The Bachelor of Science in International Politics and Government at Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi is the first undergraduate program offered by Bocconi in the field of political science, with a small multicultural class group of selected, highly motivated students, taught by a dedicated international faculty.


You will learn how to interpret the evolution of social, economic and political systems in an international perspective, understand the mechanisms of decision-making within national and international institutions, and develop skills needed for implementing and evaluating policies.

You will acquire a toolbox of soft and hard skills through active learning from a wide array of subjects: politics, economics, management, law, history and quantitative methods. Great emphasis is placed on three moments of policy-making: designing public policies which are both economically efficient and politically sustainable; implementing public policies with an effective approach; and evaluating public policies using modern quantitative and qualitative techniques.

All students take part in the compulsory exchange, studying abroad at a partner university for one semester, and have the option of doing an internship.


The majority of graduates in International Politics and Government at Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi are likely to go on to graduate studies. They can nevertheless access the labor market directly.

Graduates may work in the analysis, communication, implementation and assessment of public policies. 

Their skills include examining and interpreting elements for the external environment and their changes, considering the historical, legal, economic, sociological and political landscape, including with an international perspective; a mastery of qualitative and quantitative analysis tools suitable to defining public intervention policies and the assessment of their impact; understanding the lines of action for institutional and public communication, applying the most appropriate tools and techniques; and supporting political and administrative leadership (e.g. documentary research, writing reports and minutes, organizing meetings).

Career opportunities include work at international, national and local public institutions (e.g. municipalities, European Commission, United Nations), companies in highly regulated sectors (e.g. energy, environmental and mass media sectors) and political analysis institutions and research centers.
