Training objectives

The objective of the Master programme is to provide students with a solid understanding of the globalisation phenomenon in all of its dimensions (worldwide markets for goods and services, capital and labour/migration, political science, philosophy, the planetary challenge of the environment and sustainable development). It also offers insights and tools with which to analyse and affect the impact of globalisation on local development. As such due consideration is given to the complexity of local-global interactions in the multifaceted arenas of globalisation with a focus on Italian, Mediterranean and Russian Societies and the New World Order.


Recipients and job opportunities

In the Master’s students will also study the various dimensions and aspects of globalisation and migration and how Italian and Russian Societies have absorbed the new agenda of the 21st century.

The main aim is to gain a better understanding of the changing relationships of global and local societies through the rise of social and spatial inequalities.

Students will come to learn that these are brought about by global processes, migration and mobility and the emergence of transnational identities, which may contrast with local orientations that may be part of the same multicultural societies. The direct focus will be on the effects on the Italian and Russian Societies.

Graduates have also gone on to successful careers in many different countries and areas of employment such as international organisations, the media, government, business and finance.
