CURRICULUM

First year Master’s

The second year includes advanced classes in various fields of specialization (game theory, behavioral economics, finance, territorial analysis, strategic intelligence, economics and innovation management, data mining, etc.). The organization of course units varies from track to track.

The respective weighting of ECTS credits varies from track to track.
