Learning outcomes

The Bachelor's degree programme in Economics and Business aims to provide students with:

  • the necessary knowledge to understand and critically analyse economic phenomena at various levels (macroeconomic, market, enterprise);
  • useful competencies to deal with the economic problems faced by private companies and public bodies;
  • the knowledge required to successfully continue their studies, enrolling in a Master's degree or Professional Master's programme.

This Bachelor's degree programme provides students with a flexible and multi-purpose education, based on a grounding in economic, mathematical-statistical, business and legal issues, in order to have a general overview of economic phenomena.

Three different curricula are activated, two of which aim to analyse the different economic institutions. The third curriculum is focused on the tourist sector.

Internships and a final exam complete the course.

Curricula available

  • Economics and Business (Italian)
  • Economics, Markets and Finance (fully taught in English)
  • Economics of Tourism (Italian)

Occupational profiles

Students, according to the chosen curriculum, will be able to have multiple work possibilities in the industrial, services, finance, public administration or tourism (both public and private) sectors, thanks to their developed interdisciplinary ability (economic, legal, management and statistic-mathematical abilities). The continuation of studies could take place through Master’s Degree programmes in the Department of Economics and, in general, in all pertinent programmes in all Science of Economics or Economic-Business Sciences classes.

Examination assessment and graduation

The educational activities include classroom teaching, workshops and internships, in order to acquire wide-ranging skills that can be readily transferable into the world of work.
During the whole university career, the various skills acquired will be assessed through written and oral examinations.
The degree exam consists in writing a paper/thesis, that will be evaluated through methods similar to those of a written exam but not in the presence of the student. Should the supervisor deem the oral discussion of the thesis to be necessary, he/she may require it.
