The Master in Economics and Political Science aims at providing its students with advanced 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. Specifically, the programme aims at forming professional economists and political scientists. The graduates will not only be endowed with high-level analytical and operational skills, but they will also have an open and critical vision of economic, political and social issues, and a cultural depth that could hardly be achieved by attending a programme centred only on one of the two disciplines. The broadness of the skills provided is testified by the wide range of occupations that EPS graduates have. Former EPS graduates have found employment in leading firms in the banking, insurance and business services sectors, among the others, in international organizations, or have entered well reputed PhD programmes in Italy or abroad (see the website for more detailed information).
