Course Overview

This ground-breaking new programme, taught jointly by the Department of Organisation, Work and Technology and the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion, is unique in Europe in bringing together the important areas of politics and management with an interdisciplinary lens. It enables you to develop a sophisticated understanding of social, political, organisational and managerial processes ­and of the connections between them.

It provides an ideal foundation for careers in all kinds of cross-national organisations ­– from multinational companies to NGOs or international bodies such as the European Union or United Nations.

You can choose one of four pathways through the programme:

  • International Relations and Management
  • Philosophy and Management
  • Politics and Management
  • Politics, Philosophy and Management


Each involves a mix of compulsory and optional modules: for further details, see the programme website. The last element of the programme is a substantial research project and dissertation.
