Partnership Program with Utrecht

Program in Economics and Business organized in Partnership with the Utrecht School of Economics (USE)

It is a one-year program specifically tailored for Bachelor students, entirely taught in English.

The program is structured as follows: first and third year is carried out in Rome, while the second year is entirely held at the prestigious Utrecht School of Economics.

Academic vision

The program aims at recruiting ambitious, dedicated students and it provides the opportunity to learn and grow in a world-class academic environment. 

In addition to teaching basic economic and business principles, the course also offers an introduction to the operation and policies of the main European institutions and the regulatory requirements of the various markets, paying special attention to the topics of competition and antitrust laws.

The course provides solid basic general preparation in the most important economic fields and offers an excellent introduction to pthe fields of business and finance. Students will gain the methodological training they need to understand and analyse economic and financial phenomena, including the acquisition of basic legal concepts. The course also offers an introduction to the operation of the main European political and economic institutions and the regulatory requirements of the various markets, paying special attention to the topics of competition and antitrust laws.

Despite the economic orientation of this course, great importance is ascribed to teaching law, but in an economic context and within the framework of a natural reduction of law credits due to the international scope of the course and the prevalence of “domestic” contents and sources in the main legal teachings of traditional degree courses in economics (public law, private law, commercial law).

Why USE?

  • Excellent reputation

  • High-quality courses
  • Extensive scale of global cooperation
  • Strong sense of community
