The programme in Economics and Banking offered by the University of Siena addresses the fundamentals of financial intermediation within the banking industry, insurance sector and financial markets by providing a sound training in all the core economic disciplines and other social sciences, such as history and law.


The programme in Economics and Banking offered by the University of Siena examines how financial institutions and markets function with a particular attention to the micro- and macro-economic dimensions.

The programme has been designed by focusing on resources allocation under uncertainty, corporate financing and investment decisions, insurance and risk management, the functioning and regulation of financial markets within a broader institutional and social framework.

Graduates in Economics and Banking will develop skills in understanding economic and financial phenomena and acquire all the core skills required for the analysis of economic issues and of data. Graduates will also attain a significant advantage for progressing to a number of graduate courses and, in particular, for the three MSc programmes in Economics, Finance and International Accounting and Management (IAMa) taught in English at Siena.

Our graduates are expected to acquire both all the core economic competencies and excellent problem solving skills, that is that very set of key skills which are amongst the most sought-after in the labour market.
