Mission of Mesci
The MESCI - Master in Development Economics and International Co-operation - aims at training specialists in developing economics and in international cooperation who will be able to operate in both the public and private sector. The intent is to provide the student with the necessary skills to prepare, analyse and direct co-operation programs and projects for the promotion of growth in developing countries. Furthermore students of MESCI will also be prepared to support the internationalisation activities of businesses to be set up in developing countries.
These skills will include
Economic, institutional and social problems – and their interdependence – which characterise developing countries, and the political policies necessary to tackle them;
Techniques for the formulation, analysis and the ex ante and the ex post evaluation of cooperation programmes and projects regarding the promotion of growth and the problems of their management;
Rules and practices governing access to the markets in developing countries, the localization of activities for the production of goods and services in these countries, the development of partnerships with local businesses, and the integration of these markets in the process of globalization.
