The degree course in Economics aims to provide a university level education characterized by an overview of both macroeconomic phenomena and those related to the activities of individual operators (industries, financial and service companies, national and international public bodies).
To this end, the training course articulates a basic core, which favors basic and methodological teachings, with characterizing and specialized teachings that prepare graduates to: carry out quantitative support analysis of financial decisions; deal with the problems of private companies, public sector and international organizations; and assess the strategic choices of the company using in-depth knowledge of the economic and regulatory context, making use of modern statistics and information technology tools .
The training course is divided into six semesters.
In the first three semesters, in order to guarantee a solid basic and methodological interdisciplinary preparation, teaching is largely also common to the other three-year degree courses run by the Department, and includes economic, business, legal, and statistical/mathematical disciplines. Additionally, students are taught English (at an intermediate level) and a second language (at a basic level), as well as the learning of appropriate computer skills and quantitative techniques, especially of an econometric nature.
Starting from the fourth semester, on this solid preliminary educational basis , a range of curricular choices are available that provide appropriately selected courses in order to direct training towards more specific objectives and provide students with both theoretical and empirical tools to allow them to: interpret observed economic trends, make predictions about future trends, and critically examine possible behavioral strategies for companies, operators and institutions.
The course concludes with an internship or substitute activity, aimed at facilitating entry into the world of work, completing the curriculum of studies with participation in cycles of thematic seminars, or the completion of a personal experience research under the supervision of a teacher.
At the end of the course, graduates will be able to function as macro-economic analysts, socio-economic researchers or economists in industrial, financial and service companies, and in national and international public bodies. More specifically, the following job opportunities are available:
inclusion in industrial companies and suppliers of advanced services, utilities (telecommunications, energy, transport), antitrust authorities and regulatory authorities
inclusion in asset management companies, investment banks, SIMs and commercial bank studies offices
inclusion in multinational companies, in the public sector and in international organizations, and in institutions and companies involved in the globalization process
