Milan, Italy

The Milan program will be available to students beginning Fall 2014, and will complement ISA’s long-standing options in Florence and Rome. With 41,000 students on four campuses, the Cattolica is Italy’s premier private university and the largest Catholic university in the world. Originally an 8th century monastery, the Milan campus has 25,000 students, including 2,500 international students, and offers degrees in both Italian and English in 12 different faculties.

“I am thrilled to see ISA’s infrastructure in Italy expand to a third city,” Senior Site Specialist Jessica Pino said. “Milan has so much to offer a study abroad student.”

ISA Milan will offer Academic Year, Semester, Summer and Intensive Month sessions. Academic Year and Semester programs will offer a Business, Communications & Italian Culture track. Students enrolled in the program will have the opportunity to enroll in a wide variety of content courses taught in English alongside both local and international students.

As with all ISA programs, students will be supported by full-time on-site resident staff. The program will also include cultural activities and excursions to Florence & the Chianti region, Torino, Verona and Venice.

Universidad Argentina de la Empresa (UADE)

Buenos Aires, Argentina
ISA has expanded semester program offering in Buenos Aires to include a new host university: The Universidad Argentina de la Empresa (UADE). Semester participants for Fall 2014 may take courses with locals in various fields including Business, Economics, Tourism and Hospitality, Gastronomy, Humanities, Engineering, Science, Mathematics, Audiovisual Design, Fashion Design, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, and Interior Design.

“With our new program at the UADE, ISA is proud to add a host institution that specializes in business, to round out our offer in Buenos Aires,” Curriculum Oversight Director Lisette Montoto said. “We are particularly pleased to be able to offer a variety of Business courses taught in English.”

Students may also enroll in Spanish language courses. An added advantage is that many of the university’s courses with locals in Business are taught in English, thus allowing ISA participants to enroll regardless of their Spanish proficiency level. In addition, students with an advanced level of Spanish proficiency may enroll in courses with locals instructed in Spanish.
