"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."
The USI Faculty of Economics provides high-level education to its students, through teaching approaches that benefit from the academic skills of its internationally acknowledged professors, who are engaged in leading research in their respective subject areas.
The study curricula available at the Faculty provide rigorous training in Economics and, at the same time, enable the development of critical and analytical skills and overall enthusiasm for the study of the discipline.
By acquiring and developing these skills, students can succeed in their international academic or professional careers, with competence, flexibility, and the right amount of intellectual curiosity that will enable them to ask the right questions and to address issues with creativity and flair. In this way, the Faculty contributes to train tomorrow's decision makers and researchers.
An essential element that defines our training model is the possibility provided to students to work and study in small classes and in small groups, leading to beneficial and constructive interactions between students and faculty. At our Faculty, everyone is given the opportunity to have their say and to contribute personally to their own training, within the international environment of USI and in the context of the favourable framework conditions of the Swiss university system.
