Students must acquire 60 ECTS to complete the program.

After, preliminary courses in Math, Statistics, and English, in the first two terms, a well-balanced study track builds strong quantitative skills coupled with a sound knowledge of advanced economics and finance.

The program is organized in two terms. The first term is dedicated to the foundations of economics, finance, and quantitative methods(e.g., business cycle theories, basic econometrics, and asset theory). The second term focuses on more applied issues in economics and finance (e.g., applications in financial econometrics, evaluation of the financial and credit risk, asset pricing, banking and financial – market regulation).

At the end of the Master, students are requested to spend some time in a stage outside the university. The stage at the end of the study program represents a unique opportunity to get in touch with the financial sector and public institutions and to translate into practice the study program insights.
