CIMBA Italy Program: Business, Communication, & Journalism Courses

Review this Program


The Consortium Institute for Management and Business Analysis (CIMBA) is an internationally-recognized business institute that trains future professional leaders. The CIMBA program offers semester, summer, and graduate study abroad opportunities with rigorous, high quality, professional courses taught in English. Courses focus in the areas of Business, Journalism, and Communication Studies; however, other electives are also offered. These programs are designed to provide students with a meaningful international experience while allowing students to remain on schedule for graduation.


The campus is located in the picturesque town of Paderno del Grappa, Italy, in the Province of Treviso. Located in the foothills of the Dolomite Mountains, just 60 miles north of Venice, winding, cobblestone streets, lush gardens, rolling hills and expansive villas characterize the town. Faculties are dedicated to an environment that minimizes the separation between instructor and student. Courses are scheduled to encourage travel opportunities for an enhanced learning experience. Semester students receive two long weeks, two long weekends, and most normal weekends to travel. Summer students receive two long weekends and one normal weekend to travel.

LEAP, an optional leadership training program offered during the semester, is a great opportunity for students to enhance their resume and set themselves apart when looking for an internship or job after graduation.
