International Business and Development (IBD) is a second level degree in economics and business (LM77-Economic and business sciences), taught and examined entirely in English, offered by the Department of Economics of Parma University.
It is a two year course and on successful completion graduates are awarded the “laurea magistrale” or second cycle degree certificate.
IBD is designed for candidates from different academic backgrounds and aims to provide a thorough grounding in international economics and global development.
IBD students are encouraged to gain experience abroad during the two academic years, and can take advantage of a large number of opportunities.
IBD teaching methods are mainly interactive and require student participation. Almost all courses include project work, where groups of students, assisted by teachers, prepare, present and discuss projects with teachers and peers.
If you are a first-year student, on Esse3 you have a choice between two exams:
MICRO & MACRO ECONOMICS
EU POLICIES & PROJECTS
As already explained, your choice is not totally discretionary, but it depends on your bachelor's degree.
Students holding a degree in economics, business, statistics, etc., shall choose EU POLICIES & PROJECTS.
Students without economic background shall choose MICRO & MACRO ECONOMICS.
The economic background can be assessed considering whether you have taken in your previous studies at least 30 credits of economic-related subjects (corresponding roughly to a one-semester workload).
Due to the new national laws concerning pandemic management and the adjustments that our University has made, for students enrolled in 2019/2020 IBD Council has postponed the deadline for language certification to 15 February 2021.
Until that date, second-year students will be allowed to take regular examinations for the three subjects of the first semester 2020/2021.
