Why study in Verona and Italy?
Study and live in Verona, a modern, medium-sized city with a larger than life history, located near Venice, Lake Garda, the Dolomites, and the borders of Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia. Located on the beautiful Adige River in the Veneto region of Italy, the city is home to historic palaces, bridges, squares, and churches. Three Shakespearean plays are set in Verona: Romeo and Juliet, the two lords of Verona, and the taming of the shrew. While visitors come year-round to experience the literary and artistic heritage, annual fairs, shows, operas, and historical sites, the city retains its elegant, authentic atmosphere. As a student here, you have plenty of school and entertainment activities, local and international dishes, and multiple transportation options.
Choose from courses in international management, business administration, Italian studies, and more. All students must take an intensive Italian course in the first six weeks of the semester to help them integrate into their environment. The Verona program combines academic courses with practical learning, tours, and excursions to create an integrated cultural experience.
Your studies will extend beyond the classroom to business visits, excursions, optional tours, local festivals and traditions, and other activities in the city.
