Features and aims of the course


The Bachelor’s degree in Digital Economics and Business is a three-year degree course entirely taught in English with an interclass structure L-33 (Economics) and L-18 (Economics and Business Administration) which aims to integrate skills in the economic and business fields with IT skills and integrated database analysis skills, to train graduates able to apply a data-driven approach to the selection and processing of information to support decision-making processes. This Course intends to train three professional figures – the data-driven economic and financial analyst, the data-driven business analyst, and the data analyst for economics and business – who can produce relevant information starting from the analysis of data relating to the corporate business and to real and financial markets in order to guide and support the management of companies and institutions in decision-making processes.

This bachelor’s degree represents an original and innovative educational offer at the national level among public universities, where three-year bachelor’s degrees in the business-economics field entirely taught in English do exist, but none of these include IT content and related to digital aspects.
There is a single curriculum where part of the second and third year are designed in such a way as to allow the students to specialize their skills in the economic-financial or economic-business fields, while the elective courses, which also include internships, allow students who are particularly interested in IT-statistical technical skills to further develop and consolidate them.
Almost all the individual courses include several hours of laboratory and project works.
During the three-year period, the students of the course will also be able to take advantage of the opportunities of the Erasmus + and Campus World international exchange projects, as well as of the exchange agreements stipulated with various foreign universities.
