With its multidisciplinary approach, the Economics, Networks and Business Analytics (ENBA) programme of the IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca is unique in its deployment of a strong integration of concepts, analytical foundations, artificial intelligence and practical expertise, to educate the new generation of economists, scientists and practitioners with distinctive capabilities in analyzing, interpreting, and managing complex socio-economic systems.
Graduates will be trained to become researchers and decision makers in academia, policy and industry by integrating knowledge at the boundary of economics, statistical physics, computer and social sciences with the unifying language of mathematics and statistics. Close associations with a selected set of companies and institutions provide the opportunity to analyze relevant problems, motivating new analytical techniques from practical problem solving. Students are involved in the analysis of real world high dimensional data, in collaboration with companies and institutions.
