Even though Italy is currently experiencing a weakening economy, it still remains Austria’s second most important export market behind Germany. Northern Italy in particular is a strong economic driver in the immediate vicinity with close ties to Austria and industry in Upper Austria. From our prespective, the University of Bergamo is the perfect partner for the new Master’s degree program in Global Business. Russia’s size means great potential for many industrial companies in Upper Austria and offers great opportunities as an exciting “emerging market”. Austria continues to be the gateway to markets in Eastern Europe and that means Russia, too.

The joint Master's degree in Global Business offers a truly unique approach to intercultural business education. The students live and work together for a full year with peers from three different countries and cultures. This provides an unparalleled opportunity to combine a professional-quality management training with a global experience. Program graduates become ambassadors of a progressive style of management and possess a genuine understanding of different perspectives, something which is increasingly essential in our global networking economy. They have an improved ability to leverage the advantages of diversity and advance their problem solving skills. Not surprisingly, the demand for graduates of this program is soaring at international companies.

We are a very Italian company. Board members of our company are more than 65 years old, and the company itself has been on the market for more than 100 years. And since we are in this sense a very Italian company, we tend to avoid risk and innovation. It is with this problem that we asked the University of Bergamo for help. The group of GB students supervised by us had quite a challenging task of linking the theoretical analysis with the practical one. I was responsible for the practical part, and professors from Bergamo University for academic background research. Almost every week we met to work together to find practical applications for theoretical calculations on the subject. Global Business students designed a very focused presentation about the company and how our performance could be improved through innovation. We hope that by showing the presentation to the top management of the company we will be to introduce some of the innovative tools proposed.
