Northwestern hosts Italian partner institution's students in summer program

Students from Bocconi University in Italy learn about credit risk management at Northwestern, with Chicago as their campus.

This summer, 33 students from Italy's premier business school, Bocconi University, had the unique opportunity to learn first-hand about credit risk management in Chicago.

Now in its fifth year, Bocconi Campus Abroad brings Italian students to Northwestern University's campus to complete courses taught by both Northwestern and Bocconi faculty members, lecturing on topics ranging from culture and history to finance and business. Additionally, students engage in site visits to various financial organizations such as the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Chicago Mercantile Exchange. This three-week program affords students the opportunity to become immersed in American culture within one of the world's major financial centers.

Bocconi, a long-time partner of Northwestern, also offers a direct enroll undergraduate exchange program in which Northwestern students can study at Bocconi's campus in Milan, Italy.
