Why Study in Rome as a Graduate Student?       

Students in the graduate programs at St. John’s University’s Rome campus have the best of both worlds by earning an American degree while living in a major European center of government, politics, international organizations, and multinational corporations.  

Since the programs for both the M.A. and the M.B.A. programs are the same on both the Queens, New York and Rome campuses, students have the option to spend semesters at different locations. St. John’s has a working campus in Paris, which will soon offer M.A. students the chance to complete another specialized certificate during their summer months. Global Destination Courses allow M.B.A. students to complete part of their studies elsewhere in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Students in the M.A. program may also take intersession destination courses as they are available.

Students taking courses on the Rome campus benefit from small class sizes and distinguished faculty. All faculty members teaching in the M.A. program hold doctoral degrees and come from the New York campus, while M.B.A. faculty are a mix of senior-level professors from New York and local instructors with experience in the European market. Students in the thesis track work closely with faculty to plan and execute a research study while responding creatively to an intellectual challenge determined by their own interests and concentration.

The many different government agencies and international and non-profit organizations in Rome offer students diverse internship opportunities, many of which are paid and full-time. These allow students to build their professional networks with worldwide contacts and add international work experience to their resumes.
