The Master of Science in Economics, Finance and International Integration at University of Pavia  trains students longing to start high level careers as professionals or managers in national and multinational firms and within the Public Administration. Starting from the academic year 2013-2014 this Master Program will be entirely taught in English, fulfilling the internalization aims of our Department. The Department is already involved in many international mobility programs for graduate students. Moreover a few double degree programs in Economics have been already agreed and are being carried out with some major European Universities. The decision to teach all MEFI courses in English is then just a further path in our internalization strategy.

Though students attending MEFi will get the same degree, they may choose from the start between three different specializations: Finance; Industrial Organization and Market Strategies; International Economic Integration. Such a variety of academic options is consistent with the existence in our Department of different groups of researchers sharing common scientific interests, publishing extensively on these topics and occasionally working as consultants for private and public institutions.

  • The Finance curriculum has been developed by a group of mathematicians, statisticians and econometricians who have long since concentrated their research work on financial markets. They also cooperate with colleagues involved in macroeconomics and corporate finance.
  • The Industrial Organization and Market Regulation curriculum is based as well on a group of professors and researchers long since involved in research work about theoretical and empirical industrial organization, regulatory economics and competition policy.
  • A third curriculum concerning International Economic Integration and Development is also available, as the University of Pavia is a leading academic institution for post-graduate education in the field of international cooperation and economic development.

Career opportunities

MEFI students will improve their technical and scientific skills, and develop the ability to operate at an international level. Here are the main career opportunities offered by MEFI:

  • experts in financial markets, able not only to actually trade in sophisticated financial assets but also to manage portfolios and financial strategies of banks, insurance companies and financial institutions, at both the national and international level;
  • experts in strategic planning and regulation of markets, able to work in public regulation agencies, and in regulated firms, or firms belonging to production chains affected by competition and regulation;
