The Master in Economics and Finance is a graduate program that allows students to complete their training in economics providing them with a thorough understanding of the role and working of the economic and financial markets and institutions in modern economies.
The Master is a full-time, intensive course, with a maximum enrollment of 20 students. The Master offers courses taught in English and it is accessible to students of all countries. The degree, issued by Università Cattolica, is recognized as a second level Master’s degree by the Italian Government.
The Master will allow students to acquire the knowledge and research experience needed in order to pursue further studies with a Ph.D. in Economics, allowing students to integrate their academic experience with professional skills of theoretical and practical relevance.
Graduate students are invited to take part in the seminar series, organized by the Department of Economics and Finance on a weekly basis.
During the past two years, the seminars have featured scholars from top European and US institutions, such as Northwestern University, UCLA, Columbia University, Harvard Business School, London School of Economics, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, European University Institute, University of Zurich, Goethe University Frankfurt, European Central Bank. Our research environment also benefits from many initiatives, such as an “Annual Lecture” in Political Economy, which, in recent years, has been delivered by prominent academics such as James Robinson (Harvard University), Peter Howitt (Brown University), Howard Rosenthal (Princeton University), and Daron Acemoglu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology - MIT).
