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, and a dedicated international faculty.

About

Due to its flexibility, students spend one semester studying abroad at a partner university and have the option of doing an internship.

You will learn how to interpret the evolution of social, economic and political systems in an international perspective, to 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.

The Bachelor of Science in International Politics and Government at Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi is hence important for the development of abilities for future national and international policy-makers, active players in international organizations and regulatory authorities, and managers in international private firms dealing with an increasingly important non-market environment.
