Program Overview

Take your studies to Rome where your time in Italy’s capital will quickly become filled with strolling narrow, cobble-stoned streets, appreciating century-old buildings, and immersing yourself in the local culture. Designed for students looking to gain an international perspective on business, the Business + Culture program is an incredible opportunity to live and learn in The Eternal City while earning credits toward your degree. 

When class is in session, you’ll have the opportunity to enroll in courses at CIEE’s renowned partner institution, Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali (LUISS), which is known for its prestigious business programs.
