What is a Minor

A Minor is a taught study course composed of three modules of 6 ECTS each, that allow you to widen your studies with a glimpse at subjects that fall outside of your principal subject.
Passing the three exams required by the Minor, you will get a certification of the course you attended.

Objectives and contents

The Minor aims to provide students outside of the economic field with the basic principles for an understanding of some fundamental economic mechanisms, and on the other hand, with basic understanding both of the most common bank and financial products and of the relative tools for protecting the clients (savers, borrowers, investors, insurers) in this way to facilitate the choice to save and/or invest with the greatest possible awareness. In order that the participants are able to benefit the most from information, some lessons will be divided into sections of 10 hours each.

This Minor is taught in Italian.


The minor is aimed at Bachelor’s degree students at the university. Students studying in the field of economics cannot take this Minor.
