O que eu aprenderei?

In an era where there is a growing focus on economic diplomacy, UB’s Bachelor of Arts, BA in International Political Economy and Diplomacy, fills a crucial niche.

The International Political Economy and Diplomacy major provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the global political economy and with the analytical skills needed to evaluate change and direction. The study of the international economic system provides insight into how it produces and distributes wealth.

The study of the international political system provides insight into how institutions and rules govern social and economic development. Because diplomatic negotiations form the basis of new international law, and because diplomacy operates within the framework of extant international law, the study of diplomacy is an important component in the study of international political economy.

Political economy represents a nexus between politics and economics, and international political economy includes study of the area in which international politics and international economics meet. It represents an investigation of the political basis of economic action and the economic basis of political action. An important additional consideration is the role of international law in circumscribing political and economic activity.

Recent graduates of the program have gone on to top graduate programs including Harvard, London, Johns Hopkins, Wisconsin and Columbia. IPED graduates are now working in places such as the UN, major INGOs and in numerous other international organizations and corporations.
