Description

Immerse yourself in the economic world with this Bachelor of Sciences of Economic and Social Sciences, offered by Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi, that Emagister.co.uk has added to its educational catalogue.

This BSc is a program in economics, but highly interdisciplinary in nature and grounded in solid quantitative and methodological foundations. With its particular blend of economic, quantitative and social science topics, this innovative program finds synergies among subjects, to attain different perspectives on leading international economic issues.

It is among the pioneering programs in Europe in proposing a new integrated view of economics and social sciences. Today, sociologists make use of game theory, and demographers use economic models to analyze population dynamics. Similarly, economists talk about crime and incentives, analyze the mind as philosophers and psychologists do, and study social stratification among other areas of multidisciplinary convergence.

The program focuses on understanding how individuals think and make decisions, for example about saving, energy consumption, fertility or health. This is a crucial aspect for firms and organizations that may be launching a new product, as well as for governments designing economic policies aimed at tackling poverty or unemployment. The linchpin of its innovative study plan is that individual behavior is not only determined by mere economic factors (how much an individual profits from a decision) but also by psychological traits (how emotions and cognitive limits shape actual decisions) and social norms (how the behavior of others, and shared values, affect one's decision).

Program Structure


FIRST YEAR

Main topics

  • Economics (micro and macro)
  • Math (theoretical and applied)
  • Logic and Methods for Social Sciences
  • Management

First foreign language
Computer science

During the first year, you will be given training in several basic subjects in order to understand how companies and organizations work (Management), as well as the economic system in which they operate.
Economics, in fact, describes the functioning of economic systems both at an overall level (macroeconomics) and at the level of the individual behavior of firms and consumers (microeconomics). Through Math and Statistics, both theoretical and applied, you will be provided with a wide set of quantitative tools to understand and apply an array of economic models.
Finally, the course in Logic and Methodology of Social Sciences gives you the fundamentals of logic and critical thinking to understand how the mind should work in order to detect fallacious patterns of reasoning (when does B follow from A?), assess and (de)construct arguments, think consistently and analytically.

SECOND YEAR

Main topics

  • Econometrics
  • Strategic Decision Making
  • Economic Policy
  • Incentive Design and Policy
  • Introduction to Cognitive Science
  • Law

Second foreign language

In the second year, you will learn more about Markets and Strategic Decision Making, exploring choice and demand, finance, and game theory, in order to understand how individuals make economic decisions, and how companies and organizations compete in markets.
Then, through Incentive Design and Policy, you will learn how and why markets feature imperfections and how to correct them via public policies.
In Macroeconomics and Economic Policy you will deepen your understanding of macroeconomic issues such as: Why does unemployment exist? Why do some countries become richer than others? Why do financial crisis happen? Is the Euro a good idea?
You will also study the basis of cognitive sciences, to learn how the individual mind (with its cognitive limits) actually works in order to make sense of how a society works as a whole.
Economic history is fundamental to understanding the evolution of political and economic-social systems, as it enables you to better interpret the current environment.
Private and Business Law will give you an overview of civil law in both a domestic and a broader international context.

THIRD YEAR

Main topics

  • Data Analysis
  • Sociology
  • Public Policy and Law
  • International Economics and Finance
  • Organizations and Social Psychology

Exchange program
Internship
Final report

In the last year, you will complete your path with courses like Organizations and Social Psychology, that will help you understand micro-organizational behavior (how individuals and groups affect and are affected by organizations) as well as macro-organizational behavior (how organizations work and their relationships with the environment).
Moreover, Culture, Institutions and Development will teach you how social norms and culture affect the path of development of a community or of a country, and vice versa. While Empirical Methods and Data Analysis focuses on applications and implementation with data in topics such as labor, development, political economy, industrial organization.
You will also be able to further personalize your study plan:

  • Choosing several electives
  • Doing an internship in Italy or abroad
  • Taking part in a study abroad program
  • Selecting a research topic you’re interested in, that you can deepen and develop in your final report
