Become one of the next generation economists

By the end of this Advanced Master, you will be able to gain a firm understanding of the incentives and behavior of economic (consumers, firms) and political agents (legislatures, government agencies, judicial institutions, NGOs, activist groups, the media), explore the technological and political constraints that shape government interventions, cultivate a deep understanding of the reciprocal relationship between politics and markets and design better government regulations by the investigation of corporate stakeholders and their motivations.

Get the most out of the joint Georgetown-Solvay experience

The Brussels-Washington joint degree in Political Economy is an innovative one-year program combining the strengths of two internationally-renowned institutions. Learn from expert decision-makers in Europe and North-America and explore the specificities and differences between the approaches taken on each continent, their impact in various geopolitically crucial regions around the world and the complex relationships with other actors within this global governance architecture.

Visit EU and US-based institutions

Every year, we organise for the students of the Advanced Master in Political Economy on-site meetings that guide students through the inner-workings of international institutions, both in Europe and the US, such as at the European Commission, the World Bank, the OECD, the IMF and various think tanks.

Increase your skillset

Develop strong new competencies and acquire a toolbox which will help you rigorously analyze both the economics and the politics behind the key policy questions of the 21st century. Develop your soft skills and become more prepared and self-confident to face recruiters.
