Rome Masters in Economics (RoME)
The Rome Masters in Economics (RoME) is a challenging, two-year graduate course (Laurea Magistrale), entirely taught in English, designed for a small group of selected students with high drive and potential. It gives them the tools to start pursuing high-quality independent research.
RoME offers students a gateway to Ph.D. programs in the world’s leading universities, or the foundation for a career as a professional economist in private and public institutions.
RoME is offered jointly by EIEF (Einaudi Institute for Economic and Finance), a world-class research center created in 2008 by the Bank of Italy, and by LUISS (Libera Università di Studi Sociali), a leading Italian university for social sciences. It is run by two Scientific Directors and monitored by a Steering Committee, which includes three top independent academics.
All RoME courses have a quantitative, analytical and empirical focus and combine rigorous training in advanced techniques of economic analysis with a special attention to applied and policy issues. Class sizes are small. Courses feature intense tutoring and challenging class assignments. RoME emphasizes diverse research fields and styles.
Teachers are active researchers with international reputations, including many world-renowned visitors, who are in residence for extended periods. Students find a supportive and challenging environment, comparable to the best master’s programs around the world.
RoME offers a fee waiver and scholarship covering living expenses to most students, awarded based on academic merit (parental income and residence will also be taken into account). Each year, the entering class will enlist top students from around the world (here is the current youngest cohort).
