Master's Degree in Insurance Management
"I highly recommend this Master's program created in partnership with ANIA as it offers a privileged path for students to be able to enrich their theoretical and practical skills specific to the field of insurance."
Francesco Rizzo
Summer School Transaction Banking for International Growth
"The Summer School has given me the opportunity to supplement my cultural background through knowledge of new and now much sought-after topics, and has provided me with the opportunity to enrich my cv and have a competitive edge in the job market."
Valentina Acquaviti
International Trade & Export Management Course
"For the role I am in, it is a good starting point to be able to hone techniques in the area of international trade and relations with our clients who are purely foreign and with whom we have relationships on a daily basis."
Agnes Farini
Master's Degree in Insurance Management
"I chose the Master's program in Insurance Management because I felt the need to supplement the knowledge and skills I had acquired during my undergraduate studies with additional managerial skills specific to the insurance industry."
Francesco Rizzo
Executive Master Digital Innovation & FinTech
"The choice to undertake this training was dictated by the natural drive toward a process of digital transformation, already intrinsic to the nature of the business reality in which I operate, which I felt I wanted to be a part of. The course allowed me to reconcile my financial knowledge with my interest in the Tech and Digital world, expanding my technical and personal skills, thanks to the continuous confrontation and stimuli received from professionals in the field. Particularly challenging was the opportunity to put into practice the theoretical notions, acquired during the lectures, in the realization of a Fintech Startup, which, from my point of view, allowed to stimulate important synergies among the members of the working pools and touch on the dream of being an entrepreneur of oneself. The Master's degree in "Digital Innovation and Fintech" has laid a solid foundation allowing me to welcome a new challenge in my professional growth, within the same company, with the assignment of two new roles, first as an Innovation Specialist, within the "Innovation, Sustainability and Value Strategy" Department, and since a few months within the "Digital Customer Channels" Function, as a UX-PM Web designer."
Francesco Fasano
Master's Degree in Insurance Management
"For someone passionate about the insurance world, this training course is ideal: beyond the invaluable confrontation with the students who participate, all of whom come from a wide variety of industry backgrounds, it offers the opportunity to meet the best professionals and lecturers, whose passion is capable of engaging the entire class." "The training plan is highly qualifying: essential theoretical content for those who work or intend to work in the industry is addressed, and there is active participation in practical workshops. The variety of topics covered in the lectures was enlightening not only to learn about the characteristics of the current insurance world, but especially that of the future."
