Programme structure

According to the home university of the student, he/she is obliged to spend one semester or one academic year at LIUC following a specific study plan. Write the final thesis, discuss it in LIUC and obtain therefore also the Bachelor (180 ECTS/credits) or Master of Science (120 ECTS/credits) degree in LIUC beside the diploma they will obtain with their home university.
All courses will be taught in English but if the student has the proof of the good knowledge of Italian language different arrangements can be made.
