Master in European Economic Governance (MEEG)

LUISS School of European Political Economy
Campus Full time 1 year October 2017 Italy Rome

The MEEG aims at training full-fledged economists and experts in the field of European regulation and policy. Technical and analytical competencies acquired through the program are intended to form professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the European regulatory framework, who are adept at managing relations between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. [+]

Best Masters in Economics and Administration in Italy 2017. NEW - Master in European Economic Governance This master's program will complement SEP’s other activities, which are currently focused on the analysis of the economy and governance of both the European Union (EU) and the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), with an aim to develop policy suggestions. SEP's analytical research will enhance MEEG's theoretical, institutional and applied knowledge. After a one-year course, MEEG students will earn an international master's degree (Master di II livello) in Economics. The master’s program is divided into two terms. The first term focuses on providing essential analytical and macroeconomic tools, as well as an overview of the historical development and legal evolution of the EU and EMU. In the second term, courses concentrate on the internal market of the EU and related key regulatory issues, such as the regulation of banking and capital markets, corporate governance, consumer protection, energy, and the environment. In order to get the most out of these courses, students are expected to already possess basic analytical tools, and two preliminary courses will be offered to those who lack prior training in the field of economics. All candidates will be required to attend a course on the management of data processing programs (Math-Lab), in addition to a course on application sources and techniques for European Funds. Aim The MEEG aims at training full-fledged economists and experts in the field of European regulation and policy. Technical and analytical competencies acquired through the program are intended to form professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the European regulatory framework, who are adept at managing relations between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. Almost all big and medium-sized firms operating within EMU member states entertain stable and continuous interactions with key European institutions. These interactions are often hindered by insufficient knowledge of the regulatory framework on the side of firms. On the flipside, European institutions often fail to factor in technical and country-specific instruments, causing them to inadequately assess the impact of their regulatory framework on the private sector. The MEEG aims at training professionals who can see the complete picture, and act as a vital link between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. Program The MEEG is a second level master's degree (Master di II livello). It is conducted in English, with a completion requirement of 60 credits. All applicants must possess a four or five-year undergraduate degree (or equivalent diploma), and will be selected based on their CV, and, in certain cases, an interview. The MEEG program includes two preliminary courses (for candidates who require basic technical tools), twelve main courses, two instrumental courses (Math-Lab and Application for European Funds), and three optional courses. Each of the preliminary courses lasts 12 hours and grants no credit. Each of the main and instrumental courses lasts 20 hours (including possible course-specific seminars) and grants 3 credits; 3 credits are provided by each of the optional courses (see below). A master's thesis provides 6 credits, and additional credits derive from activities in common with other master's programs, or self-directed activities approved by the teaching board. The MEEG intends to assist students with solid academic track records in finding internship opportunities at economic and financial institutions, both national and European. Instruction is divided into a preparatory phase, if necessary, and two full academic terms. Students who need to acquire basic technical tools for advancing through the program must take two preliminary courses in September, neither of which provide credits toward graduation. The first academic term spans October-December, during which students must complete between 7-8 courses (21-24 credits). The second term spans March-May, and consists of the remaining 7-8 courses (21-24credits), along with additional seminars as required. For all courses, attendance is compulsory. Lectures are usually held three days per week. A fourth day is reserved for general conferences and seminars, as well as internal course-specific events. A fifth day is dedicated to tutoring and discussion sessions, as well as individual study. The period from June to September is devoted to preparing the master's thesis and/or completing a possible internship. The program's structure allows for some flexibility in order to accommodate individual interests. Motivated candidates may submit proposals for self-directed study to the teaching board, with the understanding that refusal is a possibility. To earn the master's degree, candidates must pass a written exam at the end of each completed course write, and present a thesis to the teaching board, and satisfy the requirement for self-directed study. Program MEEG comprises the following courses: (i) two preliminary courses (to be taken in September) dealing with mathematical and statistical applications of economic theory and policy; (ii) two main courses on European macroeconomic theory and policy; (iii) six main courses on European regulation; (iv) one main course on European and comparative law; (v) one main course on European economic history; (vi) one main course on European economic institutions; (vii) one main course on European political institutions; (viii) two instrumental courses; (ix) two elective courses or group of courses; (x) seminars. In general (see below for exceptions), a completed program of study will include the twelve main courses, two instrumental courses, two elective courses, and additional seminars. Exceptions Candidates who do not have sufficient quantitative skill at the time of enrollment will be required to complete two additional preliminary courses. Candidates who possess an undergraduate degree lacking in economic training can substitute the two preliminary courses under (i) with two basic courses in Maths and Statistics offered by LUISS University. Additionally, they will be requested to replace the three optional courses under (ix) with three basic courses on microeconomics, macroeconomics and economic policy, offered by other degree programs at LUISS University. To supplement the above-mentioned courses, the master's program will include: (i) seminars held by key European representatives; (ii) professional training seminars, possibly in common with other master's programs; and (iii) seminars in which candidates will present their theses. Near the end of the instruction period, the MEEG will assist in the process of finding internship opportunities. These may be found at economic and financial institutions (both national and European), as well as at private firms. Curriculum SEP Senior Researchers, SEP Senior Fellows, and SEP Friends constitute the core of the MEEG's academic staff. This group cooperates with representatives from EU political and juridical institutions, notably, key personages already participating in other SEP and LUISS School of Government (SoG) activities. The MEEG provides candidates with flexibility in their academic endeavors, allowing them to tailor their path of study to their professional backgrounds, interests, and career preferences. The list of courses below shows the variety of options available, whether they be courses belonging to other master's programs in SEP and SoG, or those belonging to other first and second degree master's programs at LUISS University.

Their progress will be supervised by a member of the teaching staff or a senior researcher chosen by the teaching staff. Thanks to the structure outlined above, the MEEG program provides high-level training to assist candidates in reaching their professional goals. KEY ELEMENTS OF MEEG What we trust in and work for everyday EUROPE AS A KEY-FIELD OF INTEREST Companies and institutions operating in the internal market gain competitiveness by adopting a European perspective SKILLS FOR NEW PROFESSIONALS Full-fledged economists who link national institutions or companies with European institutions INTERNATIONAL CONNECTIONS SEP is part of a network of research and policy centres LUISS'S ADDED VALUE Over 200 companies and institutions collaborate with LUISS and offer its graduates employment opportunities MEEG’S GOALS What the MEEG will do DEVELOP PROFESSIONALS FOR EUROPEAN INSTITUTIONS AND COMPANIES MATCH THE CORPORATE ACTIVITY WITH THE EUROPEAN INSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK GIVE YOUNG PEOPLE THE POTENTIAL TO WORK IN A EUROPEAN CONTEXT DEEPEN UNDERSTANDING OF EU INSTITUTIONS AND ITS ACTIVITIES PARTICIPANTS' PROFILE The MEEG program seeks to attract candidates who are interested in European studies, who aim to become key professional gures in their elds through a better understanding of the relations between national institutions or private companies and European institutions. Admission requirements: Master’s Degree (Italian Laurea Magistrale or equivalent international Degree) English knowledge: C1, C2 Deep interest in European policies European vision and global mindset DOCUMENTS Applicants must send the following documents: Application request CV Possible additional certifications OPPORTUNITIES With advanced technical and analytical training, graduates of the MEEG program will have an advantage when seeking employment at: European institutions national institutions private or public companies, as a “link” with the European institutions lobbying firms research centers The technical and analytical competence that participants will acquire at MEEG are intended to form professionals in the field of European institutions and in the management of relations between national institutions or companies and European institutions. Private sector interaction with European institutions is often based on insu cient knowledge of regulatory framework. On the ipside, European institutions often do not adequately assess the impact of regulation on productivity, especially through the lens of technical and country- speci c instruments. The MEEG program aims at training professionals who can play these missing roles, both on the side of national institutions and companies, as well as that of European institutions. INTERNSHIP The MEEG program intends to assist its graduates' search for internship opportunities, at national and European economic and nancial institutions. The LUISS network and its connections with national and European institutions, as well as the business world, increase internship opportunities. LUISS NETWORK What distinguishes LUISS is its privileged relationship with the business world. Over 200 companies, multinationals, and public and private institutions collaborate with the university, each offering real opportunities to enter the business world. LUISS provides students with multiple opportunities to meet and learn from business professionals. Its connections with the institutional and European network enhances the career prospects of its graduates.

Master in in Resource Economics and Sustainable Development (RESD)

University of Bologna School of Economics, Management and Statistics
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 Italy Rimini

RESD offers an excellent preparation in environmental economics, a critical understanding of the issues involved in sustainable development both from a theoretical and practical perspective and of the complex interactions between economic decisions, market forces, governmental policies and the environment. [+]

Best Masters in Economics and Administration in Italy 2017. Are you interested in tackling the environmental challenges of tomorrow and the issues of sustainable development? We will offer you a solid preparation in environmental economics, a critical understanding of the issues involved in sustainable development both from a theoretical and practical perspective and of the complex interactions between economic decisions, market forces, governmental policies and the environment. Programme objectives RESD graduates will be able to critically evaluate the qualitative and quantitative implications of environmental policies and to autonomously produce, research and forecast concerning the evolution of markets for natural resources and to contribute to the design, production and marketing of products compatible with the sustainability of natural resources. RESD courses will provide an in-depth analysis of natural resources, taking into account the institutional setup of markets and the competitive strategies of firms. Overview The Paris Climate Agreement reached at COP21 last December 2015 reinforced the objective of keeping global temperature rise well below 2 C - and even further to 1.5 C above pre-industrial levels. According to the Copenhagen-based European Environment Agency (EEA), Europe has improved air and water quality, cut greenhouse gas emissions and improved waste recycling and waste management practices in recent years. But new, more courageous policies have to be implemented by the European Union to reach the ambitious goals of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% compared with 1990 levels by 2030, and by 80-95% by 2050. Moreover, by 2030 the European Union aims to increase energy efficiency by at least 27% and to increase the share of consumption from renewable energy sources to at least 27%.The European Commission has estimated that the long term shift to a greener, low-carbon economy by 2050 will require investments of an extra 270 billion euros a year (1.5 per cent of EU gross domestic product). These investment, together with national policies and investments aim at turning Europe into a low-carbon and highly energy efficient economy and will boost the economy, create jobs and strengthen the countries’ competitiveness. Environmental economists with a strong background in economics and management, able to interact with engineers and chemists, thus with an interdisciplinary educational background, will play a crucial role in this process. This is the profile of RESD graduates, who are able to employ tools and standard methods in economics and management to environmental and resources related issues. The main fields in which the environmental economist can be involved are the followings: Waste management will become an ever-important regulatory function at the local level. Agencies that manage waste both in Italy and in other European countries are facing increasing legislative and legal actions. Some of these agencies have sophisticated staff structures that employ environmental economists along with the usual unit of planners, and accountants. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) refers to companies that take responsibility for their impact on society. Empirical evidence suggests that CSR is increasingly important for firms’ competitiveness. In 2014 the European Parliament ruled that disclosure of information on environmental, labor and human rights impact becomes mandatory for large companies. This will further the diffusion of CSR practices and enlarge CSR units in companies. Environmental protection/natural resource economics, such as the introduction of environmentally friendly processes and practices within the local area to safeguard the economic sustainability of the businesses against rising expectations and the awareness of local inhabitants and companies for environmentally friendly behavior is commonly conducted by both, local governments and private enterprises; these activities necessitate of decision makers with the knowledge of decision making tools and environmental valuation methods. Environmental and eco-innovation consulting has become a lucrative field and today some of the larger firms are hiring environmental economists. In some cases an environmental economist can have an impact on the planning outcome and on project mitigation where some development features have an adverse environmental impact. Moreover, in several situations, eco-innovations and firms redesigning of their production process require a careful life-cycle assessment of products. Project management/Strategic planning specialist/Urban economist opportunities arise for environmental economists within some of international agencies such as World Bank and its subsidiaries; some other opportunities lie in far off units of the non-profit world (conservation organizations and NGOs). Food and agricultural economics is one area where sustainability issues of practices related to food safety, crop fertilization and food production are of strategic importance and environmental and resource economists will play a crucial role in this field. Energy economics and policy: An Energy Economist plays a crucial role in the area of energy- economy-environment. S/he provides authoritative and objective information on supply and use of energy and highlights the opportunities and risks in today’s energy world. Climate Change: Both industrialized and developing countries are increasingly focusing on the need for mitigation and adaptation strategies in relation to climate change. This course aims to present, discuss and analyze different perspectives on global environmental change in general, and climate change, in particular. It covers themes such as (1) the vulnerability of communities in different parts of the world to the combined impacts of environmental and non-environmental stress, (2) international, regional and national adaptation policies, (3) interlinkages between environmental change mitigation and adaptation.
