Ce programme de master intègre des méthodes d’enseignement et des techniques d’apprentissage mixtes qui permettent aux participants d’étudier et d’assimiler la théorie et d’appliquer les connaissances de façon pratique par la réalisation de travaux, d’études de cas, de visites d’étude et d’un projet de recherche appliquée. La participation au programme permet aussi d’accéder à un réseau et d’être exposé à l’expertise, à l’expérience et au savoir-faire d’académiciens, d’experts travaillant au sein d’organismes internationaux et de spécialistes des secteurs public et privé.

La finalité du programme est de préparer les participants à occuper des fonctions exécutives ou managériales en relation avec la régulation, la passation ou la supervision des marchés publics et des contrats au niveau des administrations et des organisations internationales.

Le programme se déroule en français et il est d’unedurée totale de 12 mois.

Le programme est structuré en trois phasesd’apprentissage successives d’une durée d’environquatre mois suivant le calendrier ci-après:

The Master in Data Science for Complex Economic Systems is a one year full-time postgraduate program (II level Master Degree) taught in English and welcomes students from different disciplines (e.g. economics, physics, computer science and political science).
The Master provides theoretical and methodological tools to understand and analyse complex systems which typically exhibit nonlinear behaviour resulting from the interaction of heterogeneous agents, hierarchy and continuous innovation. These properties require exploring new visions and expanding education beyond the frontier of traditional economic studies. In addition to the standard toolkit of economics and econometrics, the program takes a path-breaking perspective on advanced analytics, including big data, machine-learning network analysis, and agent-based simulation. The Master applies this pioneering approach to modelling, management, forecasting and policymaking in innovation, urban and consumption systems.
The teaching method combines a thorough theoretical training with hands-on laboratories also in collaboration with top research centres and corporations. Our faculty is recruited from top schools (e.g. Écoles Normale Supérieure de Lyon, GREQUAM), on the international academic job market. The faculty also includes scholars from the University of Turin and the Collegio Carlo Alberto.
In addition to their coursework, students interact with the faculty, fellows, and researchers of the University of Turin and of the Collegio.
Master’s graduates can apply with full recognition of course credits for admission to the Vilfredo Pareto Doctorate in Economics (curriculum in Complexity) of the University of Turin.

Application deadline: 23 August 2015

The Master of Laws in International Crime and Justice is jointly organized by the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) and the Department of Law at the University of Turin (UNITO).

The LL.M. is designed for postgraduates and young professionals interested in furthering their knowledge and critical understanding of International Criminal Law. Students will have the possibility to engage in up-to-date analysis on various topics such as:

- International Criminal Law;

- International Humanitarian Law;

- International Criminal Jurisdictions and International Criminal Procedure;

- Comparative Law and Comparative Criminal Law;

- Relationship between International Criminal Law and National Legislation;

- Interstate Co-operation on Criminal Matters;

- Transnational Organized Crime and Transantional Crimes such as, Cybercrime, Corruption, Environmental Crime, Terrorism and Trafficking in Persons.

The LL.M. is taught through a combination of academic lectures and practical exercises favouring active interactions between participants, tutors and lecturers. The initial e-learning phase is designed to facilitate the participation of international students and, at the same time, harmonize their legal knowledge in view of the activities envisaged on-campus. The residential phase, which is structured around specialised academic lectures, group work and practical assignments (including a mock trial, field visits and exercises, simulations, and a final moot court), is held in an unparalleled setting at the United Nations Campus in Turin, Italy.

The Campus is located on 10 hectares of riverside parkland and hosts other national and international organizations such as the ITC-ILO and UNSSC. It holds annually more than 450 programmes and projects involving approximately 11,000 people from over 180 countries and also offers leisure time, dining, and sports facilities to its guests.

The Master's programme is optimally designed to act as a gateway to an exciting national or international career. Depending on each student’s academic background, career prospects might include: legal positions for international and national tribunals; legal and policy advising assignments for UN agencies and other international organizations; consultant posts for NGOs or victim support agencies; professional roles in the ministries of foreign affairs, justice and defence policy.

In particular, thanks to a series of training on Project Cycle Management, students will explore tools and develop skills crucial for the management of projects on crime prevention and justice reform. Furthermore, a series of dedicated sessions on career guidance and professional development in the UN System are offered during the programme. Students, for example, will have the possibility to attend individual meetings with representatives of the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme and receive feedback and tips on their professional profile.

The programme, now at its 10th edition, has been attracting increasing interest and a growing number of applications every year. Part of this success lays in the key benefits that the LL.M. offers to its students, which include:

- Initial e-learning phase (3 Nov 2015 - 15 Jan 2016) that allows students to study from their own countries;

- Residential phase (25 Jan - 31 July 2016) held in the unparalleled setting at the United Nations Campus in Turin, Italy;
