Politics, Economics And Culture of China - MAPECC - 中国政治经济文化硕士

The increase in cultural exchange and commercial trade with China demands new kinds of professionals who can support managers in multinational companies, economic and political consultants, and market research agencies in their dealings with the Chinese business sector and Chinese society as a whole.  The Department of Economics and Finance in the Faculty of Economics and the Faculty of Linguistic Sciences and Foreign Literatures at the Università Cattolica of Milan have collaborated with the Confucius Institute to design an innovative postgraduate program focusing on the study of China: the Master in Politics, Economics and Culture of China - MAPECC. The 12 month program benefits from the unique combination of economic, political and linguistic-cultural expertise provided by the Faculties, which is integrated with academic expertise from other universities and with seminars given by European and Chinese experts.

MAPECC will give students a thorough understanding of the economic, business, political and cultural development of China as well as the required Chinese language knowledge. MAPECC aims to train talented participants to deal with the challenges of an evolving cultural and trade relationship with China.
