Master’s degree course against inequalities across the world

Applications for full scholarships for the Master’s degree course on Globalisation, Governance and International Understanding – strongly advocated by Professor Emmanuele F. M. Emanuele and promoted and supported by Fondazione Terzo Pilastro – Italia e Mediterraneo in association with the Link Campus Univesity and the Lomonosov Moskow State University – must be submitted no later that the 28th of February.  The course aims to transfer analyses and knowledge of the effects of globalisation on the development of civil societies in various geographic areas, focusing on Europe, the Mediterranean Region and Russia.  Globalisation has in fact increased areas of social injustice and created pockets of poverty.

Professor Emanuele, of Fondazione Terzo Pilastro states, “This master’s degree course is unparalleled in Italy due to the breadth of the themes addressed and the innovative exchange between Italian and Russian students and it remarkably integrates the high level postgraduate education which the Foundation has promoted and provided to youths for years.  I am delighted to now add the Link Campus University, where I had the privilege of teaching in such a strategic sector as International Relations and Management, to the long-standing partnerships with prestigious universities such as Luiss, Lumsa and Iulm.  The core curriculum aims to provide Italian a foreign students with the necessary tools and skills to work as decision makers in various sectors from business to finance, politics and communications at an international level.  The future of our world lies in the hands of the young generation and they should be equipped with specialized training, which is an essential tool to address the challenges of today’s society.

The contribution of the Lomonosov Moskow State University, one of the world’s most prestigious universities is fundamental.  Moreover, the exchange of information between Italy and Russia will enable students to learn how these countries have absorbed the effects of globalisation and therefore draft the Agenda for the 21st century.  Since the lessons/modules will be held in both countries students may learn each other’s language.

The twelve full scholarships made available by Fondazione Terzo Pilastro amount to twelve thousand euro each.  Another ten scholarships will be awarded to Russian students selected by the Muscovite University.
