MEPIN offers a wide range of scientific tools and specific skills, which are essential for understanding the economic and political phenomena linked to globalisation and the functioning of public and international institutions.
The basis on which the entire programme is developed is linked to the study of economics, law and institutions, and international politics.
The programme also provides the multidisciplinary and managerial knowledge necessary to address issues such as sustainable development, globalisation of markets, population ageing, migratory phenomena and, more generally, forms of cooperation between public authorities and private economic operators aimed at achieving a common objective, such as the provision of a service or the creation and management of a project.
The study of the areas of intersection between the public and private sectors, from the local to the global level, requires skills in both the economic-financial and public-policy fields, as well as knowledge of the legal, regulatory and communication aspects of the relationship between the parties.
