Economics and Politics

This programme erases the traditional boundaries between the disparate fields of economics, political science, and business. Professors from world-renowned universities in the United States and Europe will help you understand how these different topics influence each other. You will learn the proper application of game theory and be able to perform the critical analysis required to evaluate global events. Through this program, you will develop forecasting skills that will let you assess ongoing trends and identify their potential consequences for a business or national economy. The program will provide you with the professional competence you need to become a business analyst, manager, or an academic, both in European and global political-economic organizations.

After graduation you will be able to answer these questions:

Should Lithuania open new embassies in African countries? If so, where and why?
