Università degli Studi di Roma 'Tor Vergata'

Universitá degli Studi di Roma 'Tor Vergata' is one of the leading academic institutions in Italy. The Tor Vergata campus was founded in 1982 in the southern area of Rome. Tor Vergata’s graduate programs are a key component of the University’s success, as they are highly regarded around the world.

The Faculty of Economics at Tor Vergata has always considered cross-cultural activities and international exchanges an important and fundamental aspect of educational programmes and research activities. The Faculty of Economics has approximately 4,000 students enrolled and hosts a library with more than 30 thousand catalogued monographs and access to over two thousand magazines and journals, a data processing centre, a language lab, and a graduates’ employment opportunities office, which promotes links between graduates and enterprises.

Tor Vergata's Centre for Economic and International Studies (CEIS) was created in 1987 as part of the Faculty of Economics. It aims to promote advanced training and high-quality research in Economics. CEIS organizes seminars and conferences, establishes joint programs with other universities, national institutions and international organizations, and organizes research in all fields of economics. Research is carried out not only by members of CEIS, but also by appointed scholars from other institutions. CEIS puts particular emphasis on publishing activities, which include the CEIS Research Papers, the CEIS Working Papers, Labour (a quarterly international journal published by Blackwell) and a series of books with international and Italian publishers.

CEIS offers specialized studies in the economic aspects of international cooperation and urban development, which may be chosen as an option for the second year of the Mundus Urbano Master Programme and related research activities.
