The Faculty of Philosophy, in a partnership with the Faculty of Business and Administration, are pleased to announce the launch of their new jointly organized MA program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, starting October 2017. It is the first PPE program in Romania, and one of the very few in Eastern Europe.

Internationally, PPE programs are highly successful at the most prestigious universities, due mainly to the unique combination of skills, perspectives and analytical tools they provide. The first PPE curricula was established at Oxford in the 1920s, and the model was soon followed worldwide. Today universities such as Oxford, London School of Economics, Warwick, Princeton, Yale or Duke offer PPE degrees at various levels. After 1990, PPE programs have gained hold also in “continental” Europe, and are offered, among others, by Leiden, Lund, Amsterdam, Bern, Zurich, Graz, Hamburg, Milan, Prague and now Bucharest.

There is an ever-increasing demand on the labor market for employees with an excellent intellectual mobility, able to deploy competently multi criteria-tools for analysis and who are apt to grasp the various challenges of a decision-making situation (ethical, economic, social etc). Our PPE syllabus aims to meet this demand, educating future professionals who can fulfill easily different organizational roles in business, government, politics or research).

The huge numbers of PPE alumni with spectacular careers (to give but one example, in 2015 in Great Britain both the prime minister and the opposition leader were former PPE students) are the best evidence for the array of opportunities that PPE programs consistently deliver.

By its nature, an MA program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics is highly inter-disciplinary. The course and seminar instructors are highly reputed professors and researchers from the faculties of Philosophy and Business and Administration, as well as invited experts at the top of their profession in constitutional law, political science or economics.
