The Master in Economics aims to endow its students with advanced training in modern economic theory and methods. The courses are taught in English by our faculty recruited from top schools on the international academic job market. In addition to their coursework, master's students interact with the faculty, fellows, and researchers of the Collegio. They have access to the Collegio's facilities and scientific activities, such as seminars, lectures, and doctoral courses. Upon successfully finishing the program the students will be awarded the Master of Arts degree in Economics from the Collegio Carlo Alberto.
