Outside of the classroom, students may visit companies, meet executives and have the chance to hear guest speakers, including alumni and corporate leaders from the business community. In addition, students may take advantage of internships or work on research projects with faculty.
Being able to communicate in multiple languages enables the kind of network building and personal relations that can make a big difference when doing business. The objective of foreign language courses in the WBB is to provide students with the ability to use English at an advanced level, while Italian, a second European language and Chinese will be taught at the introductory level. Progress in language learning will be certified in courses at each school or through recognized language certificates.
WBB students will attend three different universities, each with a unique academic structure. Each school will provide specific support to assist WBB students in making the transition from one campus to another, both from an academic and administrative point of view. WBB faculty directors will also be available at all schools to help students choose a program of study that fulfills the WBB requirements and make plans that best fit their individual interests and career aspirations.
