Students are encouraged and supported in the fulfillment of a research project during and after their internship on fieldwork. Each student will be supervised by a dedicated mentor (academic teacher or expert) who will help the student enhance his/her research abilities.
It is not always easy to handle a real research project. That’s why one of the preliminary courses will be dedicated to strengthening basic quantitative tools (basic statistics, the use of Excel, etc.), whereas one of the spring courses will concentrate on more advanced aspects of data science
After the discussion of the final dissertation students will be awarded the Italian degree of Master di secondo Livello in Cooperation and Development, 75 ECTS.
