Course overview

The Management and Finance course is divided into three curricula – Finance, Human Resources and Marketing, and Operations Management – and is based on the principle that managers of financial resources, human resources, industrial operations and marketing policies play an important strategic role in the competitivity of modern companies, whatever their size, and their success in the mid-to-long term. From this perspective, the Master’s degree in Management and Finance is designed to supply specialist knowledge for the training of professionals in the three management fields. The Finance curriculum deals with management of financial resources, both in non-financial sector companies and in financial/insurance-based service providers. The Human Resources curriculum looks at the selection, development and evaluation of personnel in terms of efficient integration of this activity within overall company management strategies. Marketing and Operations Management provides the tools for accurate definition of processes aimed at acquisition and maintenance of long-term competitivity. The Master’s degree in Management and Finance aims to unite a practical-operational approach with an overall perspective that takes into account internal and external business factors.
