Venice School of Management becomes the School’s 100th Study Abroad partner

J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics at University of Galway has announced the significant milestone of a 100th Study Abroad partnership.   Students on the B Comm (Global Experience) programme will be able to apply for an opportunity to learn at the Venice School of Management, part of the renowned Ca’Foscari University of Venice.   The Study Abroad partnerships now run in 22 destinations around the world, including 15 European locations, as well as the US, Australia, Canada, China and Hong Kong, Japan and Korea.   Dr Murray Scott, Vice Dean of Internationalisation for the College of Business, Public Policy and Law at University of Galway, said: "We are thrilled to welcome Venice School of Management as our 100th study abroad partner. This milestone is a testament to our ongoing dedication to broadening the horizons of our students, providing them with unique opportunities to immerse themselves in different cultures and business environments. Our excellent network of global partnerships spanning Australia, Asia, Europe and North America are instrumental in shaping our students into well-rounded, globally-minded business leaders."   Professor Alma McCarthy, Dean of J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics, said: "Reaching this milestone of 100 study abroad partners is a remarkable achievement for our School. The partnership reflects our commitment to providing a world-class education that prepares our students to succeed in a global marketplace. The addition of Venice School of Management will provide our students with yet another opportunity to learn and grow in a unique cultural and academic environment - not only enhancing their academic journey but also providing them with a deeper understanding of European business practices and cultural landscape.”   Over the past seven years since the launch of the B Comm (Global Experience), more than 800 students have experienced the benefits of two key components of the degree programme: a semester of study at one of the University’s global partner institutions and a work placement offering hands-on experience in a real-world business setting.   Venice School of Management is EQUIS accredited and noted for its strong emphasis on research, innovation and global business strategies.   Ends
