Luxury goods are experiencing a significant increase in sales, and, interestingly, Italy produces 41% of Europe's luxury goods. It is with this context in mind that the Master's Degree Programme in Economics and International Management – Luxury, Made in Italy and Emerging Markets Curriculum prepares students for a career as managers or marketing specialists working in companies operating in the luxury and Made in Italy industries. Students acquire an in-depth knowledge of top-line products typical of the Italian economic system and of the opportunities created by emerging markets and globalisation. Language barriers are inevitably a significant factor when entering international markets. Conducting business in the buyer's tongue can be crucial to creating and establishing mutual confidence on which to ground solid business relations, and is unquestionably so when entering emerging markets possibly working on different cultural and rhetorical models. To address the gaps in trade export skills, UNINT students can: (1) attend all the courses taught in English; (2) learn a second language from among those spoken in the fastest-growing markets and (3) apply for a Double Master's Degree Programme (fully taught in English). Students are also offered the chance to attend lectures, seminars and conferences on the latest developments in emerging market trends and luxury goods sales. Furthermore, the Curriculum offers them the opportunity to participate in a Made in Italy Lab, to apply for an internship in Made in Italy companies, or to study abroad at partner universities such as the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, located in Los Angeles.


In a digitised world, the real challenge for businesses is to keep up with the pace of change or lose relevance. Therefore, they need to pursue innovation and develop a comprehensive digital strategy. E-commerce must be at the core of the process as it is paving the way for internationalisation and changing the way customers shop. Against this backdrop, the Master's Degree Programme in Economics and International Management – Digital Marketing and Global Markets Curriculum is designed to provide students with specialised skills related to international management and e-business, social media management, international multimedia communication, the planning process and the implementation of a digital marketing strategy, the use of web analytics as a performance tracking tool and brand management on a global scale. Students have the possibility to attend lectures and seminars on the latest developments in the sector.


The study of international relations has become central to understand and manage the complexity of global social life. The landscape of international relations has expanded considerably with a number of new challenges confronting today's society. Against this backdrop, the need to properly manage risks and opportunities related to globalisation, international institutions and global political economy requires the development of advanced management skills. The Master's Degree Programme in Economics and International Management – International Relations Curriculum develops the critical skills, insight and global awareness required for a successful career in international relations, politics and law. Vital to this is the constantly increasing number of courses taught in English by leading experts with experience in international organisations and institutions such as the IFAD, NATO, the UN, and the World Bank. Students are given the chance to attend all the courses taught in English. The Programme offers a fascinating insight into core concepts related to international relations, as well as into the normative and economic issues involved. Students explore a broad range of issues, including foreign policy, international organisations and NGOs, international law and international relations. Furthermore, they are offered the opportunity to participate in the School of Political Science at no additional cost. The study of Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish as a second foreign language is also included in the Programme. Students may apply for a Double Master's Degree Programme (fully taught in English), thereby strengthening both their cultural and linguistic knowledge, core elements when pursuing international careers.
