A WORLD-RENOWNED PROGRAM

The Bachelor of Laws, Politics and Economics is inspired by PPE (philosophy, politics and economics) studies. This field of study dates back to the 1920s, where it was first offered at the University of Oxford as a modern take on classical studies. This holistic, multidisciplinary program was hugely successful, and the world’s best universities quickly followed suit. Today, these degrees are offered at top institutions like IE University, where the young leaders of tomorrow are learning how to impact the future growth of societies and organizations on a global scale.

WHY POLITICS, LAW AND ECONOMICS?

Our world is shaped a countless number of factors that require us to consider issues from different perspectives. Individuals who are able to understand the political, legal and economic elements of this new international landscape are in demand. The objective of the Bachelor in Politics, Law and Economics at IE University is to train a new generation of globally minded professionals, able to confront contemporary issues with a multidisciplinary skillset.

WHY POLITICS?

Politics impacts virtually every aspect of public and private life. From social structures to economic performance, political institutions have real transformative power. Regardless of where your career path takes you, knowledge of political processes will allow you to expertly navigate an array of challenges. At IE University, you will learn how to analyze current events, evaluate policies and anticipate potential outcomes of policy making decisions.

WHY LAW?

Law provides structure to human society. At the same time, the study of law raises important questions of fairness and justice, challenging us to constantly examine the state of the world around us. Bachelor of PLE students will explore these questions, while learning how to construct strong arguments, enhance their critical thinking skills and embrace abstract thought.

WHY ECONOMICS?

Economics studies resource allocation, as well as production and distribution of goods and services. This social science allows us to develop an analytical framework through which to dissect individual, organizational and governmental decision making. As a student of economics, you will examine how policy impacts our world and explore how to design more effective economic models.
