    The MSc in Economics is a two year graduate programme that aims to provide an advanced level of education in economics. The program is built on four core courses — mathematics, microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics — in order for students to acquire advanced tools for economic analysis, and offers a wide array of specialized topics in most fields of modern economics. The programme is held entirely in English.
    The MSc programme profits from the international research environment that has traditionally characterized our department. The department promotes several exchange programs with prominent international institutions, regularly involving visits to the department by both scholars and researchers. Among our guests to date, we have hosted Nobel Laureates Robert Solow and Ken Arrow, as well as O. Williamson, P. Diamond and others as Fulbright Professors. Past Faculty members include distinguished scholars such as Richard Goodwin and Frank Hahn, and currently include Sam Bowles. Moreover, the Department of Economics has been running a PhD programme in Economics since early 1980s. The experience gained through our PhD programme, which is taught in English and has always attracted students from all over the world, has been crucial in generating the competences necessary to manage an international MSc course.
    The programme is designed to give our students the ability to approach a wide variety of economic and social issues. Moreover, the cultural tradition of the Department of Economics in Siena has always favoured a pluralistic approach to the analysis of economic problems, in the belief that exposure to competing theoretical perspectives facilitates understanding of economic phenomena. In the same spirit, Siena has always encouraged ""contamination"" of the economic approach with other disciplines, such as other social sciences, history, law, as well as biology, psychology, etc.
