The program follows rigorous international standards. Classes are small, taught by internationally recognized professors and industry experts, and focused on advanced economic knowledge and applied techniques. The program is suited to students with both applied interests and more research-oriented profiles.

You will need to take the mandatory courses, as well as a major of your choice. We offer three applied majors (Macroeconomic Policy, Public Policy and Regulation, and Finance and Banking) and one more theoretical major (General Economics). At the same time, you will be prepared for the workplace with Leadership Lab activities and internship opportunities. Finally, you will work on your thesis project and be ready to launch your professional career. The program offers opportunities for an immersion in top economic institutions, in either internships or thesis development.

The program usually lasts three semesters, with the first two devoted to coursework (60 ECTS) and the third to the development of a master thesis (30 ECTS). For students wishing to do an internship or an exchange semester, they should do so in their third semester, and spend a fourth semester on their thesis.

The MSc in Economics also gives you also the opportunity to pursue a Double Degree or a Joint Degree at a top international school, or an exchange semester.


1st cycle degree in Economics, Business/Management or other quantitative discipline


Ideally candidates should have an undergraduate degree in Economics, including mathematical and statistical training, as well as intermediate microeconomics.

Outstanding candidates from other quantitative areas will also be considered, but may be asked to do some background study before joining the program (for the major in Finance and Banking only candidates with an Economics background will be considered).


The MSc in Economics provides a high quality graduate education in economics, training students in rigorous methods of analysis and preparing them for successful careers in banking, consultancy, international organizations or academia. Students can also pursue a Double or a Joint Degree.
