The master’s degree program in Austrian Economics, with the support of Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (URJC), collaborates on an international level with different educational institutions, both formal and informal. At the root of this cooperation lies the importance Universidad Rey Juan Carlos gives to both international relationships and foreign students, particularly in the master’s program in Austrian Economics. Moreover, there are now many educational institutions worldwide devoted to this school of economic thought, which motivates them to work together.
In addition, the director of the program, Jesús Huerta de Soto, has achieved great academic prominence over the years with his prolific scientific output centered on economic science from the Austrian perspective and his excellent work training dozens of students who have enjoyed this master’s program at URJC. His work has inspired many other flourishing projects designed by collaborators, disciples, alumni, and followers, who have been encouraged by Professor Huerta de Soto’s teaching and enthusiasm. Others of his former students have achieved different important positions of academic, entrepreneurial, and political prestige; they have spread Austrian principles in a wide range of sectors; and they have influenced current political and economic affairs.
The master’s program maintains close connections with highly reputable, international institutions of learning. You can read about some of the most notable of these below.
