Double Degree

The Master in Economics and Political Science aims at providing its students with advanced training in both economics and political science. Such training should be comparable to that offered by any leading international master’s programme in each of the two disciplines. Specifically, the programme aims at forming professional economists and political scientists. The graduates will not only be endowed with high-level analytical and operational skills, but they will also have an open and critical vision of economic, political and social issues, and a cultural depth that could hardly be achieved by attending a programme centred only on one of the two disciplines.

The broadness of the skills provided is testified by the wide range of occupations that EPS graduates have. Former EPS graduates have found employment in leading firms in the banking, insurance and business services sectors, among the others, in international organizations, or have entered well reputed PhD programmes in Italy or abroad (see the website for more detailed information).

The Master in Economics and Political Science degree is designed to train students in advanced methodologies, analytical tools and quantitative and qualitative techniques used in all fields of economics and political science.

Economics and Political Science graduates will be ready to undertake a wide array of career paths in multinational companies, political institutions, public organizations, and other professions demanding high intellectual skills, robust technical competencies and versatile knowledge. They will also be well prepared to engage in further academic studies in top PhD programmes.

The degree in Economics and Political Science offers the opportunity to study at several European universities, where students will be able to attend lectures and obtain credits for their degree.

Our partners are selected among the most prestigious academic institutions in France (SciencesPo), Germany (University of Mannheim), Norway (University of Oslo), and other European countries. A bilateral agreement with the Catholic University of Louvain (Belgium) allows a limited number of students to obtain a double degree in Sciences Economique and Economics and Political Science issued by both institutions. Moreover, an exchange with the HSBC Business School, Peking University Shenzhen (China), has been running since 2014. Finally, a new Exchange program with Plekhanov Russian University of Economics (Moscow, Russian Federation) has been activated in the a.y. 2016-17. The modules offered by our partners include core subjects and disciplines of Economics and Political Science such as Industrial Organization, Welfare Economics, European Law, Comparative and International Politics. The choice of modules is made by students before their departure in collaboration with the programme coordinator; the credits are recognized officially and included in the curriculum at the end of the exchange period.

The degree in Economics and Political Science also offers the opportunity to participate in internship programmes at institutions such as the ITUC - International Trade Union Confederation, OSE - Observatoire Social Européen, ETUI - European Trade Union Institute, EAPN - European Anti-Poverty Networks of Brussels and the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong and Macao. Internships may also earn students credits to be included in their curriculum.
