    Giuseppe De Marco
    V MEF

    "I am Associate Professor in Mathematics for Economics and Finance at the University of Naples Parthenope where I teach Risk Theory, Mathematical Finance and Optimization. My research interests are in Game Theory, Decision Theory and Probability Theory. Recent research focuses on the effects of imprecise probabilities in noncooperative games."

    Jan Bicanic
    XV MEF

    "After a B.A. in Economics and Mathematics at the Boston University, I continued my studiy in Naples attending the XV MEF. Then, I worked  at the Management Consulting Department  of KPMG Croatia for 4 years. Actually I am Project Manager at Hrvatski Telecom, Business Development and Innovation Centre."

    Francesco Paolo Conteduca

    I am an economist at the Bank of Italy. My personal experience in the MEF XVI Edition was really positive. I had the opportunity to face increasing challenges day by day and to acquire a set of theoretical and technical skills, constituting a fundamental ingredient in my store of knowledge. But MEF is not all about studying and taking exams, it gaves me the chance to make friends in a multicultural envronment with people sharing my same interests."
