EGM is a master course designed to meet the growing demand of those students who seek a degree that combines a solid training in Economics and Quantitative Techniques with a thorough knowledge of the European and the global economic and institutional context.
In the era of information, globalization and of deep institutional changes across Europe and major industrialized economies, students in Economics and Global Markets will learn how to assess the impacts of normative changes, regulations, and institutions that govern the functioning of product, labor and financial markets. The main objectives of the analysis are the performances of public and private enterprises, as well as the growth prospects of countries and organizations.
The course provides strong economic foundations, institutional knowledge as well as statistical and econometric tools necessary to perform market and sector analysis, impact evaluations and forecast scenarios also at the firm level. The course covers a wide range of economic fields, including international economics, industrial economics, labor economics, public policy, and macroeconomics.
Learning is envisaged in an international perspective; the environment is open to the contributions of international scholars and students; internships, stages and learning periods abroad are encouraged and assisted. These activities will allow the graduates to develop language, relational and decisional skills which will strengthen the specific economic competences and prepare for high-level professional careers.
Graduates are expected to successfully compete for jobs in firms and financial institutions, in consulting, in national and international public institutions and corporates. Graduates will aim to roles that require abilities to relate to international partners, to assess the validity of institutional and normative changes, of economic policies as well as of specific programs and investments, where autonomous judgment and decisional capacity are required.
