About the programme

The MSc in Economics taught at the University of Siena is designed to give students the ability to approach a variety of economic and social issues. Moreover, the cultural tradition of the Department of Economics and Statistics of the University of Siena has always encouraged 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 favoured “contamination” of the economic approach with other disciplines, such as other social sciences, history, law, as well as biology, psychology, etc.

The programme offers many opportunities to spend periods in other European universities through the Erasmus Programme. Currently, the course gives access to a double degree programme with the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), and other programmes are in the process of being finalised.

The MSc programme profits from the international research environment provided by the Department of Economics and Statistics, with its network of relations with prominent international institutions, resulting in frequent visits by both scholars and researchers. Moreover, the Department has been running a PhD programme in Economics since the early 1980s. The MSc course benefits from the competencies gained through our PhD programme, which has attracted students from all over the world, creating a vibrant community of international graduate students.

Career Prospects

A student who is awarded the MSc in Economics should have the flexibility and skills that are necessary to begin a career in academic institutions, research centres, central banks, and national or international organizations, but is well equipped also for more operative jobs in the public or private sector, where both a broad view and excellent problem solving skills are most required.

Our courses have a well established reputation in Italy and abroad. Many of our former students have continued their graduate studies in leading academic institutions and gained positions at universities, in research departments, and in private companies.
