International Politics and Government
Program Director Italo Colantone
This BSc is the first undergraduate program offered by Bocconi in the field of political science, with a small multicultural class group of selected, highly motivated students, taught by a dedicated international faculty.
You will learn how to interpret the evolution of social, economic and political systems in an international perspective, understand the mechanisms of decision-making within national and international institutions, and develop skills needed for implementing and evaluating policies.
You will acquire a toolbox of soft and hard skills through active learning from a wide array of subjects: politics, economics, management, law, history and quantitative methods. Great emphasis is placed on three moments of policy-making: designing public policies which are both economically efficient and politically sustainable; implementing public policies with an effective approach; and evaluating public policies using modern quantitative and qualitative techniques.
All students take part in the compulsory exchange, studying abroad at a partner university for one semester, and have the option of doing an internship.
The program aims to educate future national and international policy-makers, active players in international organizations and regulatory authorities, and managers in international private firms dealing with growing non-market environments.
