Accepted students will be asked to pay a deposit of 350€ to the chair after receiving the confirmation. The final costs will be calculated during the planning of the Summer School and communicated immediately. Through different subsidies, We try to keep the financial burden for students as low as possible. The total amount can be expected to be no higher than 450€.



In addition to various guest and expert lectures, the students work in international teams on a given topic and present the results at the end of the three-week Summer School in Bergamo. At the same time a seminar paper will be written.

Please refer to the respective module descriptions of your study program for information on how credits from the summer school contribute to your degree.


During the three weeks of the program there is enough time for the students to work on the topic. Topics include "Globalization in a European Context", "Digitization of Government", "Culture & Identity", "Frontiers in Global Business Ethics". After the end of the Summer School Students will have enough time to finalize their seminar paper and to incorporate feedback from the final presentation.
