Overview of the academic year
Live in Rome, Berlin and Nice and learn how, today more than ever, governance is a game changer in the global economy.
The Joint Master in Global Economic Governance and Public Affairs (GEGPA) is a one-year programme that takes place in three different cities:
October to January: Rome (Italy)
The programme starts in Rome, on the campus of LUISS, School of Government. Courses will give an introduction to Global Governance, focusing on the context and challenges of economic governance and policy in the 21st century.
February to April: Berlin (Germany)
The programme continues in Berlin, in the CIFE premises. Teaching will be concentrating on new forms of transnational and interregional governance as a way forward towards Sustainable Development in the context of major climate and demographic changes.
April to June: Nice (France)
Courses conclude in Nice, in CIFE’s main premises. A special focus will be laid on Policy Intelligence, inciting participants to investigate how far the digital society enables transforming economic data into policy knowledge. As part of their academic requirements, students will complete a final Master thesis.
“The teachers are the best part of the programme. They are primarily practitioners who bring the wisdom and experience they have acquired in their own work to the classroom. You will be taught by very impressive people from the OECD and other notable institutions. And of course the traveling is spectacular. Rome, Berlin, and Nice are some of the most amazing cities I’ve ever been to. Living in three different countries, one after the other, is pretty fantastic.”
