About LMEF

The "Laurea Magistrale in Economics and Finance” (LMEF) is an advanced two-year course that allows students to complete their graduate training in economics and finance.  The program is taught entirely in English.

Admission is based upon previous academic performance and knowledge of English. 

The purpose of this two-year course is to provide students with the tools to analyse economic and financial problems in a rigorous fashion. LMEF prepares students for a professional career in banking, insurance and financial services, international and public institutions, and research institutes or for pursuing graduate studies in economics and finance. 

Classes are taught by academics from the University of Napoli Federico II and other universities in Europe and the United States.  Student assessment is based on exams and a final dissertation due at the end of the second year.

Tuition fees are waived for foreign students (except for the regional tax of €140,00).  For italian applicants tuition fees are based on family income (ISSEU).
