The formal requirement for admission is a Bachelor's degree from a recognized academic institution in Economics, Business Economics or other related fields, preferably with some quantitative background.
Candidates with a Bachelor's degree of a recognized University of Applied Sciences may be admitted with 30-60 additional ECTS to be earned during or before the beginning of the program, with Bachelor or Master courses according to a study program defined by the scientific director. Admissions will be treated on a case by case basis.
The places offered are limited, therefore the selection can be effected on the basis of the academic results.
Admission to English-language graduate-level (Master) programmes at USI requires a good command, or advanced knowledge, of the English idiom. Non-English native speakers applying for the Master, or whose previous degree was obtained in another language than English, are required to provide an internationally acknowledged language certificate equal to the B2 level (IELTS 5.5), as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for language learning (CEFR), or equivalent (e.g. TOEFL, IELTS, etc.).
Students admitted on the above-mentioned condition must achieve a C1 (IELTS 7.0) competence in English within the maximum time required to obtain the Master's degree. The level can be certified either by attending a language course offered at USI during the Fall and Spring semester, and by taking the final exam, or by providing an internationally acknowledged language certificate.
A complete list of the accepted English language certificate is available at https://www.usi.ch/en/education/master/admission.
Über den Studiengang
The MSc in Economics (ME)* is an advanced program offered by the Faculty of Economics at the Università della Svizzera Italiana.
The goal of the Master's is to teach students how to analyze economic problems at the national as well as international level and how to identify the most appropriate policy instruments. In a cordial environment and in close interaction with the Faculty, the students will be equipped with the quantitative methods and the analytical tools necessary for a successful career as a professional economist in the private or public sector. To optimally prepare for different career paths, the students have the option to acquire additional programming skills (minor in data science) or additional tools relevant for public policy analysis (minor in public policy). The master will also drive interested students into a Ph.D. program.
- Programme entirely taught in English, with a strong international orientation,
- International Faculty from USI and abroad,
