General Objectives
Economic changes have increased the complexity of management. Working professionally in management implies having a deep knowledge of the structure and strategic behaviour of organisations. The achievement of this aim relies on a foundation in economic science, analytical tools and analytical methodologies useful for the perception of the context in which they act and for the definition of corporate strategies. The main objectives of this course are:
- To develop knowledge/skills that cross the areas of microeconomic theory and economic policies with that of the business sciences;
- To provide knowledge capable of perceiving and evaluating the components in which the company operates, in order to formulate business strategies in dynamic and complex environments. - To provide the scientific bases for working in industry, finance, consulting, public and non-profit organisations and to pursue 3rd cycle studies in the area.
