The new Bachelor in Politics, Law and Economics (PLE) by the IE University was launched in a presentation event last Monday. This new bachelor resembles those implemented in many renowned universities around the world, like the PLE by the Oxford University. This new bachelor degree aims to train the leaders of the future and teach them how to shape their companies and organisations.
The Bachelor in Politics, Law and Economics is an applied and multidisciplinary degree for those wanting to learn about the system dynamics underpinning how the world works. By integrating knowledge and hands-on practice in politics, law and economics, students develop a deep understanding of the dynamics that dictate the relationships between these three fields, empowering them to become agents of change and have a meaningful impact in a globalized world. 'We want to take a global approach to very complicated problems through the different analytical angles that a combination of disciplines provides. We believe that the unification of these sciences, plus a strong emphasis on behavioural science, allows students who are interested in being good analysts and problem-solvers to deal with situation in a rigorous way and have the ability to prioritize', explained Javier de Cendra, Dean of IE Law School.
Adolfo Suárez Illana joined the Dean of the IE Law School and the baron of Gatley, Mr. James O'Neil, at the event. Our colleague and president noted how important both politics, law and economics are for society. Technology, he said, will never replace these disciplines. 'People don't change. People mean relations, and politics, law and economics are just a way of channelling relations.' Adolfo Suárez also made a note on the importance of boosting top quality training programs, specially when it comes to shape the leaders of the future, so that they learn to face any challenge they approach. 'Crisis will always be there somehow. Don't be afraid, you just need to know how to handle them' explained Suárez to students and potential students who attended the event.
