Established in 1868, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice was the first business school in Italy and has become one of the finest educational establishments in the area, offering an extensive list of educational programs, especially in business, economics, languages and cultures.
Situated in Venice’s Grand Canal, at the heart of the most breathtaking and romantic cities of the world, Ca’ Foscari gained its credibility by putting several of its graduates in the competitive global market.
GMI POST had the pleasure of meeting the university’s rector, Tiziana Lippiello, as she proudly talks about Ca’ Foscari’s strengths and what it has been doing to enhance the experience of each of its students.
Lippiello said that the university’s Interdisciplinary Studies program is at the forefront of Ca’ Foscari’s offerings.
“This is where we combine the study of management economics with languages. For instance, we have a program called Languages and Management in China. We also do the same with Japanese Studies,” Lippiello explained.
While the school recruits more Japanese students, the university is also advancing its internationalization programs for further collaboration in Japan and with industries associated with Japan, such as its two double degree programs in nanotechnologies.
“I would like to have more Japanese students in Ca’ Foscari,” said Lippiello, who went to Japan in 2019 to visit some universities there.
“I think that international experience is very important when it comes to opening the minds of students and getting to know other culture,” she said.
Lippiello believes that the students will truly enjoy their time at the university because Italy is a rich country that offers extraordinary experience and, with its career placement program, Ca’ Foscari University is more than ready to welcome students who are open to learning and experiencing a richer life.
