Double Degree in International Business EU-Australia

The Double Degree "Creating Sustainable Innovative Competitive Advantages in International Business for EU-Australia" sees the involvement of five European and Australian Universities: Ca' Foscari University of Venice (Department of Management), University of Strasbourg (École de Management Strasburg), Corvinus University of Budapest (Faculty of Economics), The University of Western Australia (Perth, UWA Business School) and the University of Adelaide (Faculty of the Professions).

Through this course of study students of economics have the opportunity to attain an international double degree.  The agreement, indeed, entails the conferral of: a Master's Degree in Advanced Management (curriculum International Management) and the "Master of Science of International Business" from the University of Adelaide, or the "Master of Science of Commerce" from the University of Western Australia.

Italian students must take their first year of the Master's Degree in Advanced Management (curriculum International Management) at Ca' Foscari and after having gained 60 ECTS credits will be able to move into their second year at either of the University of Adelaide or the University of Western Australia in Perth.
The Double Degree allows students to:

  • gain two Master's degrees;
  • study in a cosmopolitan and multicultural context;
  • enter the international job market, improving job opportunities in an ever more increasingly global context.

Applications and admission requirements

Applications are open to students enrolled in their third year of a Bachelor's degree at Ca' Foscari or at another institution, provided they graduate by the summer session directly preceding their enrolment in the Master's Degree in Advanced Management (curriculum International Management) for the following academic year.
Students who intend on applying must have a good level of English.
The call for applications is published each year in spring, and specific scholarships are available.


Selection process

Students will be selected through a points-based selection process.  The final rankings will be determined by the following:

  • Academic Career (50%);
  • An interview (50%) to be held by a Selective Committee of Ca’ Foscari Faculty, who will evaluate the candidate’s personal motivation and attitude.

Course equivalencies

Once successfully selected, students will be contacted by the programme coordinator, Prof. Guido Massimiliano Mantovani, in order to establish an agreed course of study during the period of study abroad (University of Western Australia, Perth or University of Adelaide) based around course equivalencies.  
Course equivalencies and grade conversions will be made available shortly.
