Located in the eternal city of Rome, LUISS is an international university specialized in the fields of social sciences, providing a diverse learning environment based on entrepreneurship, responsibility, and sustainability.
At LUISS, we inspire and enable a better world, believing that social sciences play - and will continue to play - a central role in the emerging digital society.
Since its founding, LUISS has developed privileged relationships with the business community, through its affiliation with Confindustria, the General Confederation of Italian industry, as well as with legal studios, government institutions, and civil society.
LUISS has also forged special relationships with European and Italian institutions, thanks to the numerous faculty members that have served within them.
The LUISS educational model combines academic rigor with practical relevance.
Its main features are:
Research-led: LUISS faculty members are top experts in their fields, actively engaged in their research communities as well as in their professional and management communities.
Experience-based: LUISS relies upon a highly selected pool of top executives, chartered consultants, and diplomats to discuss topics they experience systematically.
Problem-driven: our programs require students to engage in projects and research, in which they are expected to develop solutions to real-world problems.
The LUISS model is strengthened by a lifelong learning approach that challenges students’ intellectual curiosity, inspires individual effort and self-discovery, and encourages independent and critical thinking.
The university is organized into four departments: Economics and Finance; Business and Management; Political Science; Law. Within these departments, approximately 50% of the courses are entirely taught in English, and we have a significant level of international cooperation, including almost 50 double degrees in all continents.
According to the nation’s leading ranking system, LUISS is the best private university in Italy. QS ranking considers our political science department among the top 50 in the world. According to the Financial Times, LUISS' Master in Management is ranked among the world’s top 100 master's programs. Since 2015, LUISS has ranked in the top 1% in the world for its business school and Department of Business and Management.
