One of a kind in Italy, the Language and Management to China programme prepares you to work in professional contexts connected to modern-day China.
While you hone your skills in Chinese, you also acquire a broad knowledge related to marketing, management and law with a strong emphasis on contemporary Chinese society. While the language learning focuses particularly on sector-specific terminology related to the economic and legal sphere, the rest of the study programme explores management practices and processes as well as the increasingly global context in which today’s businesses and institutions must operate.
Despite having a solid theoretical basis, the economic, and legal and management skills are strictly linked to management and market scenarios in China.
Double Degree available
Students can apply for the double degree with Higher School of Economics – HSE (Saint Petersburg, Russia). More information will be available on Ca’ Foscari website soon.
