“…. Our civilization like a starship sent into space, travels towards a not-doing society, a society of being where the value of ideas and creativity in thinking prevail on action. The next psychological revolution will produce the shift to a more evolved economy, more subtle and intelligent, to a more efficient, idealistic and concrete capitalism, at the service of life on earth and of the evolution of man.

In this economy individuals inspired by an “ethical objectiveness” will emerge, cells of a new humanity, capable of nurturing the dream of a global economy and of a politics of a planetary responsibility, people aware that individual, personal improvement is the basis for every progress made in society... ”

From ‘Economy is a Way of Dreaming’, by Elio D’Anna, Founder and President, European School of Economics

The programme aims to:

  • provide a coherent, broad based programme of study of political and economic history, theory and organisations and their management and their growth within the context of a changing external environment
  • provide an understanding of how values are allocated and resources are distributed and contested on the local, sectoral, national, regional and global levels
  • place questions of political and international order and disorder, decision-making and political contestation at the centre of analysis
  • develop in students a capacity to think critically and independently about events, ideas and institutions
  • provide new ideas that will be the seeds of development for independent thinking and creation of visionary leaders

The Bachelor of Science in International Economics and Political Science (BSc Hons) is a three-year, full-time course with two pathways – one in Leadership and the other in Diplomacy. All of the ESE undergraduate Bachelor degree programmes are taught in English and have a standard 360 UK/180 ECTS credit structure and can be studied under the permission of the academic.

Students will also have the added advantage of being able to pursue their programme in any of the ESE campuses, whether London, Milan, Florence, Madrid or Rome. They will have the unique opportunity to transfer between campuses on a per term or per year basis, experiencing the same programme in multiple international contexts and cultures.

ESE's Internship Programme:

We believe that anyone can realize their dreams and have the ability to do what they really love. From the very first year of study, ESE students therefore have the concrete opportunity to proactively move towards their professional goals and target their objectives. While developing a range of marketable skills and competencies, internships will furthermore allow students to:

  • apply course knowledge in practical situations within the work environment
  • bridge the gap between undergraduate study and the labour market
  • develop inner qualities and gain a practical understanding of the concept of individual responsibility, according to which external events are projections of one’s own inner state
  • test individual career plans by obtaining experience in a chosen field, and thus helping one to better understand what it is that they really love to do
  • develop a professional network and assess internship providers for future employment opportunities
  • Working in collaboration with more than fifteen hundred leading international companies, including some of FORTUNE’S 100 Best Companies to Work For, the European School of Economics offers one of the most competitive university internship programmes available today.

    Many students are offered jobs even before graduation. The Internship Department plays a crucial role in assisting students to identify their objectives and learn how to exert their full potential. It provides personalized and challenging internship placements worldwide at all ESE campuses.
