Based in Alessandria, a pleasant town surrounded by the hills of the Langhe and Monferrato wine-producing regions in northern Italy, EPPAC provides a concrete response to the need for training highly-qualified professionals capable of applying their expertise in economics to the complex phenomena arising from the intersection of markets, territory and society.
Internationalisation is a key component of the EPPAC Master's degree programme, and participants can choose from among three partner universities at which to do at least one semester's coursework and exams: the University of Rennes 1 in France, the University of Tampere in Finland, and the University of Fribourg in Switzerland.
EPPAC is the only Master's degree programme offered by the University of Eastern Piedmont leading to a Master in Economics (LM-56) or in Environmental and Cultural Economics (LM-76). Applicants need to have a solid grasp of the basic notions of economics and of methods for the social sciences. They must also be strongly motivated to learn how to apply rigorous analytical tools to respond to and provide solutions for the questions and challenges posed by our ever-changing society.
