Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore

Academics

The Double Degree Programme aims to develop skills and competences in the following areas: business administration, economics, law, mathematics and statistics, IT and foreign languages.

The Programme of Study includes two internships in a company or a national or international body. Students will develop a project or carry out business check-ups, in order to foster their contact with the international market.
They will learn how to read international business phenomena influencing company choices, to analyze and evaluate internationalisation strategies, to investigate outcomes and company competitors, and to better understand the cross-cultural integration process of companies operating in a global scenario.

The teaching programme is benchmarked to top national and international standards and offers a wide range of opportunities. The international identity of this degree course is enriched by multinational study groups that help students to adapt to different teaching methods and improve their language skills and socio-cultural flexibility.
Activities include practical exercises, case studies and simulations, as well as lectures held by entrepreneurs, integrating traditional theoretical classes with educational activities to develop the knowledge, skills and competences necessary in the labour market.

Students are supported by tutors during their university careers.
