Program Description

If you are passionate about the complex mechanisms of the global market or if you have an entrepreneurial spirit, this programme will put you on the right path.

Taught entirely in English, this Global Development and Entrepreneurship program offers you the tools you need to engage with and exploit international markets, especially emerging ones, and to understand business growth processes in an international context. The program gives you the opportunity to meet and learn from successful entrepreneurs and the directors of both Italian and international companies. You can also gain your own international experience by applying to complete your program as a double degree with the École Management Strasbourg in France. The program provides study grants for entering the work force thanks to the Luciano Iglesias Foundation.



The program offers two English-taught curricula, or study paths:

  1. Global Markets
  2. Entrepreneurship

Over its two-year duration, both paths pair course work with seminars and other cultural and educational activities that involve the participation of entrepreneurs and the directors of Italian and international companies.

A double degree with the École Management Strasbourg (France) is possible, allowing you to obtain a master’s degree in International & European Business by carrying out the first year of study at Ca' Foscari and the second in France.



As a graduate, you'll be ready to pursue a career as a venture capitalist, an entrepreneur, an expert in international markets, a foreign sales manager, an export manager or a manager in charge of finance, control and business accounting. You'll be able to seek employment opportunities in the following fields: 

  • Commercialisation and promotion of goods and services
  • Commercialisation of information technology and communication
  • Purchasing of goods and services 
  • Market analysis
  • Economic systems analysis

Life at Ca' Foscari is both rewarding and stimulating thanks to a wide range of activities and events organised by the university as well as the students themselves. You can get involved in student clubs and sports, as well as take advantage of everything the city itself has to offer, from international cultural events to some of the world's most beautiful art and architecture. Plus, if you choose to live in Venice's historic centre, you'll surely enjoy living locally and sustainably thanks to the fact that distances are manageable and there are no cars or traffic to compete with.
