M.A. programme hosted in the Department of Statistics, with a special focus on economic courses taught with a pluralistic approach, such as Gender Economics, International Monetary Economics, Development finance and others.
How does the programme provide content to ensure students achieve an understanding of a reasonably diverse set of perspectives on understanding economies?
Different perspectives are discussed in detail, starting from the Classical approach. Theoretical discussions are coupled with a strong methodological approach.
How does the programme ensure students understand the interaction between economic and ecological systems?
It does not.
How does the programme ensure students understand how to critically explore real-world evidence, both qualitative and quantitative?
By using statistical methods in the context of a pluralistic discussion of the real-world phenomena.
What pedagogical approaches does the programme use to ensure that students examine the historical context, assumptions and values in all economic thinking?
Applied economic courses are matched with a course of Economic History and a set of seminars on gender economics.
How does the department ensure that the teaching culture and capacity to deliver economic pluralism are continually improving?
This is mainly left to the efforts of the economists working in the departments: Marcella Corsi, Carlo D'Ippoliti, Nerio Naldi, Giulia Zacchia and Anna Conte.
