NOTE that from academic year 2020-21 the course of studies of Economics will be enriched with additional modules on applied economics and data analysis. During the first year an additional compulsory module on “Data management for business and economics” 6 ECTS will be scheduled in the first semester, while in the second semester of the second year additional optional modules on “Time series and forecasting” 9ECTS and “Machine learning for economics” 6 ECTS will be provided. The new denomination of the course will be “Economics and Data Analysis“.

Every year, MAGEC also organizes short modules on specific advanced topics held by foreign university professors. The modules are optional; MAGEC students may choose to attend one or more of them and, in case they pass the examinations, they gain CFU credits on their curricula.

Attendance to teaching activities is strongly encouraged.
Teaching material for each module is available to registered students at

Exams are graded according to a scale ranging from 0 to 30, with 18 as pass mark. A “cum laude” may be added to the highest grade (“30 e lode”) as a mention of special distinction.

Students must earn 120 ECTS credits to meet the program requirements and gain the degree:

  • 84 credits from the required modules (see table above)
  • 18 credits from elective modules
  • 3 credits from internships
  • 15 credits from dissertation writing

Internships can be taken:

  • in a private company, chosen by the student independently or together with the stage office, under the approval of an academic staff member, or
  • at the university’s Interdepartmental Centre of Economic Documentation (CIDE). In this case students learn how to use professional software packages for data management and analysis.

The degree is assigned after public defense in front of a board of examiners of a written dissertation, developed under the supervision of an academic staff member (advisor, or “relatore” in Italian), on one of the topics learnt in the master’s program.

The master’s final mark ranges on a 110-point scale, and is the sum of:

  • the average of the marks gained in the individual modules, weighted by their CFUs, converted in a 110-point scale and rounded
  • the mark of the dissertation, ranging between 0 and 7, determined by the board of examiners after public discussion

Students who obtain full marks may also be awarded summa cum laude (“110 e lode”), at the discretion of the board of examiners.
