Learning outcomes and career opportunities

 

 

Curriculum in Economics

The curriculum in Economics equips students with the advanced methods and skills necessary to conduct both theoretical and applied research in economics and to evaluate and formulate policies. This curriculum provides an ideal background for pursuing a PhD programme (in Economics and related topics) at leading universities around the world or for work as a professional economist in a wide range of positions in private economic consultancy agencies, international banking, business, finance, national and international organisations and governments.

Curriculum in Development Economics

The curriculum in Development Economics can be tailored to a quantitative analysis for developing economies, which equips students with advanced quantitative methods and skills for studying economic development phenomena. It can also be more oriented towards Development Studies, with a less technical and more interdisciplinary approach. This curriculum provides an ideal background for pursuing a PhD programme (in Development Economics and related topics) at leading universities around the world or for work as a professional development economist in national and international agencies, civil service appointments, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and private sector companies with interests in developing countries.

Double Degree with the MA in Development Economics of the University of Göttingen

Students of the Curriculum in Development Economics have the opportunity to enter the Double Degree program established with the MA in Development Economics of the University of Goettingen.
UNIFI students will spend their 1st year at the University of Florence and their 2nd year at the University of Goettingen, obtaining both degrees.

 

Admission requirements

Applicants should have a final undergraduate grade with pass proceed (i.e. permit to proceed to graduate studies). Applicants who graduated in Italy should have a final grade of at least 99/110 (for foreign students: if the pass proceed is not indicated it will be calculated). Students not fulfilling this requirement can apply but may be asked for an interview (admission decisions are taken by the Admission Committee of the MSc). A reference letter from a university professor is strongly recommended. 

The current academic entry requirements from a BA degree course are:

 - Economics 18 credits

Statistics 6 credits

- Mathematics 6 credits

 - a very good working knowledge (written and oral) of the English Language is essential (at least a B2 level of the Common European Framework i.e. equivalent to a Cambridge First Certificate).

Students who do not meet these academic requirements (in terms of credits), need to pass the required exams before being formally admitted. The “missing” credits can be taken at the University of Florence or in the University of origin of the potential candidates. To satisfy the English language proficiency requirements students need to satisfy one of the following requirements:

    • give evidence that their undergraduate degree course was taught entirely in English
    • certify their knowledge at a European B2 level (Cambridge First certificate, TOEFL, IELTS etc.)
    • pass the B2 English language test organised by Dr. Ilona V. Cziraky (ilona.cziraky@unifi.it), who is in charge of the degree course’s language admission test.
