Study Plan

During the first year, you will be given training in several basic subjects in order to understand how companies, organizations and the economic system work, both at an overall level and at the level of the individual behavior of firms and consumers. You will be provided with a wide set of quantitative tools to understand economic models and will study the fundamentals of logic in order to think consistently and analytically.

In the second year, you will learn to understand how individuals make economic decisions, how companies compete in markets, how and why markets feature imperfections and how to correct them via public policies. You will deepen your understanding of macroeconomic issues, study the basis of cognitive sciences, and receive an overview of civil law in both a domestic and a broader international context.     

In the last year, you will complete your path with courses that will help you understand micro-and macro-organizational behavior, social norms and culture, including through applications and implementation with data.  You will also be able to further personalize your study plan, with electives, an internship or a study program abroad and your choice of subject for your final report.
