Applied public economics and policy focuses on the processes by which various types of policies and regulations are created, as well as the broader economic, political and social factors.

For the operation of the MSc the existing material and technical infrastructure (e.g. classrooms, library, laboratories, etc.) of the University of Piraeus and the Department of Economics is used. In particular, postgraduate students have at their disposal fully equipped PC laboratories, a richly updated Library with access to the global electronic bibliography, which meet the requirements of the Programme.
