The Department of Economics at the University of Verona offers the Laurea Magistrale in Economics (MAGEC), a two-year Master of Science degree in Economics entirely taught in English and held in the heart of Verona, one of the most lively and visited cities of Italy.
The master’s program is characterized by a general-purpose and international flavor and covers such fields as economic theory and policy, business and management economics, fundamentals of European law and public economics, applied economics, and econometrics. The analysis of real-world problems is particularly stressed.
The program trains students in theoretical and applied economics through coursework, participation in seminars, and supervised research within a supportive environment. Activities are structured to stimulate the active and ongoing participation of the students, also through a direct and personalized relationship with the teaching body. We strongly encourage students to take part in class activities to benefit at the best from these opportunities.
MAGEC is devoted not only to students holding a bachelor’s degree in Economics. It is also a good match for students with a background in political sciences, engineering, mathematics, and statistics, willing to understand economic issues more in-depth.

MAGEC aims to provide students with the main theoretical and analytical tools of modern economics. MAGEC graduates are trained to critically interpret economic facts and work with real data so that they can hold top managerial or research-oriented positions in private and public organizations. Placement opportunities for MAGEC graduates include internationally oriented companies as well as national and international institutions.
MAGEC graduates master the main theoretical and analytical tools of modern economics and are able to critically interpret economic facts and independently work with real data. Their skill profile is especially suited for a managerial or research-oriented role in public or private organizations. The thorough training offered by the degree also allows MAGEC graduates to start a Ph.D. in Economics.
MAGEC students can visit foreign partner universities, and take exams abroad, as exchange students within the Erasmus program. Exams passed abroad will be converted in their Italian counterpart (“equipollenza”) and included in the students’ curricula at the University of Verona, with grades translated in the Italian grading scale.
MAGEC students can also benefit from dedicated Erasmus exchange agreements at Master level (in English) with Toulouse School of Economics, and University of Paris, Cergy-Pontoise.
Partner universities are from most European countries.
Students interested in an Erasmus exchange program with a foreign university are advised to start collecting the relevant information at least two months before the expected departure date.
With the support of the University of Verona program of internationalization, the MAGEC organizes every year a series of lectures, modules, and seminars held by invited speakers from International Institutions.
Lectures may take place within the curricula modules of MAGEC or can supplement them with additional credits and evaluation on selected subjects.
Additional elective modules can also be held by invited speakers.
A detailed list of the lectures is published during the semester on the event page.
MAGEC provides outstanding training to hold any position requiring the ability to understand the economic reality through the data, both in the private and the public sector. Placement opportunities for MAGEC graduates include, but are not limited to, global companies, international organizations, and government agencies. The rigorous and qualified teaching provided by MAGEC also offers solid grounds to undertake an academic career and start a Ph.D. program in Economics or related disciplines.
