations offered at ISET (and thus tailor their study plan, with the help of their faculty advisor, to suit their needs and meet the concentration requirements). The currently-offered concentrations at ISET include "Agricultural Economics", "Energy Economics and Natural Resources Management", "Macroeconomic Policy", "Private Sector Development", "Human Resources Economics" and "Economic Theory". The subject of the students’ writing project (thesis or critique) has to be related to their concentration. The curriculum is supplemented by internships, faculty-led research projects, and frequent opportunities to interact with policymakers and practitioners. [-]

Masters in Political Economy. The effectiveness and legitimacy of modern states is largely determined by the complex interaction of politics, law, and business and economics. Lately, in particular, these interactions have been affected by dynamic transformation processes resulting from globalization and internationalization trends. This has led to the formation of modified statehood forms and new patterns of relationships between state, society and the economy. The Master's degree in Political Science – Public Economics, Law and Politics applies a theoretical and methodological, as well as problem-oriented and integrated, political analysis of these dynamic interactions. CONTENT AND RATIONALE Studies in political science at Leuphana Graduate School combine disciplines, which traditionally deal with the relationship of state, society, and business and economics. Questions, issues and approaches to solutions resulting from these intricately interwoven relationships are analyzed and treated from the joined perspectives of political science, economics and law. The focus is placed on the causes, background, as well as social and economic effects and consequences, of government action. Thus, the course aims at achieving a comprehensive reflection on the relationship between politics, law and economics by applying the tools provided by political science as a discipline, reinforced by interdisciplinary observations. This course of study is part of the scholarship program Public Policy and Good Governance of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Every year, DAAD selects around ten scholarship holders from Central and South American, African and Asian countries to come and study at Leuphana Graduate School. They enhance the experience of studying on this program by lending it an international perspective. [-]
