International Economics and Finance
Program Director Paolo Colla
This program teaches you to understand and analyze economics and ﬁnancial phenomena in an international perspective. You will get a solid education built on rigorous quantitative and qualitative tools, preparing you to work in a wide range of workplace settings.
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.
The program trains the future generation of economic
and financial experts, using a global perspective to adapt to a constantly changing environment.
