Program OverviewUSAC Torino

As a bustling urban center and Italy's fourth largest city after Rome, Milan and Naples, Torino is a natural destination for language, culture, and international business education. The city blends historic charm with big-city vitality. It has one foot in its regal Roman and Baroque past, and the other in its new role in global business and innovative design. Imagine the wide, tree-lined avenues and commercial pace of Chicago or Paris coupled with the classic Italian "dolce vita"—complete with prize-winning cappuccino and locally produced chocolate and wine. Torino's historic cafés were recently named the best in Italy!

Program Focus

The Torino program is ideal for students who are interested in studying International Business, Art/Architecture, and Italian Studies in an exciting, cosmopolitan setting. Named the Youth Capital of Europe in 2010, Torino is an excellent location to study and practice the Italian language and to experience Italy’s rich culture away from the crowded tourist areas. Torino is home to many prominent international companies, and this program provides an excellent opportunity to meet European students and business people in a leading center for European business and business education.

This program offers three diverse academic areas: International Business, Architecture/Design/Art and Italian Studies. You may choose to study for one semester or a full year; in the summer you can attend a five-week session. All students are required to take an intensive Italian language course during the first six weeks of the semester to help them integrate into their surroundings. The Torino program combines academic coursework with practical learning, tours and field trips to create an integrated cultural experience.
