Program Description

Economics and Politics

Economics and Politics is a regionally unprecedented undergraduate program designed to teach the disciplines as a thematic and methodological whole. The interdisciplinary nature of the program and its reliance on a single Game Theoretic toolbox reflects today’s reality, where decisions of economic and political agents have become inextricably intertwined. The program is taught entirely in English and is popular with Lithuanian and foreign students alike.

The Economics and Politics Program looks into the logic and outcomes of decision-making by economic and political actors. Being very closely interrelated, these two areas often influence each other; therefore, to forecast the impact of a political decision on economics, one has to understand both areas very well.

The Economics and Politics Program relies heavily on game theory and quantitative and qualitative data analysis methods, which enable consistent and efficient examination of economic and political crossing points. The ability to use these tools gives an advantage to those who pursue further studies in the best universities of the world or who choose to work in a non-academic sector.

Distinctiveness of the Program:

  • A unique study program in Lithuania as it combines economics and politics;
  • Specialisation in any of the following three fields: international economics, public administration, or politics and state governance;
  • Analysis of global and national political and economic specifics.
