The Master in International Economics is a one-year programme designed for students who wish to pursue analytical graduate training for careers in academia, business, banking, governments and consulting firms. The master programme is hosted by the University of Rome "Tor Vergata", Italy. The programme is entirely taught in English. The level of training provided is equivalent to the first year of the Ph. D. programme.
Content of the programme
- First semester - review and enhancement of key concepts in microeconomics, macroeconomics, statistics, and econometrics.
Second semester - advanced courses in international economics, covering the most recent developments in the theory and policy
of trade, growth, development economics, and in international
money and finance.
- Running events - Weekly seminars where Tor Vergata's faculty, invited international scholars, and current Ph.D. students present their latest research.
- The Master of International Economics has an excellent placement record - all past students have found paid full-time positions immediately after graduating (last year's students now work for Ernst&Young, Accenture, Unicredit, Pioneer Investment), or scholarship coverage for Ph. D. programmes.
- Organized placement opportunities - at the end of the course, students will have access to internship opportunities in organizations and institutions based in Italy.
