The course might provide different curricula and educational packages with respect to some fundamental strands of knowledge and skills which are currently particularly important, such as, for instance, corporate systems governance, business communication and management of companies.

Some teachings awarded with 10 credits might be divided in modules of at least 4 credits each. Educational activities are provided in two semesters per academic year and, in accordance with the “technical” limits imposed by law, the first year it provides an equitable distribution of the various training activities to areas, scientific sectors and credits, with several choices by students between predetermined possibilities. In the second year, however, there is a strong pre-eminence of the business economics educational activities and credits, elective activities, and the final examination.
