The Global Economics and Social Affairs Master (GESAM) is a one-year, first-level international Master degree programme organized by Ca’ Foscari University in Venice in collaboration with the International Labour Organization in Geneva.

The GESAM programme is taught by national and international lecturers in partnership with a wide range of Italian and foreign organizations and businesses working at a global level.


The course has been designed to respond to the need to interpret and govern economic and social phenomena in an era of globalization, especially in view of the current economic crisis. Indeed, it aims to reflect constantly evolving global challenges, so it is essential to establish high profile courses that will prepare our prospective future leaders in the global arena. To this end, the GESAM programme equips the student with the essential skills to identify and interpret global issues and their trends.

The GESAM programme provides the student with the chance to acquire in-depth knowledge drawn from a variety of disciplines: Economics (Political Economy; Micro- and Macro- Economics; International Economic Policies; International Management, Transnational Enterprise Management; International Finance; Corporate Social Responsibility, Corporate Ethics, etc.) and Legal disciplines (International Law; International and European Labour law; Labour law; Human Rights and Globalization, International Trade Law, etc.).

After GESAM, students can continue their studies by enrolling at the Second Cycle Degree Programme in International Relations, with the possibility of having recognized up to a maximum of 48 credits from those obtained during the master.
