The Department overview

The creation of two Departments (the Department of Economics and Political Science and the Department of Social Sciences and Humanities) in March 2012 brought a significant change under the process of re-organisation involving the entire academic system in Italy.

The Departments bring together distinct but synergistic areas of expertise based on their specific spheres of teaching and research. The Department of Economics and Political Science coordinates the research and teaching in the two degree courses ‘Economics and Business Management’ and ‘Political Science and International Relations’.

Its aim is to develop scrupulous research that is relevant nationally and internationally and to disseminate knowledge through stimulating and responsible teaching.
The Head of the Department is Prof. Michele Vellano.
