"USI is a very international university. In my class alone, there were students representing 19 different countries. The USI campus is equally modern and accommodating. The courses combine applied projects, often involving local businesses. This helps students obtain real-life experience in the business world."

USI is a young and agile university that offers to its students a quality education and an enhancing study experience. International faculty teach students with an interdisciplinary, engaging and interactive approach, allowing for the practical application of theory.

The quality of the study curricula is complemented by the small size of USI, its cosmopolitan environment and its informal and dynamic culture.

These elements make USI a platform of opportunity open to the world, where students can engage in direct dialogue with their professors and define their educational path, discover unexpected horizons, and embrace international careers
