International Economics and Finance
Program Director Paolo Colla
The program trains the future generation of economic and financial experts, who can adapt to an environment that is constantly subject to change, in order to perfect their inclination towards a global thinking perspective.
You will understand and analyze economic and financial phenomena in an international perspective and get a solid education built on rigorous quantitative and qualitative tools.
You can choose between two majors. In the Economics
major, a sound methodological background gives you the tools to understand a large set of issues: the effects of globalization, the role of central banks and monetary policy, competition policy, the functioning of the labor market, how to spur development of poor countries, the link between political institutions and economic outcomes.
In the Finance major, you are exposed to a large set of topics related to the functioning of modern financial systems: capital markets, financial intermediaries, financial contracts and instruments. Principles and applications of corporate finance techniques are all studied and discussed from a global perspective.
