Job description and job opportunities
What's next? Future careers and employability
The MPE is a door-opener: It enables you to pursue careers in business and finance, in academia, philosophy and politics-oriented fields. The MPE is also an ice-breaker: By combining your business studies with philosophy, it makes you stand out from the crowd and triggers curiosity from future employers. As such, our alumni are successful in many walks of life: Some are business founders, others start successful professional careers straightaway, and others again continue their studies with a Master’s degree – in management, politics, finance, philosophy or economics – often at renowned international universities.
Excellent Career Prospects
Given the Frankfurt School’s excellent reputation, our Bachelor programme offers outstanding career prospects. From day one, our Career Services support you in your individual career management and enable you to expand your professional network through exclusive events. Through our career and application workshops, the FS Mentoring Programme and our FS job fairs, we help you gain all the requisite skills to promote a seamless transition from your studies into the career of your choice.
How do you make a good decision? Experience certainly helps, but you also need the ability to take apart a problem from different perspectives, shifting quickly from finance to technology to marketing to sales and back again. Vast amounts of information need to be processed and different interests integrated; but you also need to explain solutions to different audiences and convince them of your conclusions. MPE graduates excel not only in detail mastery of the methods used in today’s business, but also in seeing the big picture.
Studying philosophy is all about improving your analytical and critical thinking. By training you to strip away irrelevant details of a problem and assess the merits of competing solutions, philosophy enables you to cut right to the chase and forces you to give concise and convincing arguments for your position. But philosophy also investigates the most pressing political and moral challenges of our time. Our unique combination of formal and normative philosophical expertise thus gives our MPE graduates the edge in their future careers, not only by teaching them how to tackle normative problems and think more astutely, but also by making them see unexpected connections and challenge complacency.
Economic methods form the core of the MPE formal curriculum, drawing on cutting-edge research by faculty at Frankfurt School in behavioural economics, game and decision theory, computational social science and machine learning. The MPE programme is one of a kind in introducing students to the standard economic frameworks for solving judgement and decision problems, including empirically informed models of decision-making from behavioural economics, and modern machine learning methods in computational social sciences.
