International relations

An extensive network of international relations and partners
The Marco Biagi Department of Economics has set up an extensive network of international relations for research purposes, and cooperates with universities in other countries in the Erasmus + and Overseas Programmes.
By means of these Programmes, students have the opportunity to attend courses at Universities in a number of European countries and to spend time on a work placement in companies abroad. The Department also promotes scholarships for placements and dissertations abroad.

In particular, Erasmus+  aims to modernise and improve higher education across Europe and the rest of the world.
It gives students and staff opportunities to develop their skills and boost their employment prospects. Good practices will be shared between universities and businesses in Knowledge Alliances.
Higher education institutions from participating countries can work with those from neighbourhood countries, non-EU Balkan countries, Asia, Africa and Latin America to develop their educational systems.

What does it involve?

  • Opportunities for students to learn abroad, including:
    - Studies, including at Master's level;
    - Traineeships in businesses.
    - Erasmus+ Master loans
  • Opportunities for staff to undertake professional development activities, including:
    - Training or teaching;
    - Attending workshops delivered by businesses.
  • Cooperation between institutions: deliver joint masters’ programmes in a consortium of higher education institutions from participating countries.
  • Cooperation with businesses: companies and higher education institutions can work together to share knowledge.
  • Cooperation outside the EU in neighbourhood countries, Africa, Asia, and Latin America through projects that increase an organisation’s competencies or expertise through.
    - Joint projects to modernise teaching methods, materials and curricula;
    - Structural projects, including the involvement of national authorities.
