Economics - Scienze economiche

Course description

The master program in Economics-Scienze economiche is divided into two curricula: “Economics” and “Sustainable Development”. The first one permits students to obtain a double degree from the Universities of Udine and Graz. The courses offered in the two curricula are taught in English.

The program of the curriculum in Sustainable Development is entirely held in Udine, while students enrolled in the curriculum in Economics can either follow the entire program in Udine or spend a semester at the Department of Economics of the University of Graz, achieving there at least 30 ECTS, in order to obtain the double degree. Students who plan to attend courses in Graz can apply for grants reserved to them and assigned according to the rules established by a specific announcement of selection.
Learning objectives
The master program in Economics-Scienze Economiche follows the learning objectives set by the Italian Ministry of Education (degree class L-56) and it gives an education comparable to other international Masters in Economics. This allows students to access PhD courses both in Italy and abroad. The master program provides students with a theoretical background and an empirical training in economics, at an advanced level. It ensures that students gain an education with solid foundation in economic theory, applied economics, and acquire a good knowledge on policy issues. Consistently with these objectives, a supporting knowledge of mathematical and statistical methods of analysis is provided. Furthermore, a proper training in related fields of business and law is assured, in order to guarantee a wide variety of career and job opportunities. In a rapidly changing economic environment, it is important for both public institutions and private companies to hire people who are flexible and capable to analyse the markets and the economic system thanks to the tools learned during the program. The curriculum in Economics provides a general formation in the fields listed above. The curriculum in Sustainable Development includes a wide variety of advanced courses aiming at developing a deep understanding of each dimension of sustainability, with a focus on market-based tools and public policies, which can be adopted to facilitate the ecological transition path.
Professional opportunities
The master degree gives students a strong flexibility when accessing the job market. A graduate student in Economics- economiche is prepared for specialised and managerial activities both in the public and private sector: they can fill positions, for instance, in qualified research centres, authorities, financial institutions, banks, consulting firms, and other kinds of firms. The knowledge offered by the program also allows students to continue their education to PhD level.
