The Master in Economics, a one-year graduate programme (Level II Master) entirely taught in English, designed to provide the analytical and quantitative skills that are needed for a successful career as a professional economist in business and government.
The programme is also designed to provide intensive training to students who want to pursue a PhD in Economics, Econometrics or Finance in a leading research university. The Master in Economics, is structured in three terms: Fall (September-January), Spring (February-June) and Summer (July-September).
In the Fall Term students take the review courses in Mathematics, Probability and Statistics, and the core courses in Econometrics, Microeconomics and Statistical Computing. In the Spring Term students select courses from three areas of specialization: Finance, Economics, Quantitative Methods. The Summer Term consists of an internship or a project, with a final report due by the end of September. Highlights from this year specialized teaching units:
- Bayesian Econometrics (Prof. Gary Koop, University of University of Strathclyde, UK)
- Time Series Models (Prof. Andrew C. Harvey, University of Cambridge, UK)
- Bayesian Microeconometrics (Prof. Melvin Weeks, University of Cambridge, UK)
The Master has an excellent track-record in placing students in both academic and non-academic institutions. In the last three years, about 60% of our students have been successfully enrolled in PhD programs in top Universities in Europe and the USA, while 40% have found prestigious jobs in non-academic institutions in Italy or abroad.
The Director of the Master in Economics is Professor Tommaso Proietti.
