Course overview

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.
