Course recommendations:
If you are choosing to take courses in Italian then make sure that you interact with the other Italians from the word go because they are the best way to make sure you improve your italian and to ensure that you have understood everything in the class. Plus the longer you leave it the harder it becomes to approach them, they are unsure of how much Italian you know and are less forthcoming.

Personal comments:
Oral exams can be ery daunting for foreign students. The Italians study courses differently to Irish students. Rather than learn what a course is about and gaining an understanding of it, they instead seem to prefer memorising books which is a bit pointless!

Bocconi was a great international program. Very, very international, with students from all over Latin America, United States, and Europe. Probably one of the most international exchange programs of any of the international exchange programs offered in the US, due to the fact that it was not just Americans together overseas. It was almost like picking up and going to enroll directly in an Italian university.

The Italian system was very different than the American system - one exam at the end of class, oral, in front of the entire class watching. What a performance, but then very Italian when you consider. Was a great learning experience, in more ways than one.
