The course, designed to provide the qualification in Economics, Finance and Insurance after two years, represents the natural extension of the Bachelor’s Degree Program in Economics and Finance. The course includes a mono-curricular program in the first year (except for one subject), and two study paths (curricula) in the second year: Finance and Insurance (LM-16) and Economics (LM-56). The Finance and Insurance curriculum focuses on subjects belonging to financial, actuarial and statistical areas, while the Economics curriculum focuses on micro- and macro-economic issues concerning International Economics, as well as in Economics and Business Management.

  • the exploration and description of cases study;

The candidate must demonstrate to have acquired knowledge and skills required by the learning objectives of the course. The final assessment is based on the student's career, including the marks obtained in the exams, the mobility period abroad, as well as the performance shown during the oral discussion.
