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.
Instruction is divided into two full academic terms. The first term contains all core courses, while the second term consists of a number of elective modules. Lectures are usually held three days per week. A fourth day is reserved for conferences and seminars, as well as internal course-specific events. A fifth day is dedicated to individual study. For all courses, attendance is compulsory. To graduate, submission of a master's thesis is required for all students not taking part in the MMEPS program, as well as participation at seminars and other ad hoc academic activities.
MEEG will assist students with solid academic track records with finding internship opportunities at economic and financial institutions, both national and European.
