      International Economic and Political Studies (IEPS) is a post-graduate (M.A.) study modelled on the principles of the Oxford style PPE programmes that are among the most favoured educational concepts in social sciences. Their popularity has been earned due to the subsequent success of its graduates in the labour market throughout the world. The study is open to three specialization tracks: economics, politics and humanities  IEPS, taught in English, aims at an interdisciplinary understanding of social phenomena by developing skills useful for analysis and management suitable a wide range of careers and activities. It allows students to explore the foundations of domestic and international politics and economics in a manner that is underpinned by philosophical rigour and communication skills. The programme includes courses aimed at fostering critical thinking of social developments in the world, gaining sensitivity to ethical challenges in decision-making and designing policies in an environment marked by cultural diversity, economic inequality, requirements of efficiency and conflicts of the objectives of agents and institutions. Students deal with the nature of economic objectives of agents, social organisation, institutions of power, emergence of conflicts and aims at cooperation. They are expected to master the principles of modern non-conventional economic thinking and be able to apply it in political decision-making at the level of supra-national institutions, states, regional governments, corporations, firms, political parties and organisations of citizens.
