This is a three-week program with five days of classes. The program focuses on the aspects of European policies related to market regulation and supervision.

The first week is devoted to the analysis of the Bank of Italy. After an introductory lesson on the role of the Bank in the European system of national central banks, students will visit the Bank of Italy and attend  seminars from the Banks’ officials. Seminars will focus on the implementation of banking, financial and insurance supervision as well as the implementation of monetary policy. Case studies will focus on the resolution of banking crises and on the activity of the Finance Intelligence Unit in preventing and detecting money laundering and financial terrorism.

During the second week, students will learn about two complementary aspects of market regulation and supervision. The first aspect refers to securities regulation and supervision to ensure transparency and fair behaviors in financial markets. In this respect students will meet officials from the Italian Commission for Corporations Listed in the Stock Market (CONSOB). Seminars will focus on the regulatory framework for capital markets and the Capital Markets Union project. Case studies on market manipulation and insider trading will be presented. The second aspect refers to market regulation in the field of competition policy and consumer protection. Students will visit the Italian Anti-Trust Authority (AGCM) and attend to a presentation of the Authority’s activities including a number of case studies of market manipulation and anti-competitive behaviors. Special attention will be devoted to the antitrust enforcement in the pharmaceutical sector.

The final part of the program will deal with financing investment projects in Europe. Classes will focus on the European activities to improve SMEs' access to finance and the direct support to investment projects. In this respect, special attention will be devoted to the role of the European Investment Bank. Members of the EIB’s board will introduce students to the structure of bank, its role and its accomplishments will be provided and officials from the Roman subsidiary will introduce students to the practical management of specific investment projects.
