Dual Degree with Università Bocconi (Milan, Italy)
Dual Degree in Public Policy and Management
Sciences Po and the Università Bocconi in Milan have created a dual master's degree in Public Policy and Management. Please note: this is a dual degree with the Master in Public Policy only, not the Master in European Affairs.
This dual degree gives students the opportunity to benefit from the complementarity between the two institutions: students specialize in a social science and policy-related stream at Sciences Po and then develop the abilities needed to succeed in the private sector at Bocconi. This double training allows them to develop expertise in the public, private and non-profit sectors and to address complex issues that require this varied knowledge and skills.
First year at Sciences Po School of Public Affairs
The Master in Public Policy (MPP) is based on a multidisciplinary approach to public affairs, with courses that explore the intersection between public policy and cutting-edge technologies, and emphasize policy and decision making 2.0.
During their first year students enroll in one of the policy streams offered by the Sciences Po MPP. The languages of instruction are English and/or French.
Second year at Università Bocconi
The second year takes places at Università Bocconi, in Milan, where students enroll in the Master of Science in Management and follow courses in English only. Students can choose classes in such areas as performance measurement, marketing or strategy.
During the second year, students must:
- Write and defend a master thesis (Tesi di Laurea) of about 80 pages, in English;
- Complete a 10-week internship in France, Italy or somewhere else in the world (during the summer between the two years of study).
Interested students should apply via our online admissions portal.
Dual Degree in Politics and Public Policy
Sciences Po and the Università Bocconi in Milan have created a dual master's degree in Politics & Public Policy.
Through this two-year programme, students will have the opportunity to learn the key concepts of political theories and phenomena in a comparative perspective, as well as quantitative methods for theoretical and empirical analysis. The dual-degree also explores the intersection between public policy and cutting-edge technologies, and emphasizes policy and decision making 2.0.
Please note: this is a dual degree with both the Master in European Affairs and Master in Public Policy. For both programmes the language of instruction is English and includes the writing of a Master’s Thesis (which will be defended at Bocconi), and an internship of at least 10 weeks.
First year at Università Bocconi
The first year takes places at Università Bocconi, in Milan, where students join the MSc in Politics and Policy Analysis.
This MSc aims to provide an advanced education in Political Science and the topics of public policy analysis. Students will understand the complex political, economic and social dynamics of the modern world, how national and international institutions deal with them and how to act in such contexts. They will acquire advanced training in the methods of analysis and study of both public policies and the institutions which lead the decision making process.
Second year at Sciences Po
During their second year, students are enrolled at Sciences Po, in either the Master in Public Policy or the Master in European Affairs.
Students choose also one among the 12 policy streams of the School. The large choice of elective courses also contribute to build a personal path on the basis of the student’s professional project.
This multidisciplinary curriculum trains students to understand complex policy issues, to think critically and propose concrete and innovative solutions.
- The Master in European Affairs allows students having a strong interest for the European integration project to study and deepen their knowledge in European law, politics and economics, but also history and sociology. The Master’s therefore educate students in a very multidisciplinary context.
- The Master in Public Policy, an international reference in the field, offers a transdisciplinary programme in human and social sciences and helps responsible actors to think critically about complex policy issues. Students follow core courses such as Ethics or Disruptive Technology and Leadership, combining economic, ethical, historical, political, management and technological approaches.
Interested students should apply via Sciences Po online admissions website.
