Masters in Political Economy Program

The Georgetown Economics Department has partnered with the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management of the Université Libre de Bruxelles to launch a Masters of Political Economy program. The first class started in the Fall of 2017. Upon successfully completing the Program, each student will receive a certificate from Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management and a diploma from Georgetown, which will be presented side by side. Both documents will reference the Georgetown Master of Arts and the ULB Certificate of Advanced Master, and will include the name of the other institution. Each document will be signed only by representatives from the issuing institution. Program participants will take classes in Brussels in the Fall and Spring terms and in Washington, D.C. 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 Thomas Lewis, Masters Program Coordinator.
