Student orientation services

The new website of the Student Orientation Office, with new form and content, is the result of a long process aimed at providing a better and more comprehensive service to its many users. Users are mostly secondary school pupils approaching the University for the first time, and schools' University Orientation Services which organise activities to assist their pupils in post-school choices. Making a decision means choosing the best alternative to satisfy one's expectations, preferences and aspirations.

Course of study in brief

Characteristics and purposes

The course provides the necessary tools to understand the functioning of economic systems and the companies that comprise them. A solid overview is achieved with the study of subjects aimed at providing the foundations of political economy and business economics, the measurement, analysis and modelling of economic and financial phenomena, the evolution of the economic system from a historical perspective, and the legal institutions governing relations between individuals and businesses. Graduates will be prepared to face the challenges and changes arising from the technological progress of companies, the economic system, and society, with particular attention to the international context and global challenges. The new professions require excellent knowledge of economic, financial and business disciplines and a solid mathematical, statistical and econometric basis to manage and analyse the plethora of information and interpret the algorithms and models used in decision-making processes. In order to achieve these objectives, in addition to curricular teaching, workshops and participatory activities on some of the main corporate IT tools, case studies, and internships in research institutions, companies and public administrations are planned. Furthermore, students will have the opportunity to gain study and internship experiences abroad, thanks to international mobility programmes. The degree course is based in Vicenza.

Work areas
The course trains students for two professional roles: expert in globalised economic systems and companies operating at international level and expert in economic and financial systems. Graduates in Economics, Business and International Markets, relying on solid foundations in the economic/business field, can demonstrate skills in line with the current dynamics of the labour market, especially in an international context, and can find interesting job opportunities in public and non-profit companies, offices and studios of territorial bodies, national and international research bodies, public administrations, trade unions and professional bodies.

From school to university
Access to the course is scheduled locally, in the methods and terms set out by the annual call. As regards initial preparation, the following skills are required: logical/mathematical skills, understanding and production of logical and quantitative reasoning, including through the use of basic mathematical notions; linguistic and verbal skills, including knowledge of grammatical structures, syntax and lexicon of the Italian language and ability to read and understand texts. The possession of these skills will be verified through specific assessment tests as indicated in the Didactic Regulations.
Tutoring, counselling and job orientation services are guaranteed, as well as assistance for students with disabilities. There are incentives, contribution reductions and scholarships for deserving students. The course is activated at the Vicenza site as per the agreement between the University and the Vicenza University Foundation.
The reference point for students for information on the didactic organisation is the Economics Didactic and Students Operational Unit.
Here are the slides of the presentation of the course presented at the last open day.

Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS)

As part of the Quality Assurance system, complete, updated and easily available information on objectives, study plan, resources used and results achieved for each degree programme is made available through the SUA-CdS - Scheda Unica Annuale del Corso di Studio (Degree programme annual factsheet). This includes an Overview and three public sections (Learning Objectives, Student Experience, Learning Outcomes) which together provide a wide range of information about each degree programme. The SUA-CdS also contains an administrative section (Administration and Quality Management) that is for internal use only.

The Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS), which is currently available only in Italian, is a valuable tool that can be used by the University to design, implement and reorganise, as well as to evaluate, each degree programme. However, the SUA-CdS factsheet is also useful for students, to help them choose the right programme of study.

Il Cds a matrice economica, mira a fornire allo studente un'adeguata preparazione in ambito aziendalistico, statistico-matematico e giuridico, e particolare enfasi su caratteristiche, problematiche, opportunità e soluzioni adatte ad imprese orientate all'esportazione e all'internazionalizzazione. Il percorso formativo punta a sviluppare negli studenti approfondite competenze in materia di economia politica e di economia aziendale utili alla misurazione, analisi e modellizzazione dei fenomeni economici e finanziari, nonché significative conoscenze dei mercati internazionali e dell'economia globalizzata, rivolgendosi anche a piccole, medie e grandi imprese già orientate ai mercati internazionali o in via di internazionalizzazione, operanti sia in settori industriali che nei servizi. A tal proposito il CdS si propone di formare laureati capaci di valutare gli investimenti sui mercati esteri; di organizzare processi produttivi su scala internazionale; di comprendere la complessità delle relazioni internazionali delle imprese ed orientare le scelte in un contesto internazionale caratterizzato dalla crescente integrazione dei mercati e dalla rapida circolazione di uomini, prodotti, servizi, idee.

Per una solida preparazione di base, il percorso didattico consiste in alcune aree specifiche caratterizzanti che offrono gli strumenti cognitivi necessari a cogliere i differenti profili della realtà indagata; tali aree sono:
- Economica
- Aziendale
- Statistico-matematica
- giuridica

Il CdS prevede che nel corso del primo anno lo studente possa apprendere gli strumenti di base di carattere economico, aziendale, statistico-matematico e giuridico utili per iniziare il processo formativo; fin dall'inizio, tuttavia, l'elemento internazionale sarà presente negli insegnamenti erogati.
Con il secondo anno verranno approfondite le competenze relative alle diverse aree caratterizzanti il processo formativo, con l'erogazione di alcuni insegnamenti di carattere economico, aziendale, statistico-matematico e giuridico rivolti in maniera specifica ad approfondire le competenze proprie delle figure professionali che si andranno a formare. In particolare verranno rafforzate le conoscenze volte a comprendere, analizzare e interpretare le caratteristiche dei sistemi economici internazionali.
Quest'ultimo aspetto viene ulteriormente rinforzato nel terzo anno quando si prevedono insegnamenti rivolti in maniera diretta e specifica alle competenze in materia di economia internazionale e globalizzata. Al fine di dare maggiore flessibilità di scelta agli studenti è previsto un basket, con la possibilità di completare preparazione con alcuni insegnamenti erogati in lingua inglese, volti in maniera specifica a caratterizzare ulteriormente le competenze.

In a Quality Assurance system, students play a fundamental role: each student can play their part by participating in the Quality Assurance groups of their degree programme and in the Faculty-Student Joint Committees or, more simply, by taking part in the Student Survey on teaching, or questionnaires. It’s in this context that specific workshops for student representatives (‘Laboratori di rappresentanza attiva’) are periodically made available to students by the University and the University’s Quality Assurance Board.

Other useful things

Crediti Formativi Universitari (CFU/ECTS credits): Italian university courses are based on the CFU system. 1 CFU is equal to 25 hours of study. The average annual academic workload for a full-time student is generally assumed to be 60 CFU. CFU and ECTS credits serve the same purpose and generally have the same value.
Degree class: Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes that have the same learning objectives and activities are grouped into “degree classes". The educational content of each programme is set autonomously by each university; however, universities are required to include certain educational activities (and the corresponding number of CFU credits) set at the national level. These requirements are established in relation to each degree class. Degrees in the same class have the same legal value.
Double/Joint degrees: the Italian universities may establish degree programmes in partnership with other Italian or foreign universities. Upon completion of these courses, graduates are awarded a joint or double/multiple degree, one from each Partner University.
