This range of skills represents the ideal foundation for the development of professionals able to interpret the fast-changing economic environments of the 21st century.

This two-year degree is designed for students aiming at knowledge intensive careers in dynamic firms and corporations, consultancies and public organizations. It offers a solid foundation for those willing to pursue an academic career in the field of economics or other professional activities characterized by a strong research content.

The Faculty of the program has attained an outstanding international reputation for research excellence in many areas of economics. The Master degree (Laurea Magistrale) is jointly awarded by University of Pisa and Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies.
