You’ve probably heard how people are calling today’s world complex. How the challenges we’re facing are ‘bigger than ever’. That’s not completely true though. Sure, they’re complex, but they’re also intertwined. From climate change to conflicts between management levels: you can look at them from a political, social, legal and economic perspective.
That’s why we believe in joining forces - academically, personally and professionally. Within PPLE, we connect the dots between Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics. We need interdisciplinary connections to create a better understanding of the modern world, to analyse and create solutions that were previously hidden or unknown. Because you can’t understand nor solve intertwined problems by looking at them from just one perspective.
PPLE educates those who want to shape a more humane society. We help students to gain multiple perspectives. Whatever they decide to do after PPLE – continue studying, get a job, start a business or travel the world — we know they’ll have the right tools to steer through transitions. By crossing outdated boundaries, our students are able to challenge existing systems, and go beyond the obvious. In an ever changing world we will prepare you for change itself.
Being a part of tomorrow’s world requires discipline. Not just one, but four. At PPLE, we believe a well-rounded education needs multiple frames of reference and personal guidance. That’s why we’ve developed a personal and interdisciplinary programme that combines insights from Political Science, Psychology, Law and Economics. Quite ambitious, isn’t it?
But so are tomorrow’s solutions. We need open and critical minds that aren’t afraid to untangle what’s in front of us, and have a multifaceted approach. We provide students with the necessary toolkit that is essential to shape political, social, legal and economic transitions. With a personal approach and our very own building, we create an environment that allows students to thrive both personally and academically. As a result graduates won’t become just a manager, lawmaker, consultant, lawyer or politician: they'll be more versatile, and better equipped than with any mono-disciplinary (and perhaps impersonal) schooled Bachelor.
PPLE creates the workforce and management of the future, with empathy and resilience.
This is how we add value to a society in which people are at the centre of progress. Because after all, all of our four disciplines will make you understand and guide human behaviour better, each in their own way.
