Since 2005, the FIU in Genoa program, has welcomed over 500 FIU students for study abroad and exchange experiences in the subject areas architecture, interior design, the humanities and social sciences and hospitality management. Much of the program's success lies in the close partnership with the University of Genoa through faculty and student collaborations, partially funded by the European Union's Erasmus + program.
Building on this foundation, FIU in Genoa is currently expanding opportunities for FIU students and faculty across disciplines, departments and colleges by furthering our strong relationships with local institutions in academia, culture, industry and government.
In cooperation with our Italian partners, the program is expanding its scope to become a nexus of student and faculty interaction in Italy and beyond - advancing FIU’s international profile through mutually beneficial engagement with local communities.
FIU Global is developing new opportunities in Genoa and Italy for students and faculty including:
- Reciprocal exchange
- Collaborative research
- Study abroad
