More Information-

The Bachelor of International Politics and Government is the first undergraduate programme offered by Bocconi in the field of political science and it can be described with three adjectives: 

  • international, with students and faculty coming from abroad
  • exclusive, with a small class size composed of highly selected students
  • flexible, with one semester spent studying abroad at a partner university and the option of doing an internship

You will learn how to interpret the evolution of social, economic and political systems in an international perspective, to understand the mechanisms of decision-making within national and international institutions, and to acquire adequate skills for implementing and evaluating policies.

You will acquire a toolbox of soft and hard skills through active learning from a wide array of disciplines: politics, economics, management, law, history and quantitative methods.

Considerable emphasis is placed on three moments of policy-making:

  • designing public policies which are both economically efficient and politically sustainable
  • implementing public policies with an effective approach
  • evaluating public policies using modern quantitative and qualitative techniques

The programme is hence important for the development of hard and soft skills for future national and international policy-makers, active players in international organisations and regulatory authorities, and managers in international private firms dealing with an increasingly relevant non-market environment.

"Bocconi has a tradition of excellence in academic programmes in business, economics and law. Expanding its academic offer to political science is driven by a vision and a goal. The vision is to raise the adequacy level of national and international (especially European) public sector institutional structures and public (and to some extent even private) policies. The goal is to create an academic programme that contributes to increasing the quality and value of policy-makers. And to make the world a better place."
