From the beginning the Faculty of Economics of the Università dalla Svizzera italiana adopted an international approach with the goal of training economists fit for the global market. The Faculty offers a curriculum designed to provide a solid background
at an undergraduate, Master and PhD level. In particular, the Bachelor’s programme includes a specialisation in one of the four streams (finance, management, economics and quantitative methods) allowing admission to high quality Master courses in strategic fields of economy.
The Faculty of Economics offers its academic degree programmes into three stages: a bachelor's (3 years) and a master's (2 years) degree and, for those willing to conduct postgraduate research, a three-year doctoral programme, awarding the degree of PhD in Economics.
