A joint degree between Georgetown University and Solvay Brussels School (ULB)

The Brussels-Washington joint degree in Political Economy is an innovative one-year programme combining the strengths of two internationally renowned institutions. Successful graduates will receive a Master of Arts in Economics from Georgetown University, and an Advanced Master certificate from ULB-Solvay Brussels School.

This unique joint degree from Georgetown University and the ULB-Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management offers:

  • An international experience at the heart of global policy-making decision powers, with full immersion in both Europe (Brussels) and the U.S. (Washington D.C.);
  • A combination of frontier training in formal and quantitative political economy, with a strong emphasis on concrete policy cases;
  • Academics and practitioners who are leading specialists in their field;
  • On-site meetings to learn how to navigate through international institutions and policies, such as at the European Commission, the World Bank, the OECD, the IMF, the European Central Bank, and the U.S. Federal Reserve;
  • Joining the wide and active alumni networks of Georgetown and Solvay.

Programme Objectives

The objective of the program is to prepare the next generation of economists to rigorously analyze both the economics and the politics behind the key policy questions of the 21st century.

The focus on political economy reflects the view that evaluating and addressing global and local economic challenges also requires an understanding of the institutions and political settings in which such challenges arise.

The program aims at providing students with a balanced and attractive mix of solid theoretical knowledge and exposure to hands-on practice through the inclusion of both faculty and experts in the respective fields.

The courses in Brussels and in Washington D.C., two crucial centers of global decision-making, will expose:

  • The specificities and differences between the approaches taken on each continent;
  • Their impact at global level and in various geopolitically crucial regions in the world;
  • The complexity of their relationships with other significant actors within the global governance framework.

Application Requirements:

  • Graduate degree in related discipline
  • Undergraduate degree in related discipline
  • Graduate records examination (GRE)
  • Personal data/curriculum vitae
  • Transcript of records
  • Reference letters

Language Requirements: 
TOEFL score of at least 100 IELTS score (7.0) is also acceptable. The test is waived if a previous degree has been obtained at an English-speaking university.
