The educational programme of the 2nd cycle Degree Course in Economics and Finance aims at providing students with an advanced knowledge of economic and financial disciplines, completing and refining the knowledge acquired in the curricular courses of class 33 and raising the quality standards to levels close to those achievable in other European Union countries. This objective is achieved through the advanced study, during the first course year, of economic analysis and policy, of the business sciences most connected to economic science, with the addition of advanced legal disciplines and mathematical-statistical disciplines and further knowledge of the English language. The course may subsequently be articulated with specific teachings dedicated to economic and financial analysis and the evaluation of public policies. Further classes are related to the study of the regional economic context.
