BI closing down Master of Science in Political Economy

9 December 2011

As the MSc in Political Economy has experienced low enrolment figures as well as it is outside the prioritized fields within the strategy for 2010-2014 it has been decided to close the programme from the autumn of 2012.

The BI strategy for the period up to 2014 stipulates that ”BI activities should as a main rule be financially profitable” and that ”the availability of academic staff and the number of students will determine which programmes will be offered at any time".

New admission requirements in the autumn of 2012 will in all likelihood lead to a further reduction in admission numbers. The programme is therefore expected not to attain the goal of financial profitability.

No students will be admitted to the programme in the autumn of 2012, but those who started in the autumn of 2010 or 2011 will complete their studies as planned.
