Main focus

; Graduates of this master programme will be able to apply quantitative techniques to problem-solving in business. The programme actively encourages interest in the rigorous research typical of the fields of quantitative methods for the economy and the company and for business organisation. Accordingly, graduates will be able to carry out empirical and simulation studies aimed at verifying the reliability of a new methodology or quantitative technique. They will also be capable of effectively implementing company management policies and of designing systems to properly manage information throughout the enterprise. The skills acquired will permit graduates to competently use practical tools for evaluating human resources management and possess the business management expertise required to lay the groundwork for initiative, innovation, and entrepreneurship.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
