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 also 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. Large 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 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 relevant non-market environment.
The majority of graduates in International Politics and Government are likely to go on to graduate studies. Nevertheless, they can access the labor market directly, typically playing junior roles in the analysis, evaluation and implementation of public policy; for instance:
This program features an international, policy-oriented approach to studying government and politics.
In the main courses, you will learn the core topics of the program (political science, political economics, history and international relations) and acquire research tools (mathematics, statistics, policy evaluation and negotiation skills) to interpret the evolution of social, economic and political systems in an international perspective, and to implement and evaluate public policies.
In the third year, study abroad opportunities, internships, workshops on specialized subjects and a large array of elective courses will allow you to gain more international exposure as well as labor market experience in your areas of interest.
