Program Structure

In the first year, students acquire a solid foundation in economic theory, analytical tools and methodologies useful to understand and manage internationalization and innovation processes. The courses touch on many different areas: economics and management, law, history, and statistics. The second year offers the chance to look more deeply into such areas as development economics, supply chain management or information systems governance. The majors offered in the Master of Science in Economics and Management of Innovation and Technology are:

 Green management and sustainability (major A);

 Technology and innovation management (major B);

 IT consulting (major C).  

Students choose a foreign language based on the graduate program instruction language and on their native language (which cannot be chosen as a foreign language). In classes taught in English, in order to get the language credits required for the degree, international students must study Italian plus another European language to be chosen from among French, German, Spanish, Portuguese or also English. Native Italian speakers must study two other European languages. Please note that the course requirements may be subject to change.
