In 2014, the Faculty of Economics of UNINT added a new curriculum, “Luxury Goods, Made in Italy and Emerging Markets” to its Master’s Degree in Economics and International Management. The aim of this 2-year program is to train a new generation of managers operative in cutting edge sectors of Italian luxury products and services, giving specific support to processes of international development in emerging markets, where the largest demand for Italian products and brands is expected to come from in the near future.

Enjoy extra-curricular activities, through the Made in Italy Research Center (MADEINT), which gives opportunities for ad hoc thesis and research work. Connect to the world of enterprise, with internship opportunities with the principle players in the Italian fashion and luxury sector.. “Being surrounded by extraordinary expressions of beauty – such as nature, art and culture – it is almost natural for Italians to conceive work as a work of art. However, though it is necessary, a propensity to “create beauty” is not enough to rise up to the challenges of the world markets. To be competitive in these new markets nowadays, one needs management skills and above all to go beyond the idea that the uniqueness of the product is the only requirement for success. We must train a new generation of entrepreneurs and managers who are able not only to absorb the beauty in Italy in what they do, but also to understand the complex nature of the markets in which they operate.” Prof. Antonio Magliulo, Dean of the Faculty of Economics, UNINT Objectives, requirements and courses Length of program: 2 years ECTS (credits): 120 Location: Rome Objectives The curriculum in Luxury Goods, Made in Italy and Emerging Markets of the Master’s Degree in Economics and International Management arms students with knowledge in quantitative economics, business and law to become managers in companies dealing with luxury products (fashion, design, food, yachts, etc.) and services (hotels, retail, etc.) and working chiefly in emerging markets.

The consumers’ perception of Italy and Made in Italy in other countries, the ways in which Italian SMEs internationalize themselves, legislation to protect and promote national production, and analyses of the economic structure and trends of the sectors connected to Made in Italy are all areas that are thoroughly studied. The center’s research activities are very closely linked to the curriculum in “Luxury Goods, Made in Italy and Emerging Markets”, thanks to the seminars and guest lecturers from companies within the sector, and Master theses can be related to the research projects conducted in the center. “To support the strategic choices of companies dealing with Made in Italy products distributed internationally, we must develop our research activity to be able to fully understand the world in which Italy and Made in Italy are seen by international consumers. In many cases, consumers choosing products Made in Italy are not merely buying a product, they are buying access to the “Italian way of life”, that is a lifestyle which incorporates our esthetic vision, the atmosphere of Italian cities, the art of savoir vivre and the centuries-old culture that only our country can express. Working in the Made in Italy sector means understanding what our country means to the world and to know how to sell this image, and not just a simple product or brand.” Alessandro De Nisco, Scentific Director of MADEINT How to apply Foreign students and non-EU citizens regularly residing abroad who intend to apply for a Master’s Degree (2 years) must have completed at least 15 years of primary, secondary and higher education(12+3, 11+4, or 10+5).
