B. MSc program "Quantitative Investing"

C. MSc program "Political Economy"

This MSc Program in Political Economy aspires to be a pioneering program and as such to fill a long-term knowledge gap in the study of economic and social phenomena at the graduate level in Greece.

After a long economic and social crisis in our country, the teaching of economics and social sciences in general continues to be characterized by a surplus of conventionality and a great lack of realism and pluralism. This results in the educational inability of students to understand, explain and empirically assess how modern capitalist economies operate, as well as how economic policy is formulated and conducted. Major theorists of economics (especially during the period when its official title was Political Economy) such as Marx, Veblen, Keynes, Kalecki and non-conventional schools of economic thought are almost completely absent from the undergraduate and graduate programs of most departments of economics. This serves as a major cognitive constraint for understanding the economic behavior of individuals, social groups and classes, the causes of the economic crisis, high unemployment, poverty, etc., and for formulating effective economic policies to address them.

The content of the curriculum of this MSc Program in Political Economy is formed with a main purpose to address the aforementioned insufficiency of the conventional programs. In the context of the tradition of Political Economy, its intention is to provide a comprehensive knowledge of non-conventional approaches to the way modern capitalist economies operate and to the major causes of their instability. Methodological pluralism and realism are the distinct advantages of this program, which aspires to provide the necessary training to all those who value economics as the cornerstone of the social sciences.
