Presentation

Languages for communication in international enterprises and organisations. The name of the programme is in English because all subjects are taught in English. Exceptions are the teaching named “Language strategies and digital tools for institutional communication”, which is taught in Italian being focused on the Italian language for institutional communication, and foreign languages (that are always taught in the language being studied). In addition to the well-established two-year teaching of two languages (chosen among English, French, German, and Spanish), this innovative programme gives the opportunity to study a third language, chosen between Chinese and Russian. The same importance is given to the legal-economic area.

Course content

In addition to the two-year study of two languages (chosen among English, French, German, and Spanish) the programme gives the opportunity to study a third language to be chosen between Chinese and Russian. The same importance is given to the legal-economic area, which - in addition to Introduction to European and international law and Introduction to international economics - also offers courses of Internationalisation strategies, Marketing and digital communication, Economic Development and Sustainability, International commercial law, and Comparative business law.

Career options

Master's graduates will rely on all-round communication skills that include knowledge in the economic- legal field (business know-how) and language skills in English, French, German, Spanish, and also Chinese and Russian. Internships provide students with real life experience of what they have studied during the course, and in many cases also offer the basis for contextualization of the experience within a theoretical framework, thanks to the final thesis, and for subsequent work opportunities in the company where the internship is conducted. Master's graduates will be able to hold positions of responsibility in businesses working internationally, as well as in local, national and international organisations.
