Majors

In order to help our students select an appropriate academic pathway to follow after they have completed the B.A. in Global Governance, the program offers six majors to choose from.
These majors have been developed for an in-depth study of the subject areas already present in the early years of the program, and they take into account the main specializations of international studies on globalization.
In the third year, each student is required to choose his or her major from the following list:

Specialization in Global Economics

The specialization in Economics is aimed at offering an advanced treatment of both Game theoretic foundations and the models of International Economics. The aim of the specialization is to provide students with a final level of training of micro and macroeconomcis that is analogous to the one of Undergraduate students that have chosen to specialize in the field of Economics. In Game Theory, static and dynamic games with complete information will be analyzed by studying oligopolistic markets but also real life political dilemma. This will be followed by incomplete information games dealing with adverse selection and moral hazard in the context of labor, insurance and corporate governance settings. In International economics, modern theories of international trade and  open macroeconomy models will be explored taking advantage of the new global governance context as a laboratory for verifying their implications, both at the positive and normative level.

Specialization in Business Administration 

The specialization in Management is based on the assumption that all organizations are both public (since they affect people as public citizens and not only as private individuals) and private (since parameters such as efficiency, effectiveness and value for money matter given limited resources). The specialization aims at providing a general overview on "for profit", "public" and "non profit" management, examining in depth managerial tools such as strategic planning, corporate social responsibility and international accounting. Special attention is paid to management issues that have a worldly character.

Specialization in Legal Studies

The specialization is aimed at deepening the students' knowledge of legal issues and legal methodology, for preparing students to further studies in the Schools of law as well as in national and international institutions. The teaching program focuses on the legal systems and private comparative law, with special attention to the Common Law legal system, and focuses on the new trends in the protection of fundamental rights through a case-law approach.

Specialization in Global Politics

The specialization is aimed at offering a firm basis for historical understanding of globalization. The teaching will provide a detailed explanation of the key topics of international history from the Second World War to our times. It will focus on the relationship between the Cold War and global processes, with the intent to analyze the end of the bipolar world and its aftermath. Special attention will be devoted to the place and role of Europe in international relations, and to the European integration in the framework of international transitions since the ‘70s.

Specialization in Global Flows

The specialization aims at offering the students a thorough perspective on the socio-cultural dimensions of globalization, which should not be read any longer as an ongoing process of homogenization, since the explosion of “multiple modernities” has brought to the forum the relevance of heterogenization as central to social reproduction. With this major, Global Governance gives its students historical, sociological and anthropological tool to properly decipher globalization as complexity in motion. Transnational migrations and women condition shall be addressed in the light of the most recent theoretical frames on cosmopolitanism and super-diversity.

Specialization in Security and Data 

The classes for this field of study are intended to provide a basic level of preparation regarding  IT safety and modern data management. They represent a factor of added value for students who decide to take these classes, given the global nature of the topics and their extreme importance in today’s working world which is dominated by the internet.
