A full-time, intensive course, with a maximum enrollment of 20 students, the Master in Economics and Finance is a graduate programme that allows students to complete their training in economics providing them with a thorough understanding of the role and working of the economic and financial markets and institutions in modern economies. The Master is entirely taught in English to a fairly small but varied class of students from all over the world, by a faculty that is very active in research and well integrated in international professional networks. Occasional mini-courses and lectures by leading international scholars, as well as a year-long seminar series, complete our offer. In the past two editions, seminars have featured scholars from top European and US institutions, such as Northwestern University, UCLA, Columbia University, Harvard Business School, London School of Economics, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, European University Institute, University of Zurich, Goethe University Frankfurt, European Central Bank. Our research environment also benefits from many initiatives, such as an “Annual Lecture” in Political Economy, which, in recent years, has been delivered by prominent academics such as James Robinson (Harvard University), Peter Howitt (Brown University), Howard Rosenthal (Princeton University), and Daron Acemoglu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology - MIT).
