The ‘Scuola Scienze Aziendali’- School of Business Sciences – has taken a creative approach to two fundamental issues: it offers its students a highly qualified training opportunity and at the same time it meets the requests of companies looking for new collaborators who are willing and ready to take on roles with progressively greater responsibility.
Our School’s vocational training initiative is greatly based on a case study analysis method, which brings students closer to their future professional career. Consistent with this method, our choice of teachers embraces all areas of expertise in this field: private and public entrepreneurs and managers, professors from universities and higher education institutes, administrative and technical executives, and communication and human resources experts all take turns teaching in class, by simulating company meetings and by promoting student participation.
Vocational training requires both general knowledge and technical expertise, as well as keen intellectual interest and constant updating. Learning specific skills must go hand in hand with personal development.
The ‘Scuola Scienze Aziendali’ - School of Business Sciences – carries out its vocational training in collaboration with companies and institutes located in the United States, Canada, Japan, Singapore, Australia, China, Taiwan, Argentina, Chile, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Great Britain, Germany, France, Spain, Sweden, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg and Ireland by organizing student internships and combined study programs, as well as by encouraging a shared definition (and hence the carrying out of relevant work experience abroad) of new professional profiles. Training can truly be modern and up to date only if it is on an international basis.
International experiences, which constitute the core of the educational program at the ‘Scuola Scienze Aziendali’ - School of Business Sciences –, recognize the need for overall personal growth. Gaining technical expertise must be a smooth and well-balanced process when compared to the broader quest for personal and cultural growth.
"To form" means to understand that the enormous amount of information made available by modern society can indeed be useful for those who are aware and wisely critical of it, by maintaining a proactive and watchful perspective on ongoing changes and innovation.
LEARNING TO BE
Individual personality is constantly measured against that of others. “Learning to be” represents the opportunity to constantly verify one’s role through comparison with the environment in which one performs, and the work environment is certainly one of the main settings in which this occurs. "Learning to be" is the ability to manage oneself by showing awareness towards oneself and one’s skills, it is the willingness towards collaboration and teamwork. Training is indeed aimed at facilitating the continuous reprocessing of information through which each individual gathers the data that constitute one’s future general knowledge and technical expertise: on account of this, each individual is likely to develop and contribute new ideas to the organization to which he or she belongs.
LEARNING TO PERFORM
Individual growth and professional growth are therefore tightly interrelated. "Learning to perform" is first of all the acquisition of a work method. "Training" possesses an immediate reference, that is, to teach the currently applied procedures of a professional activity. However, it has an essential and basic objective, specifically, to enable students to adopt awareness and attention as guidelines towards innovation, in order to constantly update their skills, seeing that professional improvement is a fundamental requirement of modern life.
