|University website:||International Programme in Politics and Economics (IPPE)|
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. This three-year multidisciplinary bachelor’s programme, taught fully in English, is the only one of its kind in Sweden. Gain theoretical knowledge and practical skills for positions in public administration, nonprofits and private corporations. Highly international, this programme also gives you opportunities to work and study inside or outside of Sweden.
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.
International perspectives are included at every stage, and the entire programme is taught in English. IPPE cooperates with universities in Europe, Africa, the USA, Australia and Asia. We also have special bilateral agreements with University of the Western Cape in Cape Town, South Africa, and San José State University in California, USA, for staff and student exchanges.
Prepare for professional work across cultural as well as national borders to develop, implement and lead projects handling politically and economically oriented issues.
