Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE)
The Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE), founded in 1997, is a multidisciplinary research institute and graduate school affiliated with Erasmus University Rotterdam. The institute offers a research programme that combines the expertise of the Faculty of Humanities, the Erasmus School of Economics, the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication and the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. EIPE members of staff teach the core courses that form Erasmus School of Philosophy's Research Master in Philosophy and Economics. This English-taught Research Master is open to students with a background in economics or philosophy. Students are immersed in both sciences during the course of the degree, and so acquire the analytical and research skills required for a PhD and/or junior researcher position.
