To introduce you the GESAM, here below you can read an interesting interview to one of the past students, Ginevra, enrolled in the previous edition. Take few minutes of your time, and go through this interesting personal overview
D: Why did you choose the Master Gesam?
R: I chose the Master Gesam because after having obtained the Bachelor Degree I was doubtful about whether to continue my studies with a Master’s Degree or I would prefer a more concrete educational path to an academic one; furthermore, I was unsure about the specialisation to undertake; for these reasons the I was attracted by the multidisciplinary aspect of the Master GESAM and I chose it.
D: In your opinion, was it useful to follow the Master entirely in English?
R:Yes, personally I think it is an added value, nowadays the knowledge of English is essential and follow lectures in English is truly one of the best way to become acquainted with this language.
D: The Faculty Commitee consists of University professors, of Officers of Non-Governmental Organizations and Institutions and Technicians, both national and international, experts in the economic, legal and social fields. Would you share with us the most positive memory fixed on your mind about a lecture in class?
R: I remember when one of my colleagues asked to a professor of the ILO International Training Centre how is scheduled a typical day of an International Organization Officer. It impressed me that the professor was not at all embarrassed by this kind of question, actually, he was glad to answer. All lecturers, we had, were always very open and available to clarify any kind of question, doubt or to give us further explanations and this, in my opinion, is essential to better understand each topic and to establish a more sincere and direct relationship with people expert in the field.
D: What about the Summer School experience in Geneva?
R: Definitely a fruitful and interesting experience. On the one hand visits and courses at the International Labour Organization allowed students to be part of a real international institution and to have direct contact with its members. On the other hand Geneva is certainly a global hub for those who aim for an international career, therefore it was very stimulating to have the chance to visit such a city.
D: Thanks to the Master GESAM students are offered the opportunity to apply for an internship in several working environments, in Italy or abroad, at NGOs, Research Centers, Enterprises, Banks, Institutions, in order to create a suitable solution tailored to the needs of each student. How was your internship experience?
R: I’m currently doing a three-months internship at a Research Centre on climate change, because the courses of the Master on sustainability really fascinated me. I was curious to experience the reality of a research centre and understand the various aspects of climate change issue, so I’m pleased to have chosen this opportunity.
D: Who would you recommend to enroll in the Master GESAM?
R: I would recommend this Master to people, like me, who wonder whether they should undertake an academic or working career, because GESAM programme offers a variety of lecturers in different disciplines: law, economic, social rights and even scientific.
D: What are you in now?
R: I’m currently working as an intern, however my next step will be enrolling in International Relations, hoping to start an international career.

International Master in European Studies: come to Brussels to become EU Policy Advisor or EU Project Manager
The International Master in European Studies is organised jointly by the European Desk of the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce and the Institute of European Studies of the Catholic University of Louvain to prepare students to work as EU Policy Advisor and Project Manager.
This intensive Master is organized in a 3-month schedule, enabling students to gain specific competencies and skills in a short period of time. Students will have the possibility to gain knowledge on the European Union institutional structure, functioning and policies, as well as get knowledge about EU funding methods and Project Cycle Management. The Master teaching methodology is a practice-oriented approach, which aims at transferring knowledge through a learning-by-doing process. A limited number of 30 students are admitted to the Master: they are from different countries and diverse educational backgrounds.
The Master’s programme is composed of three sections:
In the first section, the topic of the European construction is analysed from the historical, juridical and economic points of view. The main European policies, strategies and monetary agreements are here examined. This is the basis of the theoretical knowledge needed for Lobbying and Project Management.
The second section focuses on learning the mechanisms, tools and criteria for designing and managing successful EU-funded projects and tenders. The student learns through a learning-by-doing approach, with the support of case studies and interactive workshops. The lessons and the practical activities are held by professional EU Advisors, who have years of experience in planning, advising and providing technical assistance to SMEs, NGOs, think-tanks, public entities, and international organizations.
In the third section, several seminars at the European institutions are organized in order to meet EU officers and to have a direct contact with professionals. This section aims also to provide students with a wide vision of the different realities operating on the Brussels area in the European field.
The Job Link module is one of the master’s strengths: it is a good start for the entrance in the Brussels job market. It provides the support to students in further developing their career path by a seminar and the one-to-one meetings with a recruiter. The CV of the students will be included in a CV Book which is sent to various organizations and companies in Brussels.

Il mio nome è Giulia e ho 28 anni. Vengo dalla Sardegna, ma ho vissuto 8 anni a Roma, e attualmente vivo a Lucerna, Svizzera.
A Roma ho frequentato la Facoltà di Giurisprudenza, e durante questi anni sono venuta a conoscenza del portale “Carriere Internazionali” gestito dall’Associazione Giovani nel Mondo. Il sito mi è stato di fondamentale aiuto negli anni per trovare le migliori e più interessanti opportunità lavorative.
Soprattutto, nell’Aprile 2017, scorrendo nel portale, sono venuta casualmente a conoscenza del bando “Torno Subito”, un progetto sponsorizzato dalla Regione Lazio che prevedere il finanziamento per un primo periodo di formazione all’estero, ed un secondo periodo di esperienza lavorativa da svolgere all’interno della Regione.
Grazie all’immenso supporto offerto dall’Associazione e il loro costante aiuto nella compilazione della domanda, ho avuto la fortuna di essere una delle vincitrici del bando e l’opportunità di svolgere la mia prima fase di formazione in Svizzera, a Lucerna, presso la Business Hotel and Management School.
Infatti, è sempre per merito loro che ho conosciuto la BHMS, une delle migliori scuole nel campo dell’Hospitality, con la quale Giovani nel Mondo collabora da anni.
L’esperienza che sto vivendo è semplicemente meravigliosa, e non posso essere più grata per la possibilità che Giovani nel Mondo mi ha dato, perché è grazie a loro se ora sono qui. Attualmente svolgo un Master in International Business and Hospitality Management. La qualità formativa della scuola è altissima e dimostrano di voler offrire la miglior educazione possibile. Ulteriormente, l’ambiente incredibilmente internazionale della scuola offre un’aggiuntiva opportunità per conoscere altre centinaia di culture.
La Regione Lazione, con il Bando Torno Subito offre un’occasione imperdibile, e Giovani nel Mondo dà la possibilità di rendere quest’occasione realtà.
Soprattutto, Daniela e Klaudia sono sempre state assolutamente presenti per qualsiasi dubbio, domanda o problema, e non smettono di esserlo anche ora che sono all’estero.
Se tornassi indietro, rifarei altre mille volte la scelta che ho fatto, e consiglio vivamente a chiunque di sfruttare le stesse opportunità, perché occasioni del genere non capitano tutti i giorni.

Alissa, a student from USA, chose GESAM Master to give a boost to her career. Here she tells us her experience and the raisons why she chose Cà Foscari University and Venice.
1) Why did you choose the GESAM Master?
As a student from the United States, I am constantly asked as to why I chose to move to Italy and participate in this Master. I chose to apply for the GESAM program for many reasons! The main reason I chose this program is because it is structured very different from more 'traditional' masters and I loved the fact that it combined intensive lectures and classwork with a study period at the ILO and included an internship which provides students with valuable work experience. I also chose this program as it is a great fit for my professional goals and previous experience. My undergraduate degree was in Business Administration with a focus on marketing and human resources. I have always wanted to pursue an international career and am also interested in public policy and the NGO sector. Therefore, I feel that the competences I have gained through this program along with my previous knowledge and experience has provided me a solid foundation to progress my career. Of course, I cannot forget to mention the amazing opportunity to live in Venice - one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
2) The Master GESAM faculty is composed of university professors, experts from NGO’s and both National and International Institutions, along with experts in social, economic and law fields.
Could you please share with us the best souvenir of your education received in the classroom?
I believe that the intensive classroom section of GESAM is structured really well and provides students with in-depth knowledge of a variety of fields and specializations. Everyday I learned something new from the professors and experts and found a new topic that sparked intrigue. Additionally, I greatly enjoyed learning about these topics in both a theoretical and practical manner as it provided insight into what a career in this arena would look like. It is difficult to name a single part that was my favorite as I feel that each session offered students something new, and therefore was able to sort of provide an education that fit each of our individual interests.
3) How has the Summer School experience in Geneva been?
The opportunity to attend lectures from officials at the International Labour Organization was incredible. It was a more in-depth time to learn about, not only the amazing work performed by such an important worldwide organization, but also to learn about topics in a very practical way that can easily be applied to my future career. The time in Geneva is also spent learning about and touring the United Nations and the World Trade Organization, further enhancing the knowledge learned during the classroom period. Also, the summer school allows the chance to experience life in one of the most international cities in the world and the chance to reunite with your classmates! This is obviously a top highlight of the GESAM program!
4) GESAM offers to student the possibility to do an internship in different realities, in Italy or abroad, in NGOs, Research Centers, Enterprises, Banks, and Institutions, thus building a personalized proposal for each student. How is / has been your internship experience?
I am currently interning for an organization in Bergamo, Italy called ADAPT - Association for International and Comparative Studies in Labour and Industrial Relations. This has been a perfect fit! I was interested in the association initially because I would like to pursue a career in public policy and social research through a non-profit or NGO and that is precisely what the organization focuses on. My time at ADAPT has been spent working on various projects including writing book reviews, researching for article contributions to the bi-weekly bulletin, proofreading and editing journal articles, and assisting with the yearly international conference. I have even had the opportunity to publish my very own work that was distributed in the bi-weekly international bulletin! The internship has increased my interests in subjects I previously did not have much knowledge on and provided with me international work experience - two crucial things for beginning an international career.
5) To whom would you suggest the enrollment to GESAM Master?
I believe that the GESAM program would suit a variety of students. I would say that any prior knowledge of the field of law would greatly benefit students as that is an important focus of the program; however, as someone who previously had little law exposure, the professors were able to explain the topics in an understandable way. I think that this master would be best for those with previous work experience as the topics are varied and can suit many passions and experiences while building on top of previous competences. Of course, anyone with a desire to begin an international career focusing on human rights, law, global institutions and corporations, or international relations would greatly benefit from this program.
Would you like to pursue an amazing career and join the next generation of global leaders?
BHMS is definitely the best choice for you! By choosing BHMS, you are choosing education that combines academics with professional development and real-life work experience, thus gaining a solid foundation to achieve your individual career goals.
