After a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Management, I enrolled in the Master’s program in Finance and participated in QTEM, an amazing experience both at an academic level and at a personal level, which helped me develop useful skills for the future market.
I now live in Frankfurt, where I work as an analyst in the Finance Directorate of the European Central Bank, dealing with budgeting, strategic planning, project governance and management reporting. In the future I’d like to continue this career in large-scale international institutions.
Cultural Heritage Policies
Major of the Master’s Degree in Policies and Governance in Europe
The Master’s degree in Policies and Governance in Europe prepares students for a professional world in which decisions in Europe are made at different related levels by both elected governments and non-elected organizations. Specifically: it analyses policies at the EU, international, national, regional and local levels; it examines elected governments, independent central banks, regulatory agencies, networks of experts, international organizations, interest groups, social movements and associations the first year covers key areas for Europe while the second year has two specialized tracks: cultural heritage; economic governance and market regulations. The approach is comparative across different European countries as well as the EU and international organisations.
It is also interdisciplinary, with courses in political science, law and economics, as well as sociology and management. It combines theory and practical examples. It is taught entirely in English by internationally-recognised experts. The course offers a combination of analytical skills, knowledge of key domains and specific competencies that are attractive for public and private sector organizations such as governments and regulatory agencies, EU and international institutions and the lobbying and public affairs units of large firms and associations. The two specialized tracks offer professional opportunities in expanding areas- cultural domains and economic governance and regulation.
The program is entirely held in EnglishThe first year of the course offers a combination of knowledge of key domains for policy making in Europe and vital skills for policy analysis - from EU institutions, law and regulation and the economics of Europe to comparative policy analysis, demography and statistics. The combination of several complementary disciplines allows students to consider the political, economic, legal and other aspects of policy questions.The second year tracks provide specialization in two expanding domains that build on the comparative advantages of Italy, Rome and Luiss. Cultural heritage includes policies towards collecting, exporting and exhibiting art, preserving historic buildings and natural heritage and promoting cultural tourism, heritage food and drink and art and immaterial heritage such as languages. Italy and Rome offer an ideal place to study as they have a long history of perseveration policies and a vast heritage- for instance, Italy has the highest number of UNESCO World heritage sites of any country. Cultural heritage is growing rapidly in Europe and elsewhere, accounting for a large percentage of economies and providing many jobs.Many new organizations to govern economic markets have been created - from independent regulatory agencies, competition authorities and central banks to expert networks and commissions, at national, EU and international levels. These bodies play central roles in the life of firms and markets as regulation has exploded in recent years. Italy has many independent agencies and long experience of governing markets through law, rules and informal norms. Understanding governance of markets requires a combination of different disciplines, as it is not just economic but also political and legal.
