The University of Verona is now accepting applications for EIBGA, the brand-new MA in English for International Business and Global Affairs, held in partnership with the Italian Diplomatic Academy.
In one year of study, this practical, highly interactive course will lead you to possess professional English language skills in operational and managerial areas where intermediation and negotiation between parties are crucial.
A team of experienced practitioners and academics will guide you through the issues and challenges of global markets and public diplomacy.
You will learn how to work efficiently and effectively in the international arena, promoting and developing your professional intermediation and intercultural skills.
The Master adopts a blended learning approach: you will attend face-to-face sessions either in person or online and will be provided with an online component to further your studies at your own personal pace.
The Master will allow students to acquire and/or develop specific English language skills in operational and managerial areas where intermediation and negotiation between parties are crucial.
Priority will be given to international relations at commercial and diplomatic level, proceeding from the assumption that key characteristics of good communicators at all levels of linguistic competence and in all areas of work include flexibility, ability to win interlocutors’ trust, and familiarity with critical and responsible thinking.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to apply acquired skills to their areas of work, whether private or public, profit or non-profit. They will also have acquired the means to manage wide-ranging commercial, diplomatic and relational contacts at both national and international level.
The Master will thus train specialists in economic and diplomatic communication in English, since relational networks in international professional contexts require cooperation between parties seldom sharing the same linguistic-cultural backgrounds.
The course adopts a Blended Learning approach, with either face-to-face or videostreaming and online support lessons, in line with governmental and university provisions on COVID-19. A Learning Oriented Assessment (LOA) system will also be implemented, facilitating learning and ensuring a continuous assessment of the level of competence achieved by participants during the course.
Learning by doing
The learning-by-doing approach will allow participants to build the required skills, building on previously acquired individual language knowledge and competence. The integration of material used in class and provided online and in a continual learning cycle ensures a seamless experience when passing from the face-to-face to the digital and ensuring flexibility and choice of time and pace organization when studying independently.
Emphasis will be given to activities which provide participants with the opportunity to further elaborate independently both content and skills covered both in class and online.
Specialization + Practice
Each teaching module will include two complementary aspects a) lessons focused on specialized content and b) extended sections tailor made to extend language knowledge and the specific skills that are required for each sector.
The involvement of experts in the specific teaching/learning topics promotes both knowledge-sharing and direct experience in the field, as well as providing for a stimulating exchange of ideas based on the experience of active practitioners.
