International Exchange Programme

Exchange Programme is an optional programme reserved to graduate students of Luiss Business School. The programme gives to the best and most motivated students the opportunity to study at Luiss Business School’s partner institutions abroad.

Hosting institution are assigned on the basis of a merit list and then on the preference order expressed by candidate students (i.e. the first student on the merit list will get his first choice, following students on the merit list will get their first choices, unless spots available for those particular choices have already been assigned to previous students in the merit list. If so, they will be assigned to hosting institution in their preference list that have not yet been assigned to other students).

Students who have not been assigned to any hosting institution will be placed on a reserve list, in order of merit list. The vacant slots (those who have not been assigned and those that have been made available by withdrawing students) will be offered to the students in the reserve list. The reserve list is not subject to preferences expressed in the application.

Students who have been assigned a place abroad will be waived from tuition fees* at hosting institution. Nevertheless, students should pay for their costs of travel, living, visa (if required), health insurance (if required), and extra fees for teaching materials (if required).

For the US destinations, students should have a C1 English level knowledge.

The periods indicated below are set by partner schools and cannot be shorten.

*Except ESSEC, Fudan and Antai.
