The Double Degree program in Financial Economics with HSE offers a high-caliber theoretical and practical education in financial economics, through a curriculum made of core courses in Micro and Macroeconomics, Financial Econometrics, Asset Pricing and Corporate Finance, along with applied courses in several fields of Economics and Finance. Taught at the prestigious International College of Economics and Finance (ICEF, first-ranked in Russia in the field of Economics and Econometrics) in collaboration with the London School of Economics and Political Science, the program will offer students the chance to study in the heart of Moscow, one of the biggest European cities, and to get a close connection with the Italian corporate and financial community in the city.

The program is structured as follows:

  • the second year is carried out at HSE. 

After completing the program, students receive two diplomas:
