Econometrics

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

Econometrics uses statistics, mathematics, and economic theory to help create understandable economic models. Those economic models are then used to make important economic policy decisions that can impact greater areas such as finance and labor markets.

Masters in Econometrics in Turin in Italy. The Master in Data Science for Complex Economic Systems is a one year full-time postgraduate program (II level Master Degree) taught in English and welcomes students from different disciplines (e.g. economics, physics, computer science and political science). The Master provides theoretical and methodological tools to understand and analyse complex systems which typically exhibit nonlinear behaviour resulting from the interaction of heterogeneous agents, hierarchy and continuous innovation. These properties require exploring new visions and expanding education beyond the frontier of traditional economic studies. In addition to the standard toolkit of economics and econometrics, the program takes a path-breaking perspective on advanced analytics, including big data, machine-learning network analysis, and agent-based simulation. The Master applies this pioneering approach to modelling, management, forecasting and policymaking in innovation, urban and consumption systems. The teaching method combines a thorough theoretical training with hands-on laboratories also in collaboration with top research centres and corporations. Our faculty is recruited from top schools (e.g. Écoles Normale Supérieure de Lyon, GREQUAM), on the international academic job market. The faculty also includes scholars from the University of Turin and the Collegio Carlo Alberto. In addition to their coursework, students interact with the faculty, fellows, and researchers of the University of Turin and of the Collegio. Master’s graduates can apply with full recognition of course credits for admission to the Vilfredo Pareto Doctorate in Economics (curriculum in Complexity) of the University of Turin. Candidates may apply for tuition fee waivers, research assistantships and scholarships.
