Educational and learning aims
The Economics and political science master’s programme aims at providing its students with advanced and complete training in both economics and political science. Such training should be comparable to that offered by any leading international master’s programme in each of the two disciplines separately taken.
Specifically, the master’s programme aims at forming professional economists and political scientists. They will not only be endowed with high-level analytical and operational skills, but they will also be characterised by such an open and critical vision of economic, political and social issues, and such a cultural depth that could hardly be achieved by attending a programme centred on a single or prevailing disciplinary field.
The Economics and political science degree is designed to train students in advanced methodologies, analytical tools and quantitative techniques used in all fields of economics and political science. Economics and political science graduates will be ready to undertake a wide array of career paths in multinational companies, political institutions, public organizations, and other professions demanding high intellectual skills, robust technical competencies and versatile knowledge. They will also be well prepared to engage in further academic research in top PhD programmes.
