Program Overview

Take your studies to Milan, the world capital of business, finance, fashion, design, media, and publishing! Designed for students with a background in business, this rigorous study abroad program makes one of Italy’s most popular cities your home away from home while giving you insight into critical international business and economic issues. 

When class is in session, you'll study at CIEE Milan’s partner school, the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (UCSC), one of Italy’s most esteemed private research universities. In addition to taking courses at UCSC, you’ll also have the option of taking classes at CIEE Milan. All courses are delivered by highly qualified CIEE and Cattolica faculty.
