The Master in European Economic Governance (MEEG) provides economists and other social scientists with in-depth knowledge of European institutions, concentrating on the way today's key institutions function and thoroughly explaining the related economic policies and regulatory aspects of the EU and the EMU.
Almost all the big and medium-sized firms operating in the EMU member states continuously interact with key European institutions. These interactions can be severely hindered if firms have insufficient knowledge of the evolution of European governance and the European regulatory framework . On the flipside, European institutions often fail to take into account the technical and country-specific instruments, causing them to inadequately assess the impact of their regulatory framework on the private sector. MEEG aims to produce 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, professionals 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 offers 4 full scholarships, 3 partial scholarships and 1 full scholarship plus a research grant.
Students with solid academic track records will be assisted in finding internship opportunities at economic and financial institutions, both Italian and European.
