Masters in Environmental Economics in Milan in Italy. Course Objectives and Structure The Environmental and Food Economics Master’s program aims at providing students with advanced skills and a complete training in economics of the environment and of the agri-food sector. The program provides advanced expertise in economics and business disciplines, quantitative methods, and specific theoretical and applied knowledge in environmental and resources economics and in the economics and management of the agri-food system. The aim is to provide advanced knowledge and instruments for sustainable economic development, natural resources management (water, soil, energy), innovation in the agri-food sector, internationalisation of agri-food companies, food security and rural development, and policy analysis in related fields. In the first year, after key courses in mathematics and econometrics, the master proposes a balanced organization between common core teaching in the areas of business (Accounting, Environmental management), economics (Advanced microeconomics, Environmental economics) and agri-food economics (Food economics, International agri-food markets and policy). During the second year, students might choose to specialize further in one of the two fields: Environmental and Energy Economics or Economics and Management of the Agri-food System. Entry Requirements Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in economics, environmental science, agricultural and food science, or related fields. A minimum background in mathematics, economics and statistics is required. Candidates lacking this background are invited to follow crash courses that will be held starting from the last week of August. Fluency in spoken and written English is also required. All students who meet the above requirements are admitted to an interview. The interview, done remotely via electronic devices if necessary, is aimed at verifying the motivations of the candidates, the above-mentioned skills and the knowledge of English language. Career Prospects The Environment and Energy Economics curriculum is more oriented to the world of institutions (public and private), with job opportunities in national, EU, and international institutions, like energy authorities, OECD, European Commission, as well as public and private research organisations and research departments of large national and multinational companies. The Economics and Management of the Agrifood System curriculum is more oriented to private companies with job opportunities in agri-food firms (small and medium enterprises, multinationals, retailers) as well as in national, EU, and international institutions that carry out research on agrifood policies and rural development issues, like FAO, World Bank, OECD, and the European Commission.
