Program Description

One of a kind in Italy, the Language and Management to China program prepares you to work in professional contexts connected to modern-day China. While you hone your skills in Chinese, you also acquire a broad knowledge related to marketing, management and law with a strong emphasis on contemporary Chinese society. While the language learning focuses particularly on sector-specific terminology related to the economic and legal sphere, the rest of the study program explores management practices and processes as well as the increasingly global context in which today's businesses and institutions must operate. Despite having a solid theoretical basis, the economic, legal and management skills are strictly linked to management and market scenarios in China. 


Program structure

The two-year study program involves course work, a thesis, and a curricular internship, which can be carried out in Italy or abroad. You are also encouraged to apply for a study abroad period in China, which is made possible by Ca' Foscari's numerous exchange agreements with prestigious Chinese universities and can last up to a year.

Launching your career

As a graduate of the program, you will be uniquely prepared for work in high-responsibility positions in businesses, financial institutions, and public entities that operate in connection with China thanks to the degree's strategic pairing of linguistic study with a solid knowledge of Chinese culture and economics.


Entry requirements and admission

To be eligible for admission, you must satisfy certain curricular requirements. You, therefore, need to have completed:

  • 36 ECTS in Chinese and South Asian Languages and Literatures
  • 6 ECTS in specific areas of History, Political Science or Social Science

You need a certified B2-level knowledge of English as well as an advanced knowledge of Chinese (Mandarin) and a basic knowledge of Italian.
