The Master in European Economic Governance (MEEG) is designed to provide economists as well as other social scientists with in-depth knowledge of European institutions, concentrating on the way key institutions function, as well as related economic policies and regulatory aspects of the EU and EMU.
Almost all big and medium-sized firms operating within EMU member states entertain stable and continuous interactions with key European institutions. These interactions can be severely hindered by insufficient knowledge of the evolution of European governance and regulatory framework on the side of firms. On the flipside, European institutions often fail to factor in technical and country-specific instruments, causing them to inadequately assess the impact of their regulatory framework on the private sector. MEEG aims at training train full-fledged economists and experts in the field of European regulation and policy. Technical and analytical competencies acquired through the program are intended to form professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the European regulatory framework, who are adept at managing relations between national institutions, companies, and European institutions.
After one year, students will earn an international master’s degree in Economics. The MEEG is a second level master’s degree (Master di II livello). It is conducted in English, with a completion requirement of 60 credits. All applicants must possess a four or five-year undergraduate degree (or equivalent diploma), and will be selected based on their CV, and, in certain cases, an interview.
The LUISS School of European Political Economy will assist students with solid academic track records in finding internship opportunities at economic and financial institutions, both Italian and European.
