Course summary

The rapidly changing patterns of worldwide social, political and economic exchange exemplified by the end of the Cold War, the technology boom and bust cycle and the contentious discourse of neoliberal globalisation have focused the attention of students and their potential future employers on the multidisciplinary perspective offered by studying International Political Economy.

Overview

Students will study the interaction between markets and politics in conjunction with policy on these areas and how it influences markets. Political Economy at BSIS focuses on the state, markets and society, the study of economic law, corporate governance and capitalism and democracy.

The exposure you are given to policy practice at the international institutions based in Brussels - together with high-quality education - prepares you for a challenging and fulfilling career in international and domestic public policy, diplomacy, non-governmental organisations, as well as in the private sector. Additionally, it allows for a specialisation in a subfield such as development, environmental policy, migration, conflict and security, political strategy and European public policy, and so equips you with cutting-edge qualifications.

Careers

For many students, coming to Brussels is a great opportunity to seek out internship and job opportunities. There is a wealth of opportunities in the city to gain valuable work experience in the institutions, organisations and companies in Brussels which could potentially lead to a career post graduation.

At the Brussels School of International Studies, students have access to the services of Key2advance, a dedicated careers service that provides students with assistance in developing skills and accessing the international job market. The weekly career workshops cover all aspects of the job market starting with rewriting your CV and cover letters to learning networking skills. This leads to a networking event during the Autumn Term that allows students to meet and network with employers and alumni.
