The Economics Department offers four tracks including two cutting-edge interdisciplinary programmes in European Law and Economic Analysis [ELEA] and European Public Policy Analysis [EPPA] where students get the opportunity to work in mixed teams of economists and lawyers or political scientists, and the option European Economic Integration and Business with a specific focus on business issues at EU level and regulation that impacts on corporate strategy.

Unique features
