Masters in Econometrics. The MEP is based on academic science and aimed to research perspective. The main tendency of scientific knowledge in XX-XXI centuries is the drift to complex systems and stochastic processes research. It affected research methods, results, and understanding of science destination per se. Economics as a social science reflects this tendency to the full extend. As a famous economist W. Baumol said, the most impressing results since early 1900th were achieved rather in empirical and applied researches than in theoretical novelty. However general scientific trends take specific dimensions for economic science in accordance to its subject and methods. Another famous economist – A. Marshall – has defined economics as dealing with ordinary operation of human society; it‘s studying individual and collective actions about making and using material basis of wealth. It means study of wealth from the one hand and study of a human – from the other. Nowadays the economists got into social phenomena deep enough to investigate such a complicated effects Marshall could not imagine. They study not only ordinary but nonordinary social phenomena; not only material but immaterial basis of wealth. The main purpose of economic research today is to find quantitative relationships for economic variables. Economics has very as powerful and diverse math toolset as to be a matter of research per se. Aim of the MEP “Quantitative Economics” is to train highly qualified analysts and researchers, who are ready to use advanced tools for theoretic and applied research both for economic science... [-]

Masters in Econometrics. The Master in Data Science for Complex Economic Systems is a one year full-time postgraduate program (II level Master Degree) taught in English and welcomes students from different disciplines (e.g. economics, physics, computer science and political science). The Master provides theoretical and methodological tools to understand and analyse complex systems which typically exhibit nonlinear behaviour resulting from the interaction of heterogeneous agents, hierarchy and continuous innovation. These properties require exploring new visions and expanding education beyond the frontier of traditional economic studies. In addition to the standard toolkit of economics and econometrics, the program takes a path-breaking perspective on advanced analytics, including big data, machine-learning network analysis, and agent-based simulation. The Master applies this pioneering approach to modelling, management, forecasting and policymaking in innovation, urban and consumption systems. The teaching method combines a thorough theoretical training with hands-on laboratories also in collaboration with top research centres and corporations. Our faculty is recruited from top schools (e.g. Écoles Normale Supérieure de Lyon, GREQUAM), on the international academic job market. The faculty also includes scholars from the University of Turin and the Collegio Carlo Alberto. In addition to their coursework, students interact with the faculty, fellows, and researchers of the University of Turin and of the Collegio. Master’s graduates can apply with full recognition of course credits for admission to the Vilfredo Pareto Doctorate in Economics (curriculum in Complexity) of the University of Turin. Candidates may apply for tuition fee waivers, research assistantships and scholarships. Introductory Courses Introductory Statistics... [-]
