Best Masters Programs in Economics in Europe 2017. 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... [-]
