The International Economic and Political Studies (IEPS) programme at Charles University is based on the Oxford-style "PPE". Although the emphasis in IEPS is placed on economics and political science, students will also be expected to explore their historical, legal and sociological aspects. The nature of the programme is highly flexible and allows specialisation in economics, politics, or humanities.
The programme is taught by members of all five institutes of the faculty, in particular, the Institute of Political Studies (IPS) and the Institute of Economic Studies (IES). IEPS aims to enhance the ways of critical thinking and understanding of social, economic and political phenomena in globalised societies. Students deal with the nature of economic objectives of agents, social organisation, institutions of power, the emergence of conflicts and efforts for cooperation. They are expected to master the principles of modern non-conventional economic thinking and be able to apply it in political decision-making at the level of supra-national institutions, states, regional governments, corporations, firms, political parties and civic societies.
The careers open to IEPS graduates are boundless. Due to the broad foundation of the discipline students often choose a wide range of profession paths including international organisations, financial services, business, politics, information systems, marketing, academia, social work, management consultancy and many branches of public services. Prague is ideally located in the heart of Europe for internships, networking and conferences, since there are many of international corporations and foreign agencies situated right in the city and offering opportunities for students looking to work and study.
