One of the best choices in Italy for Business Studies

Overall
The course of Business Administration is totally held in english. There are many courses focused on accounting and finance, less space is given to marketing or communication. Generally during the courses are assigned Group works. There are many possibility to study abroad (Erasmus+ study and traineeship) and partnerships with important international institutions. The professors generally are really competent and outstanding in their professional training.

Overall
Before I started this course, I had almost no clue what Economia was all about. I attended a Language High School before and my passion are languages, but I felt like I wanted to study something new. I'd like to work in a European Institution some day and language knowledge is surely useful, but not enough. So I chose Economia. In my country it's seen as a degree that is more likely to make you land in a good job position. I chose Padova first of all for its closeness to my hometown, but I knew it's also quite renowned in Italy for its teaching quality and after-graduation ranking position for jobs, especially in the economic field, second only to Bocconi (Milan).

I am currently at the 3rd year of my degree and I find myself very happy with my choice. Sure, it's been tough at times, particularly in the beginning when I had more Mathematics to catch up than my average colleague (most of them had previously studied in economic or scientific schools). But all the courses I've taken until now have been really interesting. I like the fact that this degree gives you a broad preparation - we have exams about Economics, Accounting, Law, Finance, Business Administration and so on. The first 2 years all the predetermined courses are compulsory, but you are free to choose how you wish to build your 3rd year: do you want to get more specialised in Corporate, Entrepreneurship, Banking, Law...? No problem, there's always a path for you.

Almost all professors are kind and helpful. They are surely all well prepared and know their subject deeply - although in some cases they weren't always able to convey their knowledge (lacking teaching skills), it's possible to prepare yourself for an exam on your own.

Schedules are very well organised - really, I've heard stories from my friends of other faculties and I feel lucky. Timetables never overlap. You know lessons and exams' dates in time. All lessons are in buildings close to one another so you don't need to move and hurry from one part of the city to another. Most of the lessons have "human hours": other than in particular cases, you will never have to wait 4 hours between a class and another, instead you will be free either in the morning or afternoon. For each class there are at least two teachers that follow the same program, so if you don't like the teaching methods of one, you can go listen to the other. The only thing I don't like is that classrooms immediately close after the class ends so one can't just stay there and study but instead has to move somewhere else, without apparent reason, but that's not a big deal.

Sorry this is so long. I think I've mentioned everything. Overall I believe this is a good university and degree program and I would recommend both to those who are interested in the economic field but also have a international vocation and want to acquire skills in many related areas.

The neighbourhood known as "seconda Arcella" is not far from the center and is also very quiet. Buying a bike (and a good padlock) is a must.

I liked especially the town of Padova, the department of psychology was a little bit to big to make new friends there but the "Logopedia" was really small and it was much easier to get to know some italien people.

If you need an accomodation, write soon to SASSA, the office for international relations because if you miss the final dates you have to look for a flat on your own and that┤s not really nice at Padova...
