The programme in a nutshell
The study of economic phenomena from a global perspective
The programme aims to explore issues that affect the global economy: the development of markets, their relations with the world of business and institutions. After a common two-year period with economic, legal and mathematical-statistical teaching, the programmesplits into three profiles: 'Finance and Global Markets', 'Markets, Enterprises and Labour', 'Quantitative methods for economic sciences'.
In addition to lectures to acquire the basics and tools necessary for professional integration, the Faculty organises meetings and seminars to supplement personal training.
What next? The figure of the applied economist
Employment opportunities are manifold in the industrial, service and public administration sectors in various roles: business economist, international market analyst, money market economist, financial trader on the stock exchange or in other economic institutions.
The decision to enrol in Economics, Organisations and Markets at the Milan campus stems from an interest in understanding and interpreting global economic phenomena, such as the performance and functioning of markets in relation to businesses and institutions. The aim of the course is to provide students with the main tools needed to interpret economic phenomena through knowledge of theories, quantitative analysis techniques and the most up-to-date institutional references. In particular, the aim is to train a professional figure able: to know the ways in which enterprises and markets operate, through the analysis of the interactions between the decisions taken by individual enterprises and the functioning of the market in which they operate; to make rational decisions on behalf of enterprises in different economic contexts, such as production sectors, international markets, financial markets and local systems; to analyse economic problems from an interdisciplinary perspective through the acquisition of economic, management, legal, statistical-mathematical, historical and socio-psychological skills; to use two foreign languages effectively, including English (compulsory) and one of French, German and Spanish; to deal with and solve information management problems through the use of computer and telematic tools. The course provides the theoretical and analytical tools to understand the functioning of markets, enterprises and financial institutions, the role of economic policy and its influence on the choices of operators and systems.
