Welcome to the Department of Economics & Management
During the academic year 2012-2013 the Faculty of Economics of University of Pavia celebrated its fifty years of life. This anniversary coincided with a symbolic rebirth of our organization in the form of Department of Economics & Management, following the changes in University regulations adopted in recent years. It is therefore a particularly important moment, which marks not only the celebration of a past and an important present but also opens a new phase of life for our community.
The Department of Economics and Management offers students the opportunity to study a wide variety of topics from the functioning of economic systems, micro and macro phenomena to applied economics for business activities. The teaching program includes Double Degree courses, programs and curricula taught in English.
Pavia: the city of hundred towers
Erasmus + (2014-2020) is the new 16 billion euro catch-all framework program for education, training, youth and sport. It is built on the well-known and respected EU brand of the highly successful Erasmus student exchange program.
All previous programs like Youth in Action, Erasmus and LLP are included in Erasmus+. It is divided into 3 principal pillars: education and formation, youth, and sport.
The main objective of Erasmus plus is to improve employability of the youth by acquiring supplementary competences appreciated by employers, as well as improving their language skills and flexibility.
The youth sector part will be based around three different types of projects, known as Key Actions.
- Learning mobility of individuals;
It is addressed to Staff (teachers, trainers, school leaders and youth workers) and students. Here we can find the old Youth in Action actions 1.1, 3.1, 2 (EVS), 4.3 (which now can be up to 2 months).
- Co-operation and Innovation for Good Practices;
It is addressed to Universities, international NGOs and youth workers. In this action will be included the old 1.2 action, but only the trans-national youth initiatives. The national youth initiatives will disappear. It will also be included short term and long term EVS for youth workers.
- Support for Policy Reform;
In this action will be included the old action 5 from Youth in Action. It will also be included EU presidency events and Council of Europe events.
