MCP in Economic and Public Policy in Central and Eastern Europe
Master certificate programmes (MCP) provide a one-semester long education for 30 credits, combining compulsory and elective courses. A certificate will be awarded after the successful completion of any of the two programmes.
The aim of the one-semester programme is to provide students with the most updated and relevant knowledge on the CEE region and its economic and political transformation, and its integration into the European Union and world economy. Besides a strong policy-oriented approach, the course also provides theoretical training, relying on the latest research in International Political Economy and Transformation Economics, and it also builds upon the theoretical tradition that has made Hungarian economic research well-known throughout the world – just to mention Mr. János Kornai or Mr. György Lukács.
Topics cover Integration and Transformation of CEE, Globalisation from the perspective of Central and Eastern Europe, Economic Policy and Public Finance in Transition, Quantitative Methods in Transformation Studies, Public Policy Process in CEE, EU Economic Policies, etc. As the topics reflect, the basic aim of our Faculty is to provide education for foreign students in the field of Hungarian and Central and Eastern European economic policies embedded in a European and global context. The basic techniques and methods that students have learned at their home institutions will be applied to specific problems facing Central and Eastern Europe. Even those students who are absolute beginners in Transformation Economics or Comparative Political Economy will find our courses appealing, since our enthusiastic academic staff educates students on the most important concepts, methods and practical issues of economic and public policy.
