The International Masters in Economy, State and Society (IMESS) is a unique, innovative, dynamic yet firmly established postgraduate programme offered by a consortium of leading European universities. It leads to the award of a highly prestigious double degree (UCL plus partner university). IMESS draws on a unique pool of resources to offer the definitive Master's course focusing on the fascinating Economies, States and Societies of Central and Eastern Europe.
IMESS is a full-time, two-year integrated study programme, with the first year spent at UCL SSEES and the second at one of the partner universities in the Czech Republic (Prague), Estonia (Tartu), Finland (Helsinki), Hungary (Budapest), Russia (Moscow), Serbia (Belgrade) or Poland (Kraków).
The IMESS programme offers three distinct study tracks reflecting the multidisciplinary expertise of the consortium institutions. Each track combines specialist electives (economics, politics or history and culture), research methods training (social sciences or humanities), language tuition (Czech, Estonian, Finnish, Hungarian, Polish, Russian or Serbian) with an advanced research project conducted during the latter part of the degree. The study tracks are:
- Economics and Business
- Politics and Security
- Nation, History and Society
IMESS is contributing to the required pool of expertise necessary for conducting advanced research for private and public sector organisations and, as such, is fast becoming the programme of choice for all those with an interest in the wider European region.
There are funding opportunities available for International and UK/EU students. For full programme, scholarship and application deadline details visit the consortium website: www.imess.eu
