Masters in Political Economy Program

The Georgetown Economics Department is pleased to announce that it is partnering with the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management of the Université Libre de Bruxelles to launch a Masters of Political Economy program starting in the Fall of 2017. The degree will be jointly awarded by both institutions. Program participants will take classes in Brussels in the Fall and Spring terms and in Washington, DC in the Summer term. The program will feature faculty members from each institution and policy experts and practitioners from local policy institutions, various research centers and think tanks. The program will be structured such that a fulltime student, with the necessary preparatory background, can complete the course of study in one calendar year by taking the appropriate courses during the three terms. For further information please direct inquiries to Kerstin Gobel.
