Top Masters in Economic Policy in Italy. Master in Economic Law The Master in Economic Law is a two-year program. The application procedure is exactly the same as for other Master programs at Sciences Po, with the identical tuition fees, deadline and scholarships. Teaching method Courses in the master in Economic Law are designed in a gradual fashion, so that students, even without any specific legal knowledge prior to admission, can become familiar with the required techniques. Thus, first semester classes will essentially cover core concepts, while later semesters will gradually evolve towards specialized and practical bodies of law. To implement this incremental approach, first year courses are taught by academics, while second year courses are mostly taught by professionals. The Sciences Po Law School curriculum provides students with a firm handle of fundamental concepts of law, a deep comprehension of their theoretical underpinnings, and a clear understanding of their practical implications. Therefore, courses mainly rely on a teaching method that gives priority to debates between professors and students. This itself requires that classes be prepared by each student in advance, based on distributed handouts. This way, students acquire a global understanding of Law, along with experience in exposing and discussing various points of view. Emphasis is also laid on readings, analysis of decisions, research on concrete cases (past or current), contracts elaboration, etc. Organization of courses The master in Economic Law is a very intensive formation. Curriculum is structured in the following way: During the first year fundamentals of law and economic law are taught to acquire or reinforce an indispensable legal culture; The second year is optional, students may take a gap year and become interns in law firms, companies or public services, considering that practical experience is absolutely necessary in law studies; In the final year, students have to choose their specialization among the six that have been created. Each of them is specific, oriented towards different technical profiles, for distinct professional aspirations and different ways of practicing law. [-]

Master in European Economic Governance (MEEG)

LUISS School of European Political Economy
Campus Full time October 2017 Italy Rome

The MEEG aims at training 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. [+]

Top Masters in Economic Policy in Italy. NEW - Master in European Economic Governance This master's program will complement SEP’s other activities, which are currently focused on the analysis of the economy and governance of both the European Union (EU) and the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), with an aim to develop policy suggestions. SEP's analytical research will enhance MEEG's theoretical, institutional and applied knowledge. After a one-year course, 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, students are expected to already possess basic analytical tools, and two preliminary courses will be offered to those who lack prior training in the field of economics. All candidates will be required to attend a course on the management of data processing programs (Math-Lab), in addition to a course on application sources and techniques for European Funds. Aim The MEEG aims at training 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. The MEEG aims at training professionals who can see the complete picture, and act as a vital link between national institutions, companies, and European institutions. Program The MEEG is a second level master's degree (Master di II livello). It is conducted in English, with a completion requirement of 60 credits. All applicants must possess a four or five-year undergraduate degree (or equivalent diploma), and will be selected based on their CV, and, in certain cases, an interview. The MEEG program includes two preliminary courses (for candidates who require basic technical tools), twelve main courses, two instrumental courses (Math-Lab and Application for European Funds), and three optional courses. Each of the preliminary courses lasts 12 hours and grants no credit. Each of the main and instrumental courses lasts 20 hours (including possible course-specific seminars) and grants 3 credits; 3 credits are provided by each of the optional courses (see below). A master's thesis provides 6 credits, and additional credits derive from activities in common with other master's programs, or self-directed activities approved by the teaching board. The MEEG intends to assist students with solid academic track records in finding internship opportunities at economic and financial institutions, both national and European. Instruction is divided into a preparatory phase, if necessary, and two full academic terms. Students who need to acquire basic technical tools for advancing through the program must take two preliminary courses in September, neither of which provide credits toward graduation. The first academic term spans October-December, during which students must complete between 7-8 courses (21-24 credits). The second term spans March-May, and consists of the remaining 7-8 courses (21-24credits), along with additional seminars as required. For all courses, attendance is compulsory. Lectures are usually held three days per week. A fourth day is reserved for general conferences and seminars, as well as internal course-specific events. A fifth day is dedicated to tutoring and discussion sessions, as well as individual study. The period from June to September is devoted to preparing the master's thesis and/or completing a possible internship. The program's structure allows for some flexibility in order to accommodate individual interests. Motivated candidates may submit proposals for self-directed study to the teaching board, with the understanding that refusal is a possibility. To earn the master's degree, candidates must pass a written exam at the end of each completed course write, and present a thesis to the teaching board, and satisfy the requirement for self-directed study. Program MEEG comprises the following courses: (i) two preliminary courses (to be taken in September) dealing with mathematical and statistical applications of economic theory and policy; (ii) two main courses on European macroeconomic theory and policy; (iii) six main courses on European regulation; (iv) one main course on European and comparative law; (v) one main course on European economic history; (vi) one main course on European economic institutions; (vii) one main course on European political institutions; (viii) two instrumental courses; (ix) two elective courses or group of courses; (x) seminars. In general (see below for exceptions), a completed program of study will include the twelve main courses, two instrumental courses, two elective courses, and additional seminars. Exceptions Candidates who do not have sufficient quantitative skill at the time of enrollment will be required to complete two additional preliminary courses. Candidates who possess an undergraduate degree lacking in economic training can substitute the two preliminary courses under (i) with two basic courses in Maths and Statistics offered by LUISS University. Additionally, they will be requested to replace the three optional courses under (ix) with three basic courses on microeconomics, macroeconomics and economic policy, offered by other degree programs at LUISS University. To supplement the above-mentioned courses, the master's program will include: (i) seminars held by key European representatives; (ii) professional training seminars, possibly in common with other master's programs; and (iii) seminars in which candidates will present their theses. Near the end of the instruction period, the MEEG will assist in the process of finding internship opportunities. These may be found at economic and financial institutions (both national and European), as well as at private firms. Curriculum SEP Senior Researchers, SEP Senior Fellows, and SEP Friends constitute the core of the MEEG's academic staff. This group cooperates with representatives from EU political and juridical institutions, notably, key personages already participating in other SEP and LUISS School of Government (SoG) activities. The MEEG provides candidates with flexibility in their academic endeavors, allowing them to tailor their path of study to their professional backgrounds, interests, and career preferences. The list of courses below shows the variety of options available, whether they be courses belonging to other master's programs in SEP and SoG, or those belonging to other first and second degree master's programs at LUISS University. Teaching staff will guide and approve each study plan. All candidates will have access to a dedicated tutor. Preliminary Courses 1. Introduction to Quantitative Economic Methods 2.

In the academic year 2015-2016, one course is available as an elective directly through the MEEG program: 1. The European Welfare System (Term 2) A list of other available electives will be provided to candidates prior to the beginning of each term. Before each term, students will receive a file for each of the basic courses provided, with the curriculum, relevant references, and study material. Candidates are encouraged to set up their thesis as a research paper fit for publication. Their progress will be supervised by a member of the teaching staff or a senior researcher chosen by the teaching staff. Thanks to the structure outlined above, the MEEG program provides high-level training to assist candidates in reaching their professional goals.

Private sector interaction with European institutions is often based on insu cient knowledge of regulatory framework. On the ipside, European institutions often do not adequately assess the impact of regulation on productivity, especially through the lens of technical and country- speci c instruments. The MEEG program aims at training professionals who can play these missing roles, both on the side of national institutions and companies, as well as that of European institutions. INTERNSHIP The MEEG program intends to assist its graduates' search for internship opportunities, at national and European economic and nancial institutions. The LUISS network and its connections with national and European institutions, as well as the business world, increase internship opportunities. LUISS NETWORK What distinguishes LUISS is its privileged relationship with the business world. Over 200 companies, multinationals, and public and private institutions collaborate with the university, each offering real opportunities to enter the business world. LUISS provides students with multiple opportunities to meet and learn from business professionals. Its connections with the institutional and European network enhances the career prospects of its graduates.
