    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    THE TRIO DEGREE FROM VIRJE UNIVERSITEIT AMSTERDAM

    I looked up for the courses online and the universities which offered Philosophy and Politics together. I came across the advertisement of this university, which even offered Economics at the same tuition fee. Therefore, I went ahead to fill the online application form to pursue my education.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The three year Philosophy, Politics and Economics Bachelor’s degree program is created to prepares for future leadership positions in business, politics, academia, and beyond. This program has given me deep insights in philosophy, politics and economics. How the three can be clubbed together and how they actually function together.
