This course is for you if: You would like to study in a globalized environment alongside students who come from all over the world; you would like opportunities to study abroad both through bilateral agreements and double degrees; you would like to broaden your linguistic and intercultural abilities to work in an international setting, whether based in Italy or abroad; you wish to focus on international aspects of Economics; you would like to do a Master’s degree in Economics though coming from another 3-year degree course; you are looking for a course with a pragmatic approach, where theory and practice always go hand-in-hand; you would like to find yourself within a hard-working but friendly environment, where personal attention is given to students but hardwork and creativity are expected.
