The primary objective of the master’s degree in Business Economics is to help students acquire practical and methodological skills relevant to the fields of administration and finance, governance, and planning, audit and assessment of private and public companies. This master’s degree will adopt a multidisciplinary approach as well as providing a specialised overview of the aforementioned themes within a business context. These specialised notions will be taught by prioritising business related subjects (with particular attention for the academic field of Business Economics, although other fields like The Economics of Financial Intermediaries will be studied) and will therefore constitute the course’s guiding force. Such notions relate specifically to the various roles within a company (administration and finance, planning and audit, leadership, etc.), as well as to the kinds of procedures and activities that take place within a company (surveillance, assessment, revision, etc.); individual courses will also focus on the various sectors within which companies operate (manufacturing, distribution, financial and banking services, public sector, etc.). A multidisciplinary approach will be guaranteed by the presence of carefully chosen subjects in the areas of statistical mathematics, law and economics. The combination of different study disciplines and teaching methods will help students to acquire the skills necessary to apply an integrated problem-solving approach in business, thus performing a role appropriate to the requirements of a managerial position.
The contents of this degree course will take into account the latest international developments (particularly in the European Community) affecting the subjects in question.
