Emagister adds to its catalogue the MA in International Political Economy (IPE), which is an interdiciplinary course with a broad scope, and has a solid foundation in Bifröst University’s position as a Nordic university in close proximity to the Arctic region.
This study course prepares students for undertaking professional responsibilities in internatinal forums, including international organisations, NGO´s, multinational corporations, media and other agencies and practices in which understanding of global interdependence between processes of economic flows and political governance is valuable.

This master program is mainly taught online but students will clearly see the benefits of living in Bifröst campus with close proximity to inspiring nature, to the campus library and to a part of the faculty that lives on campus. The cost of living in Bifröst campus is relatively low and the student union actively organises events throughout the school-year.

Each semester has two modules with two courses in each module and two ´on campus´ workshops, one in the beginning of the program (August 2018) and one in the end (May 2019). Students can work on the MA thesis from June 2019 to December 2019.
