The objective of the second-cycle degree programme in International Politics and Markets at the University of Bologna is to train professionals working at the crossroads of political science, international relations and economics, who are capable of understanding and analysing political, economic and global governance matters in a comprehensive manner.
The degree programme places special emphasis on the study of firms in a global political context and of international markets, which is uncommon for degree programmes in the LM-62 classes and is, to some extent, unique in Italy.
The cultural and professional profile to be formed is, accordingly, that of specialists who understands the international political, financial and economic architecture and, at the same time, are able to operate successfully within firms active in international markets, partly as a result of the specific business finance and competitor analysis skills developed. These professional skills are displayed by: specialists in economic policies and international finance: foreign trade relations specialists; political risk specialists.
The programme is promoted by the Department of Political and Social Sciences in co-operation with the Department of Economics and the Department of Management of the University of Bologna, and it benefits from the strong international reputation of these Departments in teaching and research.
LM IPM enhances career opportunities in the private sector, in particular within companies working in an international context. It allows graduates to understand, evaluate and manage the international economic issues and to become consultants, analysts and managers for private companies, trading associations and international agencies.
Students who graduate in LM IPM can work as specialist in international economic and financial policies, as expert in trade relations with foreign countries, as political risk specialist.
