Master in European Economic Governance (MEEG)

The Master in European Economic Governance (MEEG) aims to train full-fledged economists and experts in the field of European regulation and policy. Technical and analytical competencies acquired through the program are intended to form professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the European regulatory framework, who are adept at managing relations between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. [+]

Masters Programs in Economic Policy. The Master in European Economic Governance (MEEG) aims to train full-fledged economists and experts in the field of European regulation and policy. Technical and analytical competencies acquired through the program are intended to form professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the European regulatory framework, who are adept at managing relations between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. Almost all big and medium-sized firms operating within EMU member states entertain stable and continuous interactions with key European institutions. These interactions are often hindered by insufficient knowledge of the regulatory framework on the side of firms. On the flipside, European institutions often fail to factor in technical and country-specific instruments, causing them to inadequately assess the impact of their regulatory framework on the private sector. MEEG aims at training professionals who can see the complete picture and act as a vital link between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. After one year, MEEG students will earn an international master's degree (Master di II livello) in Economics. The master’s program is divided into two terms. The first term focuses on providing essential analytical and macroeconomic tools, as well as an overview of the historical development and legal evolution of the EU and EMU. In the second term, courses concentrate on the internal market of the EU and related key regulatory issues, such as the regulation of banking and capital markets, corporate governance, consumer protection, energy, and the environment. In order to get the most out of these courses,... [-]

The MEP is based on academic science and aimed to research perspective. The main tendency of scientific knowledge in XX-XXI centuries is the drift to complex systems and stochastic processes research. It affected research methods, results, and understanding of science destination per se. Economics as a social science reflects this tendency to the full extend. As a famous economist W. Baumol said, the most impressing results since early 1900th were achieved rather in empirical and applied researches than in theoretical novelty. However general scientific trends take specific dimensions for economic science in accordance to its subject and methods. Another famous economist – A. Marshall – has defined economics as dealing with ordinary operation of human society; it‘s studying individual and collective actions about making and using material basis of wealth. It means study of wealth from the one hand and study of a human – from the other. Nowadays the economists got into social phenomena deep enough to investigate such a complicated effects Marshall could not imagine. They study not only ordinary but nonordinary social phenomena; not only material but immaterial basis of wealth. The main purpose of economic research today is to find quantitative relationships for economic variables. Economics has very as powerful and diverse math toolset as to be a matter of research per se. Aim of the MEP “Quantitative Economics” is to train highly qualified analysts and researchers, who are ready to use advanced tools for theoretic and applied research both for economic science and analytics for...
