    Dedicated to students in the Fifth year of high school, the internship offers them the opportunity to attend the Department for a week, attend selected lectures of the first two-year university courses and participate in dedicated seminars and workshops, up to a maximum of 30 hours in total.

    The internship experience is designed to spread economic literacy among students and raise awareness of the skills needed at entry and those acquired at exit.

    At the end of the internship, students who have participated in at least 12 hours of activities will be allowed to take an early test of initial preparation. If positive, the test will be considered valid for matriculation purposes. If negative, the test will have to be taken again on the dates set for registration.

    • Summer School
    • .

    This is an intensive program that alternates seminar activities and workshops with hands-on, guided activities with the aim of proposing and introducing the principles of economic reasoning to selected and motivated students.

    In the course of the meetings, modes in open dialogue with the lecturer, laboratory and simulation activities are used in which students can test in an autonomous but guided way what they learn as they go along.

    All activities are scheduled in the time slot from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., for a total of 40 hours, and are usable in School/Work Alternance for students in classes IV.
    Applications will be selected on the basis of motivational and profile requirements of the student.
