Located in the heart of Rome, LUISS specializes in the Social Sciences to educate over 9,000 students from around the world. Since its founding, LUISS has developed privileged partnerships with the business community – through its relationship with Confindustria, the largest Italian industry association – as well as with the legal practice, governmental institutions, and civil society.

The LUISS educational model combines academic rigor with practical relevance. LUISS utilizes three approaches in the design and the development of its programs:

  • research-led: faculty members are experts of and actively engaged in their research areas
  • experience-based: LUISS relies on a select pool of top executives and chartered consultants to teach topics that they experience in their day-to-day work
  • problem-driven: programs require student to engage in projects and research, in which they are expected to develop solutions to real-world problems.

LUISS also offers students a variety of learning opportunities to develop and refine soft skills, such as leadership, teamwork, problem-solving, relational abilities, ethics, responsibility and sustainability. With over 200 international academic partnerships, LUISS offers double degrees with international universities in Europe, North America, and East Asia.
