The MSc in Economics and Development at University of Florence offers lessons and research projects in the heart of Florence. With its interdisciplinary approach to the teaching of economics and an excellent student to staff ratio, this MSc offers two curricula which prepare  students for different careers.


The curriculum in Development Economics delivered by University of Florence can be tailored to a quantitative analysis for developing economies, which equips students with advanced quantitative methods and skills for studying economic development phenomena or it can be oriented towards Development Studies, with a less technical and more interdisciplinary approach.
