The master’s program is offered by the Department of Business and Management in cooperation with the Department of Political Science. The master’s degree program in Global Management and Politics aims at balancing topics related to management with socio-political issues, on the ground that global managers must be aware of the intricacies of global politics.
The master’s degree program in Global Management and Politics stems from the need to offer interdisciplinary and international training to allow graduates to easily master the skills required by companies and institutions operating on a global scale.
The program starts with the exploration of the economic, legal and economic-business foundations of global management. The course of studies then focuses on organizational and strategic issues and, finally, ends with the analysis of important issues related to the political implications of globalization, international relations, the dynamics of international governmental and non-governmental organizations and activities related to representing corporate, stakeholder and institutional interests.

The program creates professional figures who can predict, support and govern complex phenomena that require interdisciplinary approaches and skills. Specifically, reference is made to the professional opportunities related to positions of responsibility in international companies and institutions, consultancy firms operating at the global level, representing interests (lobbying) at the international and institutional levels, as well as complex interactions with government and non-governmental global organizations.
The expected professional profile differs from the ones acquired via a pure managerial education due to the addition of political skills, including: understanding political and bureaucratic logics compared to the corporate world; perception of how national and international public institutions are changing, and how managers should interact with them; risk assessment with respect to political-institutional transformations.
