Built on the Economics major of the LUISS Master’s degree program in Economics and Finance and HSE’s MA Program in Applied Economics and Mathematical Methods, the program provides advanced, strongly quantitative training in the core areas of macro, microeconomics and econometrics.
Students will spend their first year at LUISS, acquiring essential tools such as mathematical methods and statistics and econometric theory. During both years, they will have the opportunity to work alongside leading researchers, to develop the required skills to become professional economists and analysts or to conduct further academic research in the field as Ph.D. students.
The researchers from HSE’s Center for Market Studies and Spatial Economics, as well as St. Petersburg Institute for Economics and Mathematics, Russian Academy of Sciences, are directly involved in the learning process during the second year, spent in St. Petersburg.
The program is structured as follows:
- the first year is carried out at LUISS (Rome)
- the second year is carried out at HSE (St. Petersburg)
