ISTAO business school firmly believes in the value of international experience and encourages its students to participate in international Programmes that enable the mobility of students. Attending lessons, performing internships or preparing a dissertation become an integral part of the student’s study plan and enable students to directly perceive the European dimension of education, to move easily outside their frontiers, and to access an international job market where local tradition meets global requirements.
The International Management post-graduated course, fully taught in English, offers students the chance to spend part of their internship abroad working for Italian companies in their internationalization or export area, through the partnership with ICE, the Italian Governmental Trade Agency.
In recent years ISTAO welcomed students from Cameroon, Morocco, Costa Rica, Russia, the Czech Republic and Poland.
ISTAO’s network relies on partnerships with international universities and business schools such as the Krakow University of Economics (PL), the Masaryk University of Brno (CZ) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston (USA).
In accordance with Università Politecnica delle Marche (ITA) and Ohio College of Business (USA) within the Global Consulting Program, ISTAO organizes teams of Italian and American visiting students working on business cases provided by local industries.
ISTAO also participated in the Khalifa Fund for Enterprise development promoting ideas and innovation coming from young Italian entrepreneurs.
In addition, current international projects involve the creation of a Higher Education school for Public Administration in the Adriatic and Ionian Region and the creation of exchange programmes with the University of Hanoi, Vietnam, within the Postgraduate course in International Industry and SMEs.
The international office deals with all procedures regarding:
- Support, welcoming and accommodation of international students and staff.
- Ongoing and incoming mobility services.
- Network management of international industries hosting ISTAO students.
- Relations with EU and non-EU University/business schools and other institutions.
