      Emagister adds to its catalogue the MA in International Political Economy (IPE), which is an interdisciplinary 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 international 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.
