Double Degree with EM Strasbourg Business School

The double Master's Degree in Global Development and Entrepreneurship, jointly organized by Ca' Foscari University of Venice and Université de Strasbourg/Ecole de Management Strasbourg Business School (EM Strasbourg Business School), allows selected students from Ca’Foscari to attend second year courses at EM Strasbourg Business School and obtain a double degree: Master’s Degree in Economic Development and Entrepreneurship and Master Grande Ecole.

Erasmus scholarships specific for this program may be provided, in order to foster integration between Italian and French higher education systems, and thus contribute to the harmonization of university education throughout Europe.
