The course in brief


The Bachelor of Science in Economics and Business (now Economics and Financial Science) degree program provides a multidisciplinary education centered on knowledge of economic and financial systems and the institutions that operate within them.
The course is divided into two curricula: the general economic curriculum, in which special attention is paid to national and international economics, environmental, health and labor; and the financial economic curriculum, oriented toward the world of finance and its players: intermediaries, financial market operators and sector supervisory bodies.

Learning by doing

In-company training placements in Italy and abroad are provided. Teaching is complemented by workshops and classroom testimonials by figures from the world of business and finance. Numerous academic cooperation agreements with foreign universities are active for the purpose of study or internship.

The Bachelor's degree program in Economics and Business trains professionals capable of understanding this complexity, through the study of the dynamics and actors of the economic and financial system and its components: markets, intermediaries and financial instruments.

The training course is divided into:

  • a first core of basic teachings (the same for all bachelor's degree programs in the Department of Economics), intended to provide a solid preparation in four disciplinary areas: economics, business, quantitative and law
  • a second core of characterizing and specialized teachings, to make people reach an adequate level of specialization to propose themselves in the world of work in a qualified way or to continue their studies. The teachings are divided into two curricula: the general economic curriculum and thefinancial economic curriculum

Much emphasis is placed on languages, with the compulsory teaching of English and the possibility of deepening other foreign languages: French, German, Spanish and Chinese culture.

A compulsory teaching of computer science, a range of other professionalizing activities, company internships, and the opportunity to participate in the Erasmus+ program complete the course.

Thanks to the solid preparation provided and the mastery of the tools of economic and financial analysis, at the end of the course you will be able to seize the best opportunities for your future.
