Course content

The MSc in Economics is a two year graduate programme that aims to provide an advanced level of education in economics.

The program is built on four core courses:

  • mathematics;
  • microeconomics;
  • macroeconomics;
  • and econometrics

This is so that students acquire advanced tools for economic analysis. The modules also offer a wide range of specialized topics in most fields of modern economics. The programme is designed to give our students the ability to approach a wide variety of economic and social issues.

Moreover, the cultural tradition of the Department of Economics in Siena has always favoured a pluralistic approach to the analysis of economic problems, in the belief that exposure to competing theoretical perspectives facilitates understanding of economic phenomena.

In the same spirit, Siena has always encouraged "contamination" of the economic approach with other disciplines, such as other social sciences, history, law, as well as biology, psychology, etc.
